Alcatel-Lucent Financial Services extends 0% finance promotion

Alcatel-Lucent Financial Services has extended its 0% finance promotion until 31st March 2012 owing to its runaway success since it was launched last summer. The offer, which includes a three month payment deferral for ‘bedding-in’ of new technology, is available through the network of Alcatel-Lucent Business Partners. The offer can be used to fund Alcatel-Lucent’s complete portfolio of Enterprise solutions.

Eamon Connaughton, Head of Distribution at Alcatel-Lucent Financial Services said, “Resellers have told us that the main obstacle in closing sales is lack of budget so we have chosen to extend this affordable, low cost payment plan. Using the 0% finance plan, business customers can continue to invest in our innovative solutions, helping them to remain competitive and current with the rapidly evolving communications environment.”

Martin Rix at BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions who partner with Alcatel-Lucent Financial Services has been impressed by the level of interest in the promotion from the channel noting “We’ve experienced a phenomenal increase in the number of enquiries relating to this promotion. Credit applications have increased by an impressive 378% compared to the previous five month period and this just shows businesses are looking to invest providing the benefit case stacks up.”
