UniCapital Corporation has jumped on the Internet bandwagon introducing LeaseAdvisor.com, an online financial planning and advisory service for small and mid-size businesses that will conceivably increase equipment-lease loan origination.
Business owners can sign on to the Web site to gain access to interactive tools and planning models to help them understand and evaluate various financing options that may help their businesses. For those looking to apply for and secure equipment financing, they can do so online with the help of a disentangled process enhanced with an application "dialogue".
LeaseAdvisor.com also offers growth-planning tools that visitors can take advantage of, creating customized analyses related to the growth of their business.
Some of these features are a downloadable revenue-planning model that estimates a company's future profits based on information provided by the site's visitor, and an evaluation of financing options prioritizing seven financing vehicles based on provided personal information.
The company also offers a service that simulates scenarios to help small and mid-size businesses identify and evaluate their current income, expenses and production capacity as a tool for managing future growth.
As for the first securitization with this new service, a source with the company said an "origination could take place any second," implying rapid portfolio growth.
