Polycom unveils new customer financing options

Nov 05, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Polycom, Inc, a provider of telepresence, video, voice and infrastructure solutions, has introduced a series of new customer financing options that reportedly put UC&C solutions within reach of more customers.

This financing model helps free customers from the limitations of quarterly capital expense budgets, and allows more organizations to implement UC&C solutions that fully meet their needs. Polycom is leveraging Macquarie Equipment Finance's global capabilities to provide customer financing solutions.

In addition, through an arrangement with GE Capital, Polycom is offering its channel partners access to working capital aimed at lessening the burden of inventory carrying costs during customer implementations.

Offered through Polycom Capital, the new customer financing programs take an 'all-in' approach by letting small and medium businesses (SMBs) and enterprises finance their Polycom RealPresence solutions and services, as well as their entire UC&C implementation.

"These new attractive financing options from Polycom Capital put unified communications and video collaboration solutions within reach of nearly any business, and we believe it will help us sell even more of the full product portfolio to our customers," said Eric Brown, Polycom COO and CFO.

"In today's market, we're seeing strong interest from both customers and partners in Polycom Capital. With various payment options and the ability to finance everything maintenance, installation, services, training and even non-Polycom accessories Polycom Capital provides a very compelling value proposition for customers and partners."
