In collaboration with the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA), Capgemini has completed the 11th annual study of current technology trends in the equipment finance market.

The Business Technology Performance Index 2013 provides insight into the technology trends and forward-looking initiatives that equipment finance companies have begun, are anticipating, or have recently completed in efforts to drive their firms into new markets, new opportunities, and improved and more efficient operations. The main objective of the BTPI is to uncover the current thinking of market-leading equipment finance firms relative to decision processes associated with operations and technology initiatives. Along with insights into operations and technology trends, the report also reveals the current state of technology in the equipment finance industry.

The 2013 BTPI was written and compiled during the period from July to October 2013. It is based on industry research and responses from 20 participants representing bank, captive and independent finance companies across a spectrum of ticket sizes, market approaches and geographies. Most respondent companies are members of Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA).
