René Stuiver, Tech Data’s Finance Solutions lead for Europe explains more about how the distributor can help partners bridge the finance gap and continue to develop their businesses through effective cash management options.
At Tech Data, we see ourselves as a vital link in the technology supply chain. We are focused on providing access to the best technology and helping to guide and support the channel in areas such as training, enablement, support and financing. It is this last point that I want to take a moment to explain some of the things my team and I are working on to help the channel.
Support with Finance Solutions
At a challenging time for our economies, organisations can avoid tying up valuable cash and capital in IT projects if it is needed elsewhere in the organisation. In fact, Tech Data can help organisations free up much needed cash by offering leases on IT equipment the partner organisation might already own.
We understand the importance of funding, which enables partners to drive strategic investments, maintain product supply and serve customers. In the current market conditions, most companies will review their upcoming investments and may be struggling to maintain their business plans. Our local Finance Solutions representatives continue to work closely with partners, in order to support them with the right finance solutions, including lease and loan options, which have become a crucial alternative for IT investments as they offer pay in instalments over a manageable period
Ultimately, we’re concentrating on doing everything we can to help channel partners and their customers maintain liquidity for as long as possible through this current uncertainty.
