Close Brothers Asset Finance Engages Alfa for Major Back-Office Upgrade


The new implementation with Close Brothers Asset Finance is part of a comprehensive program of systems transformation in the business.

Alfa, provider of Alfa Systems, the software platform relied on by top asset and automotive finance providers worldwide, has announced a major new upgrade with Close Brothers Asset Finance, which has offices across the UK, and in Ireland and Germany.

The implementation of Alfa Systems v5 for Close Brothers Asset Finance’s back-office operations represents the third and largest part of a comprehensive program of systems transformation in the business. The upgrade takes the client from Alfa Systems v4 to Alfa’s latest version, v5, allowing Close Brothers Asset Finance to benefit from Alfa’s rich pricing capability, workflow, and easy integration.

Alfa Systems is a modern, cloud-based system that will bring a number of benefits to Close Brothers Asset Finance, most notably by providing an updated system that is easy to use, leading to an improved colleague experience. It will also enable faster, less expensive change while allowing the business to adapt to change more easily, removing bespoke process workarounds and manual processing.
