Tech Data is making it easier for Cisco partners to quote for subscription payment options on smaller orders by offering Cisco easylease payment plans through its Tech-as-a-Service portal.
Any Cisco partner can now log on and explore subscription payment options that enable customers to spread the cost of new Cisco equipment, from a single switch to multiple devices, over a period of up to three years, instead of funding the full investment upfront.
Tony Nevill, Business Unit Director – Cisco and Enterprise Networking, Tech Data UK and Ireland, said: “Cisco solutions can be quite complex and previously partners may have found it a little challenging and time-consuming to provide a Cisco easylease quotation, especially for deals of a lower value. With the automated process that Tech-as-a-Service takes partners through, it is quite easy to give end-user customers the option of switching from capex to opex. At a time when many organisations are looking to update their infrastructure, but are also keen to retain financial flexibility, that’s a powerful sales tool.”
