Infotech Lead America: Polycom has introduced new customer financing options.
This flexible financing model allows more organizations to implement UC&C solutions.
Polycom is leveraging Macquarie Equipment Finance’s capabilities to provide financing solutions. In addition, through an arrangement with GE Capital, Polycom is offering its channel partners access to working capital aimed at lessening the burden of inventory carrying costs during customer implementations.
Polycom Capital has designed three programs to accommodate a variety of customer needs:
For organizations seeking no-interest financing over a shorter term, the “0 percent for 24 months option” is available to all enterprises, service providers and SMBs, though smaller companies are likely to find it especially attractive.
The “2.99 percent for 36 months” program is ideal for organizations seeking below-market, longer-term financing.
The technology refresh financing program is for customers wanting the flexibility of upgrading to next-generation solutions without waiting until the end of the financing term. It provides organizations the option of refreshing their recent purchase at specific intervals within the term of the program, without financial penalties or fees.
“These new attractive financing options from Polycom Capital put unified communications and video collaboration solutions within reach of nearly any business, and we believe it will help us sell even more of the full product portfolio to our customers,” said Eric Brown, Polycom Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer.
“We are excited to help Polycom offer its customers financing options so they can create comprehensive unified communications and collaboration solutions,” said Nicholas Holmes, global head of vendor programs for Macquarie Equipment Finance.
