- Cisco Capital Financing. Unlike using a bank to finance an IT project, Cisco Capital Financing is closely aligned with the Cisco technology teams and offers terms that reflect an understanding of the business IT sales pipeline. Besides offering a low interest, Cisco Capital Financing provides other partner incentives, such as Open Pay, a more responsive way to acquire Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) solutions and select converged-infrastructure storage solutions to meet both anticipated and unanticipated demand spikes.
From fair market value leases to full payout leases to loans to lifecycle financing, Cisco Capital Financing has a variety of options that can help partners close more deals. For example, right now they’re offering a deal where your customers receive 0% financing over three years. Additionally, there’s a special Cisco Easy Pay for Nexus 9k incentive where customers pay only 90% of the hardware purchase price and 100% of the software and services (plus a max of 70% of the bill of materials). And at the end of the term, customers can return the hardware, refresh it or purchase it for 10% of the original purchase price.

- Cisco Sales incentives. Allowing potential customers to try equipment—or see a solution running live in their environment—is one of the best ways to win a deal. Why not increase your chances of closing the deal and get rewarded from Ingram Micro and Cisco at the same time? Our most recent incentive (running Jan. 1 to July 27, 2018) helps partners turn Umbrella, Spark and Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) into rewards. For example, if a partner closed $10,000 of Umbrella, Spark or CMX business during the incentive period, they’d earn 2,000 Go Points, which partners can spend on a range of business and lifestyle rewards. For more details about Go Points, click here, and be sure to check out the latest Cisco trials, promotions and incentives here.
