First Western Equipment Finance to Offer Online Payments Solution for B2B Loan Customers

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – First Western Equipment Finance, a division of First Western Bank & Trust announced today the launch of a free online payments feature for its equipment finance customers.

Agile Payments consulted with First Western Equipment Finance project management to find a solution that would reduce their PCI scope and comply with all the organization’s regulatory compliance issues. Agile made the recommendation to utilize Forte Checkout for the integration,” said Gene Krause, vice president of business development, Agile Payments.

First Western Equipment Finance selected Forte Payment Systems, of Allen, Texas, to provide the application used to implement the payment system.

Delivering an online payment tool to the end-customer empowers them to take greater control of their business finances. It also saves operational time for the First Western Equipment Finance customer service, accounting and collections teams, because of the self-service nature of online payments.

Working with a premier technology agency — Ackmann & Dickenson (A&D) of Minneapolis — First Western Equipment Finance was able to develop a mobile-responsive solution utilizing Forte’s software application.

“Taking a data-driven approach, A&D collaborated with the team at First Western Equipment Finance to implement a secure and intuitive payment solution that met their business objectives,” said Kevin Zinniel, vice president of business development, A&D.

Customers may access the payment application on our website, free of charge, using a desktop computer, tablet or mobile device. First Western Equipment Finance is committed to providing solutions that revolutionize the business finance process, including DocuSign electronic documents and online credit processing services.

Founded in 1972, First Western Equipment Finance provides national equipment finance and leasing services for leading brands across the United States. First Western Equipment Finance is a division of First Western Bank & Trust, of Minot, North Dakota.
