Thanks to a new tool and/or new apps, we would like to improve both, the links between BNL Leasing and BNL Network on one hand and the link between BNL Leasing and BNL Clients on the other hand:
– With BNL Relationship managers, by providing them with an easier and faster tool to quote Leasing proposals, including asset opinion when the client wants to invest into basic and renewable equipment such as Cars, Vans, IT, Tablets, Smartphones… Providing as well right information at the right moment/step, in particular few months before the end of the Leasing contract in order to propose new offers to the clients.
– With BNL Clients in order to obtain easily quotations for their next basic and/or renewable investments (see before), to receive updated information during the period of the Leasing contract such as Tax changes, Legal changes which modify the Leasing framework.
