BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions has said that an application designed to give a credit decision on the move is the ‘first step’ toward a fully digital vendor channel.

Cassiopae designed an app that allows vendor partners of BNP to provide commercial finance quotes for clients on demand, integrated into BNP’s SalesAid platform, a desktop program which vendor partners use to gain a credit decision from the lender.

Nigel Samson, head of equipment and logistics at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions called the app a first step in "creating a fully digital process which will bring greater efficiency both for us and our partners".

Alun Booth, chief executive of Cassiopae, said clients were interested in developing technology to improve customer experience and to minimise processing costs.
