Avaya Financial Services (AFS) and Avaya have announce a six-month extension, until the end of September 2010, of their 0% Finance promotion aimed at helping customers invest in the latest technology during the current challenging economic environment.
The list of products qualifying for the offer has also been expanded to include the majority of the former Nortel Enterprise Solutions (NES) portfolio, which takes in award-winning products such as Business Communications Manager (BCM) solutions and the Communication Server 1000 (CS1K).
Overall, the Avaya Financial Services 0% finance promotion is now available on over 90% of the combined Avaya and NES solutions range, meaning that channel partners and distributors can take advantage of an offer that includes no up-front arrangement charges, no hidden costs and 0% finance charges over a period of up to three years.
“In the current economic climate liquidity is the number one concern for many European businesses, making it more difficult for some to justify capital investment even in business-critical technology,” said Paul Fazakerley, AFS European programme director. “Since starting the 0% finance promotion, many companies have told us that its availability is a deciding factor in whether to invest immediately in technology or not.
According to David Labram, Director of Avaya Silver Business Partner, Gemini Communications Ltd., “The 0% finance deal is working really well for us; it is helping customers make quicker decisions which mean quicker sales for us.”
The extended 0% Finance Offer is expected to provide additional support for Avaya Channel Partners and Distributors. “Our Channel partners and distributors now have access to 0% finance for an additional six months and adding former Nortel solutions to this offer allows them to invest with confidence in the Avaya product roadmap vision,” added Jan Lawford, senior director, EMEA Channels, Avaya.
The Avaya 0% Finance Offer is available in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Nordics, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The minimum deal value, depending on the solution, starts at $3,500 US dollars.
