They delivered an effective solution that meets our needs and, most importantly, the needs of our introducers."

Nolan added, "McCue further demonstrated its commitment to our success by minimizing our start-up costs and aligning our ongoing outlays with the growth of the business and our increased usage of the system."

NetSol's McCue Systems development team, working in concert with integration and ASP partner LeaseDimensions, developed and deployed a web-based originations tool designed to streamline deal acquisition and funding decisions for the organization's introducer network throughout Australia.
