Microsoft New Zealand makes finance easier
Posted on 9-Mar-2011 17:51. | Tags Filed under: News.

Microsoft New Zealand today announced new features to its financing programme, enabling customers to purchase software, services and hardware with ease.

Microsoft Financing has reduced the minimum Microsoft software requirement from 35 to 15 percent for loans under $5 million, allowing customers to spread the cost of technology investments. The minimum Microsoft content for loans over $5 million is 85 percent.

Brent Colbert, Director – Partner Strategy, Microsoft New Zealand, says the new programme enables customers to take control of their IT spend and manage funds more efficiently.

“Our customers are using different types of financing on a regular basis – anything from capital raising to overdrafts. We have specifically designed the Microsoft Financing programme so these customers can get flexible and affordable loans to fund growth and development of their organisations.”

“Customers are able to finance assets such as equipment, allowing them to free up cash flow to invest in core business activities. There is a quick turn around on all credit approvals, on average it is five business days for the larger amounts but can be less than 24 hours for amounts up to $100,000.”

As a member of the Microsoft Partner Network Intergen now offers Microsoft Financing and has noticed an increase of customer enquiries about the programme.

“Being able to offer a financing option when a customer is looking to make an IT investment is great – it automatically allows them to think outside the box and not be constrained by money. We are very excited to be able to give our customers a creative financing option that really adds value by supporting their ability to purchase high tech solutions,” says Bruce Smith, Intergen’s National General Manager - Sales.

Microsoft Financing is offered through all Microsoft Partner Network Members
