Our Solutions

LeaseWave has always been specifically engineered to be customizable, such that it can tailor-fit every leasing business. Odessa’s design teams were always directed to prepare for unanticipated future changes. The system’s flexible design choices have been further supplemented by Odessa’s strong implementation processes and diversely-talented personnel. When relevant, an implementation has been divided up into carefully-executed phases (needs analysis, low-level design, development, user acceptance testing and deployment) with the relevant staff participating in each phase.
LeaseWave 4.0, the most recent system version, is the most customizable of all previous versions. Its technical underpinnings (including its loosely coupled layers, web-service enabled middleware, coarse-grained interfaces and extensible class design) all reflect that customizability was a specific design objective. Moreover, the application is now workflow-enabled, using an in-built engine that allows customers to themselves engineer the system to wrap around unique business processes, with an eye towards maximizing efficiency, security and control.
From its onset, Odessa has always recognized that to work successfully within a lease enterprise, LeaseWave needs to interact freely with outside systems. This has been the philosophy behind its use of industry-standard technologies. As a rule, no proprietary tools have ever been used for development. This allows for surround applications – and the personnel who support and build them – to easily work with the system. LeaseWave 4.0 has taken Odessa’s open development philosophy to the next level: the system has been designed with a true Services Oriented Architecture (SOA). The system’s middleware is wrapped around a web services layer allowing all business functions to be exposed to outside applications. This makes the system natively ready for integrations. Much like the system’s loosely-coupled presentation layer (which performs no substantive validations), external applications need simply to call XML-based web services to direct LeaseWave to perform a business function. Because the services are XML-based, they are interoperable. Read More
