Sofico: The added value of software and systems
As the industry goes through an unprecedented period of transformation, lease companies, OEMs, captives and rental companies are adjusting their strategies and transforming their business. To meet the needs of tomorrow's customers whilst staying ahead of (or catching up with) disruptors will require more than a solid strategy based on a clear vision.
As your product offering evolves to cover the full spectrum of contracted vehicle usage (financing, leasing, renting and sharing as well as non-vehicle based mobility products), the added value generated by a system that can manage your entire business efficiently on one platform becomes a strategic advantage. 

This presentation is done by Wim Bauwens, Marketing & Communication, Sofico. Followed by a Q&A moderated by Piet Maes, Chief technology Officer, Sofico
