SDS Associates Lease Broker Program:

The Start-Up Broker Program provides all of the skills, strategies, expertise and support necessary for a new Broker to be successful in this business-necessary industry.

We provide all of the skills, strategies, expertise and support necessary to be successful in this well-established, $200+ Billion dollar per year, business-critical industry. Brokers profit from a business that requires very low overhead to operate, and appeals to a wide variety of industry types and equipment markets. It is estimated that approximately 80% of American businesses lease some of the equipment they need to be successful.

The Program consists of:

- A 3-Day intensive on-site training program that covers all aspects of the equipment leasing and financing industry, sales and marketing strategies and techniques, and an in-depth guide to working with Funding Sources and Vendors in order to get transactions paid in a timely and efficient way.

- Comprehensive training and reference materials that mirror the training curriculum, and provide practical resources for creating marketing and operational pieces to assist in the successful marketing of your leasing and financing services.

- Formalized, ongoing coaching and support that will help you attain the practical goals you have set for your business.

SDS Associates Franchise Lead Instructor:

Scott A. Smith has over 30 years of experience in providing dynamic training programs to individuals and businesses. He holds a Master's Degree with Honors from Boston College, and has earned the professional designation of CLP (Certified Leasing Professional). He is a continuing member of the American Society for Training and Development and has held senior Training positions with major financial institutions including CitiCapital and AT&T Capital, and has also provided the skills, strategies, guidance and support necessary for new equipment leasing and financing entrepreneurs to be successful.

The Equipment Leasing & Financing Industry:

Equipment leasing and financing is not subject to the same regulations that are so prevalent in the banking industry. In fact, equipment leasing and financing is considered to be "unregulated" which is a very good thing.

The trend for banks tightening their lending practices has created even more opportunity in the equipment leasing and financing business as business owners who still need equipment in order to operate effectively are turning to leasing as an attractive way to acquire the equipment they need to be successful.

SDS Associates Franchise Examples of the types of equipment that can be leased include, but are not limited to:

  • Automotive
  • Compressors
  • Computers
  • Construction
  • Conveyors
  • Dry Cleaning
  • Embroidery
  • Energy Mgmt
  • Forklifts
  • Generators
  • HVAC Systems
  • Landscaping
  • Machine Tools
  • Medical
  • Packaging
  • Phone Systems
  • POS Systems
  • Pressure Washers
  • Printing
  • Security Systems
  • Solar Power

There are currently dozens of non-bank funding sources that are actively seeking to provide the funds necessary for Broker generated leasing and financing transactions. Additionally, the leasing and financing industry is well served and supported by small, independent Broker organizations as over 50% of all leasing organizations in this country have fewer than 4 employees.

How it Works:

The equipment leasing and financing Broker is vital to the completion of transactions that allow American businesses to acquire the equipment they need to be successful, and that allow for the Vendors of that equipment to complete a sale that may not have otherwise been accomplished due to a lack of customer cash resources.
