Dell has made a concerted effort to keep cash flowing in the channel by unveiling a host of promotional financing and leasing schemes on its server and storage ranges.
Available to Registered and Certified partners through PartnerDirect, the finance packages need no upfront fees or residual value amounts, and VARs can choose deferred payment options. Promotional pricing is valid for any orders on specified hardware placed before 30 April 2009.
The packages include:
- Zero per cent financing on all Dell EqualLogic products over three years.
- Zero per cent financing on specific Dell servers over one year. This scheme covers Dell Servers, 2S Mainstream and above (M1000e, M600, M605, M805, M905, 1950, 2950, 2970, R805, R900, R905, 1900, 2900).
- Zero per cent financing on specific Dell servers over two years. This scheme covers Dell Servers, 2S Mainstream and above (M1000e, M600, M605, M805, M905, 1950, 2950, 2970, R805, R900, R905 1900, 2900).
- Financing on specific Dell servers for one year with payments deferred for three months.
Emmanuel Mouquet, EMEA channel sales director at Dell, said: “In the current economic climate, businesses are looking for alternative financing options for IT investment. By extending these financing options to customers, we are giving them the ability to avoid large capital outlays, but to remain current and competitive from an IT standpoint.
“For our channel partners this offers a great opportunity to overcome some of the financial barriers to entry that they have started to encounter out in the field. They will be able to take a very attractive proposition to their customers and hopefully stimulate business during these challenging times.”
