The portal was implemented with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This reduces the administration effort and increases security.
The ALBIS Leasing Group has been successful in the leasing market for over 35 years. The Hamburg-based company offers small businesses and SMEs in Germany tailor-made financing solutions to realise their business success. ALBIS attaches great importance to personal support, simple products and fast, digital processing.
From the freezer to the checkout system, from the shopping truck to the delivery van: Through LGH Leasing, a partner of EDEKABANK and part of the ALBIS Leasing Group, EDEKA retailers can lease new business equipment and keep their stores technically up-to-date at all times. However, the long processing times for the independent retailers were problematic.
With a new LGH leasing portal, the leasing process (request, review, approval, contract) was to be accelerated. The portal was to be accessible regardless of time and location, enable leasing enquiries online and provide a quick overview of the processing status of submitted applications.
To achieve a high speed, we designed the leasing portal application to be web browser-based: The application exchanges only a few data with the backend for execution and is optimised for easy usability on mobile devices.
Plausibility routines serve to immediately check data entries. The slim architecture offers potential attackers only a small attack surface, which leads to a high level of security, and can also be quickly expanded or changed if necessary.
We implemented the LGH leasing portal as a cloud solution with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This means that ALBIS does not need its own servers for hosting, which has advantages for availability and scalability.
Today, EDEKABANK's corporate customer advisors access the LGH leasing portal from their tablet or laptop via web browser and can fill out the leasing application directly at the Edeka dealer's premises, choose between different leasing options and download the completed contract as a PDF once the application has been approved. The application data is digitally transferred to the ALBIS Leasing Group's ERP system, where it is processed for the credit check and approval of the leasing application.
