Sometimes all that stands between you and closing an amazing deal is an insurmountable financial obstacle. Wouldn’t it be great if there were creative financing solutions out there that could help businesses get over those annoying financial hurdles? Thankfully, Ingram Micro Financial Solutions does just that by providing innovative financial solutions to keep businesses moving no matter what.
One recent example involved our partner, MCR Health, a leading not-for-profit healthcare provider delivering high-quality care to families throughout Florida. MCR Health was facing the difficult prospect of having to pay upfront for professional services. Mike Von Zweck, account executive at Sophos and Chasity Noel, sales and marketing director at Bayside Solutions, Inc., identified early on the fact that MCR Health would prefer to pay their balance in 3 annual installments.
Mike and Chasity immediately contacted Ingram Micro Flexible Payment Solutions (FPS) to find a solution
. What Ingram Micro FPS came up with was a plan that would see MCR Health make 3 annual payments at 0% financing (same as cash), and they were able to get credit approval for MCR within just 4 hours. Instead of using a traditional finance agreement, Ingram Micro FPS created what’s known as a “PO supplement” which aligned with the PO MCR Health already submitted—and this made transacting the deal easier. In the end, Mike and Chasity orchestrated a 3-year deal that benefited everyone involved.
The problem many customers face is simply not knowing that FPS can deliver creative financing and flexible payment options to meet their exact needs. At Ingram Micro, we're doing a lot to support you and your customers during these challenging times. For one thing, we're extending $100 million in additional credit to our channel partners. We’re also helping businesses provide customers with flexible payment terms of up to 60 months.
At the end of the day, it’s all about getting your customers to say “yes” sooner. Ingram Micro’s Financial Solutions and Flexible Payment Solutions are ready to help you close deals (of any size) faster.
