APPROVE launches mobile app to help equipment sales teams offer financing with ease

APPROVE payments launched APPROVE on the Move, a mobile application designed to allow equipment sales professionals to see up-to-date information on pending finance applications for their customers, wherever they are.

The APPROVE on the Move app is available for Apple and Android platforms. Customers can download APPROVE on the Move from the App Store or Google Play. The app is the latest tool APPROVE has deployed to drive equipment sales by helping customers present integrated financing options at every touchpoint of a buyer’s journey.

APPROVE operates as an integrated financing program that equipment manufacturers and distributors can use to provide their customers with financing that can help them purchase equipment. This software-as-a-service solution uses state-of-the-art technology to match equipment finance applications with ideal lending solutions from the network of lenders curated by the platform. The APPROVE on the Move app will help sales professionals stay on top of their customers’ applications. With the app, sales professionals can:

  • Receive notifications about new applications, approvals, funding status, and inquiries
  • Generate a funding request on the spot and share it via SMS, email, QR code or web link
  • Calculate monthly finance costs to help potential customers better understand their buying power

“It’s like having a complete financing service available to you wherever you go,” said Robert Preville, CEO of APPROVE. “We strongly believe that a sales financing approach leads to more equipment sales, and we constantly monitor how our customers use APPROVE and create technology solutions that can help support their work.”

In addition to the mobile app, APPROVE recently launched a Chrome extension that allows equipment sellers to embed financing estimates and app links into sales quotes with just a few clicks. APPROVE also offers its customers a finance application builder tool that allows customers to create their own custom finance quotes while browsing an equipment dealer’s website.

“We know from industry research that the vast majority of B2B equipment purchases are made with financing, but very few equipment sellers proactively offer financing during the sales process” , Preville said. “We put financing at the forefront of the buyer’s journey by integrating financing estimates linked to a digital application in every B2B point of sale. This new application is one more tool to help equipment suppliers and dealers track these financing requests. »
