42 Financing – The Benefits of Leading with Cisco Capital Leasing
Conserves cash flow and takes system price out of the equation Equipment remains off customer’s balance sheet One low monthly payment Lower costs Equipment Lifecycle Management with ability to up-sell when lease is up for renewal Maximum flexibility – eliminates risk of customer getting stranded with technology When developing and submitting a proposal to your customer for a Business Edition 6000 solution there are multiple benefits to including and leading with a leasing offer in partnership with Cisco Capital. With leasing your customers can conserve cash flow and spread costs over time, preserve credit, and avoid large cash outlays. This removes the system purchase price as an obstacle to closing the sale. Leasing equipment typically does not appear on the accounting balance sheet, eliminating the need for complicated depreciation schedules and accounting One Solution, One Payment: combine Cisco hardware, software, services and complementary third party equipment into one low monthly payment. To lower their costs customers can take advantage of competitive financing rates and residual values that reduce total cost of ownership and accelerate return on investment. Equipment Lifecycle Management means customers can manage costs, meet business demands, avoid obsolescence with flexible upgrade and migration options, and easy equipment disposal. Maximum flexibility: Leasing provides peace of mind that if technology takes a major shift the customer is not stuck with an investment in obsolete technology. When their lease is up for renewal you can help them adjust to any technology transitions that are underway which would impact their existing system. Cisco Capital lease programs are available to all eligible Cisco Customers in participating countries. Learn More: *Cisco Capital Terms and Conditions apply, subject to credit approval, not available in all countries.
