Note from Lionel: Below is a post from our Dell Financial Services Marketing Director Jan Andersen. I'll let her take it from here.
Through our channel program, PartnerDirect, we provide financing to our partners. Starting today we’re now enabling our partners to provide financing to their customers. We’ve expanded our Dell Financial Services (DFS) offerings through a relationship with GE Capital which establishes the ability for our partners to offer their customers financing on Dell products and solutions.
What does this mean for our channel partners? It means an easier way for them to increase sales to their customers. Through customer financing, partners can help their customers to conserve capital and preserve their existing lines of credit while payments over time can enhance customers’ purchasing power. Aligning payments and terms to their budget needs, DFS can help partners’ customers get the technology they need now and for the near future, today. DFS also offers finance promotions on occasion that may help partners generate business and give their customers attractive finance offerings to acquire technology solutions. Select solution providers may also qualify for a fee benefit while participating in the program.
Our partners earn greater account control via Dell’s financing offers in which they can increase customer loyalty and enable refresh opportunities, helping their customers get the most out of their technology to ensure continued revenue.
In short, we’re listening to our partners’ requests for financing for their customers and delivering a simple, convenient and affordable way for PartnerDirect solution providers to offer their customers ways to acquire IT. Our channel partners can benefit from innovative online resources to manage their portfolios, gain timely customer credit decisions and pricing information, and streamline the sales process to help them grow and thrive.
More information on this new partnership and the benefits of Dell Financial Services is now available through Dell PartnerDirect.
