As part of its asset finance offering, Aldermore Bank is launching an online Dealer Portal.

The fully-mobile portal aims to improve the service that it provides to small businesses by simplifying the relationship between lending partners and customers.

Now available via the Aldermore website, the portal enables Aldermore’s dealers to manage their asset finance portfolio online using document generation and electronic signature capabilities to provide a fully paperless end-to-end process.

As well as allowing dealers access to multiple payment structures which will give them the capability to offer tailored financing options, the platform will also allow the immediate online submission of proposals to Aldermore’s specialist underwriters, resulting in real-time deal updates.

Patrick Jelly, commercial director for Aldermore Asset Finance, said: “We are delighted to be launching our new Dealer Portal. We thrive on our ability to deliver a quick, efficient and seamless ‘end-to-end’ customer experience and we believe this initiative will improve it further.

“Our dealer partners demand an efficient, accurate and easy business model, and the portal will help us to better meet those demands. Thanks to our integrated approach, which pairs technology with a human touch, we’re in a position to consider each case on an individual basis, ensuring we provide every customer with a bespoke offering.

“We are extremely excited about the next stage of our Dealer Services proposition and look forward to continuing our work to support small businesses across the country.”
