Alcatel-Lucent Sign Finance Agreement with GE

Alcatel-Lucent has launched a new agreement with GE in the UK to provide finance solutions for UK and Irish enterprises. GE’s finance solutions enable UK and Irish businesses and organisations to reap the benefits of Alcatel’s hardware and software communications products and services, without the burden of significant upfront investment.

These financial solutions are also designed to help Alcatel-Lucent’s business partners increase sales, as well as build on the profitability of each sale. Furthermore, by encouraging customer loyalty, these financial packages will help secure future upgrades and new deployments.

This launch will entitle Alcatel-Lucent’s premium and expert partner customers to a special introductory promotion on the purchase of its Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Office and Alcatel-Lucent OmniPCX Enterprise communications platforms for small, medium and large enterprises, as well as its conferencing and collaboration tool, Alcatel-Lucent My Teamwork.

“GE is the ideal partner to work with for our finance offering,” said Graeme Allan, for Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise activities in UK and Ireland. “Its finance consultants will support our business partners throughout the sales process, while its automated financing process, which will be available through our partner site, will make smaller transactions quick and easy to process.”

“The launch of these finance solutions, working with Alcatel-Lucent, will allow customers to improve their business processes and productivity with Alcatel-Lucent’s leading convergence solutions, without impacting on their cash-flow,” said Lynne Wood at GE. “We’ve worked with Alcatel-Lucent to ensure that the products we’ve designed are competitive and truly beneficial to the business partners, by understanding and specifically meeting the needs of its end-user customers.”
