Avaya is to offer a 0% finance deal that will enable customers and their channel partners to pay for equipment and services over two years with no interest and no upfront charges.
The offer is targeted at customers who decide to purchase a new Avaya SMB solution that includes their IP Office 500 with VoiceMail Pro. Avaya IP Office is the company’s flagship solution for SMBs. It is an intelligent communications solution designed to specifically meet the needs of home offices, standalone businesses, and networked branch and head offices for small and midsize businesses.
This new approach to financing is designed to help customers get the technology that their business needs and not what the budget dictates. Payments will be spread over a two year period with 0% interest. At the end of the 2 year term the customer can continue to use the equipment, buy it for a nominal amount (e.g. 1€/£1), return it or refresh it. The 0% finance is being offered by Avaya Financial Services and is valid in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland
“We know the challenges that our SMB customers face when it comes to investing in technology. They want to buy equipment now but can’t because obstacles such as budgets and funding get in the way. Avaya is addressing this need by letting our customers pay for the equipment as it us used, instead of in advance. This enables them to free up working capital which can be allocated to other areas of their business,” explains Pat Hume, EMEA vice president of channels for Avaya.
Martin Hatcher, chairman of Avaya distributor MTV Telecom who are in the vanguard of the offer commented, “This is a fantastic offer and without doubt the most outstanding initiative by any vendor in many a year. This finance deal offers resellers a true interest free finance agreement with fast payout and no hidden strings or costs.”
