BALTIMORE, MD – eOriginal, Inc., experts in digital transaction management (DTM) services, today announced that it has joined the National Equipment Finance Association (NEFA). eOriginal was invited to join NEFA following speaking engagements at several association events regarding the integration of DTM into industry best practices.
NEFA is a national association serving small- to mid-size independent equipment finance companies, lessors and brokers. With roots going back almost thirty years, NEFA is a strong association offering enhanced programs, premium networking opportunities and greater geographic and industry segment diversity.
“With an ever-increasing footprint in the equipment leasing and finance industry, it was important for us to formalize our relationship with NEFA and this important group for equipment finance companies, lessors and brokers,” eOriginal CEO and President Stephen Bisbee said. “With NEFA’s emphasis on education and improving industry practices, we feel like eOriginal is an ideal fit. Moreover, we already have a lot of clients and friends in NEFA and know we are joining a collaborative and cooperative group.”
The Northbrook, Illinois-based nonprofit trade association was created to represent the equipment leasing and finance industry throughout North America by providing a forum for personal and professional growth through networking, education and involvement.
“Our mission is to provide a forum for members to pursue personal and professional growth,” said Gerry Egan, NEFA Executive Director. “As a result, the association provides innovative companies like eOriginal an opportunity to not just connect with its members, but also share its knowledge and insights on how technology can improve industry practices.”
