Pegasus Software aims to pinch market share from its competitors with its Scrap IT scheme.
The UK initiative offers SMEs a 40 per cent discount on Pegasus Opera II when they trade in competing accounting software. Opera II rivals include the likes of Sage200 and Microsoft Dynamics.
On a five-user, seven-module Opera II Enterprise RSP purchase the scheme could save a customer £3,500, Pegasus claims.
In addition, the vendor is offering a 25 per cent trade-in on competing products for its Pegasus CIS, which is aimed at the construction industry.
Stuart Anderson, operations director at Pegasus Software, said the discount was inspired by the government’s car scrappage scheme.
“The Scrap IT scheme gives partners a great marketing opportunity to offer customers something fresh when they are not as willing to spend during these tough times,” he said.
Nick Marlow, director of Pegasus VAR Minster Micro, said: “It is good news for us that Pegasus is being proactive about the downturn. Many businesses are still willing to invest in their accountancy infrastructure to make the business more efficient in tough times.”
