Micro-P launches financial services


IT and mobile distributor says services will deliver competitive and flexible solutions, ensuring resellers have the right packages to boost business

Micro-P has launched financial services which it says will ensure partners had the right packages to secure more business.

Micro-P said its financial services bring channel partners highly competitive and flexible solutions in which the company works directly with funders, resellers and end users to maximise the number of deals closed.

It added it has direct access to highly competitive finance from a range of funders for the IT channel, even for end users that fall outside of what would normally be considered a safe risk.

Micro-P’s finance specialists assess each application received and propose a deal to the funder considered most suitable for that end user, working with the reseller to overcome problems and potentially visiting the end user to get the deal cleared through finance.

Micro-P said benefits include hardware, software and all other upfront costs consolidated as one regular rental. It added it is often possible to improve the scope of the total solution users can afford by scheduling payments this way – obtaining the equipment the organisatuion needs instead of the one they may think they can afford.

Rentals made throughout the rental period are not affected by interest rates and avoid the impact of inflation. All rentals paid in any year can be fully offset against taxable profits for that year. Micro-P added that paying this way allows preservation of capital resources that are usually best devoted to business development and operational needs.

The offerings cover the whole unified communications piece including hardware, software applications, configuration and installation costs in one single lease package.

Micro-P sales and commercial director Paul Bryan (pictured) said: “Micro-P’s success is dependent on the success of our resellers and the channel was, and still is, being exposed to the cold reality of financial cut backs.

“It has been clear that user technology investments can only be delayed for so long and there is a level of demand pent up in the system that needs unlocking.

“Micro-P therefore decided to put together a set of financial services for our channel that would ease those financial restrictions and help resellers secure more business.”
