TCF Equipment Finance, Inc. (“TCFEF”), an indirect subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation (“TCF”) has selected Odessa Technologies, Inc. ("Odessa"), to develop a custom solution to automate end-of-lease administration and remarketing processes.
“We are excited to work with Odessa in automating and enhancing our end-of-lease management activities including repossessions, end-of-term activities, workouts and remarketing," says Robert Stark, Senior Vice President of TCFEF. “Over the years, we have created many standalone databases to manage these processes.  The ability to fully automate and integrate the end-of-lease process will provide many benefits including processing efficiencies, adherence to risk management policies, data accuracy and reliability, as well as compliance from an accounting and legal perspective.”

“While it will be a part of the LeaseWave platform, we are designing this solution to be modular and data-source independent so that it can be plugged right into any infrastructure and can work with a multitude of legacy systems," says Kate Majewski, Associate Vice President at Odessa.  “We are also leveraging LeaseWave’s existing architecture and services, such as its extensible workflow layer. This will allow TCFEF to manage equipment coming off lease whether it be in the normal course of business or owing to the lessee’s deteriorating financial condition; users can readily configure the system to reflect their specific business processes and requirements.”
