(Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Leasing Corporation announced the release of Info-Zone.com 2.0, a significant upgrade from its first generation Info-Zone.com website. The site is an exclusive online Dealer/Distributor portal that automates credit applications, autofills forms, and provides customized reports to help manage customer bases and identify sales opportunities.
“Our deep investment in an easy and useful online experience was driven mostly by our customers,” said GreatAmerica Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer David Pohlman. “I believe we’ve successfully combined the business savvy of our Dealers/Distributors and the innovative minds of our GreatAmerica teams to give our customers a competitive advantage.” The project engaged over 600 dealer/distributors in beta-testing, many of whom added new features to the upgrade.
The new site, which is compatible with iPAD® and Android® mobile tablet devices for online application completion, also features a customizable dashboard that helps users get important information quickly. Other upgrades include security enhancements, improved navigation, pricing calculators, and greater flexibility in quoting and document creation.
The site communicates with major ERP systems such as Digital Gateway’s e-automate, OMD, and LaCrosse for automatic meter uploads/downloads and data comparison. This reduces administration expense and improves billing accuracy. Data from Tigerpaw, Compass, Sales Chain, Falcon, MWAi, and CorsPro can be received by the GreatAmerica Vendor Billing Services team.
