With omnichannel support, Point of Sale in Alfa Systems addresses all of an asset finance provider’s needs around quotation, product configuration and new business.
Alfa Systems’ quotation system empowers brokers, vendors and end customers to handle the entire asset finance product set, from retail credit agreements to complex tax-based leasing.
Finance quotes are delivered via Point of Sale and bespoke digital apps, providing a responsive user interface for mobile, tablet and desktop. Working in close collaboration with our clients, we assemble digital apps quickly and efficiently using POSkit, Alfa Systems’ library of UI components, and following a ‘design thinking’ methodology.

The excellent usability in the front end means our dealers achieve complex tasks with minimal fuss.”
With sophisticated evaluation, sales workflow and business rules (see Business Process Automation), Point of Sale and associated Alfa Systems digital apps feature automated, real-time credit decisions. A single, integrated pricing engine can solve for multiple targets on a before- or after-tax basis for leases or loans.
Quotes can be evaluated for numerous components, including rate, commission, rental and residual value, with financial structures defined for each market. Integration with industry-standard catalogues allows complete asset classification, including vehicle options, while value-added products such as maintenance can also be defined as part of an overall product template.
These templates can be created and deployed rapidly, enabling optimum speed to market and featuring fully flexible payment profiles configured as required. Commissions and subsidies can then be calculated automatically from converted quotes.
Alfa Systems is so easy to configure that we don’t need to be technical experts in it; we have the partnership with Alfa, and this enables us to be experts in our own products and our own market.”
Robin Jeffery, Head of Transformation, HTB
Multiple channels of input, from broker-based to self-service, provide support for multiple brands and routes to market. Transactions can be started on one channel and picked up on another, optimising quote throughput.
Frame or master agreements allow you to set vendor-specific defaults and rules, meaning the end user enters only minimal detail within preconfigured restrictions.
With Alfa Systems we have full and immediate control over product configuration, enabling us to deliver flexible lending products to meet the needs of our clients.”
