Kubota Australia Finance (KAF) has gone live with a complete end-to-end CALMS asset finance solution from White Clarke Group in record time.
Kubota is a world leader in compact tractors, ground care equipment and excavators. Noted for innovation, the company was seeking a better way to help their extensive dealer network and end customers with more effective and flexible ways to finance their products. The company adopted White Clarke Group’s end-to-end asset finance solution CALMS, working to an aggressive seven month implementation plan, from initial analysis to going live.
An ‘out of the box’ solution allowing real agility in software configuration, business processes and system changes was key to this rapid deployment.
In addition to providing the software solution, White Clarke Group also played an extensive role in helping establish this greenfield operation. Complete end-to-end integration from initial customer contact, through to credit and eventually back-office loans management.
CALMS is now helping KAF to run a lean, agile business, allowing them to adapt to rapid market and product changes.
Vince Bilotto, IT Manager, Kubota Australia Finance was very pleased with the engagement of the White Clarke Group to not only provide a feature rich end-to-end solution that met all the key criteria of our business but also with the efforts of White Clarke Group to fully engage in all aspects of the project delivering a working solution within a very aggressive compressed time line.
The solution was a complete service package delivering not only market leadership in consulting within the Equipment Finance arena but also excellent project/software implementation and business processes management.
Colin Fleischmann, Director White Clarke Asia Pacific, says that Kubota is a key customer, with industry leadership in their products and offerings. The coupling of the two organizations in this project has brought about the foundation from which KAF can grow a successful business into the future.
