New IT programme for small business

SuccessLease has been designed to enable SMEs to buy IBM and non-IBM technology and services for a complete e-business solution.

It has been made available through IBM Business Partners and other IT Resellers, and uses web-based access in an attempt to deliver convenient financing.

SuccessLease was designed to deliver a ‘one-stop-shop financing service’ to small businesses and can cover any transaction from £750 to £25,000 with terms from 24 to 60 months – while decisions can be given in under an hour.

‘IT financing is a critical tool that enables small businesses to acquire the IT solutions they need to remain competitive, to grow, and to implement new e-business applications, while preserving their other sources of cash,’ said Jeff Smith, Director of IBM Global Financing in the UK.

‘The service enables us to deliver to our customers the IT they need, when they need it, and on a budget plan that suits their wallet,’ he added.

SuccessLease is available for IBM and non-IBM hardware, software and services, giving customers a single point of contact for the whole solution, including financing. Other features include attractive lease rates and quick credit decisions, often in less than an hour, which are executed online.
