Business communications provider Daisy Group plc has joined forces with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions to offer a range of flexible financing options to its SME customers.
Through the partnership, which is already demonstrating a 90 per cent acceptance rate, Daisy’s customers are able to keep up to speed with the latest technology developments and stay ahead of the competition without having to pay upfront for expensive systems and equipment.
Andrew Goldwater, Managing Director of Daisy’s Retail Division said: “In the current economic climate businesses are finding it difficult to find the cash to purchase the equipment they need to upgrade their ageing or obsolete telecoms equipment.
“By linking up with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, one of the strongest financial institutions in the world, we are pleased to be able to offer our customers the very best chance of being accepted for finance so that they can purchase the technology they need to grow and flourish.
“And because they can spread their repayments over a period of time, businesses can use their cash reserves for more strategic activity instead.”
Martin Ardern, Telecoms Sales Director at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, said: “Daisy has one of the most successful sales teams in the SME telecoms space and has already come close to generating £1M of finance applications in a single one-month period.
“We look forward to working with Daisy’s sales staff, helping them to articulate the benefits of finance to their expanding customer base, and ultimately helping Daisy sell more of its cutting-edge solutions.”
BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is also working with Daisy Group to develop real-time order processing capabilities to further integrate its sales and operational processes, thereby improving customer responsiveness.
