Microsoft announced a new partnership with ASAP Software, one of the leading software distributors to private and public companies and administrations, to offer and promote Microsoft Financing’s total solutions financing in Europe.
Microsoft Financing provides its customers, through its finance solutions partners, with offers that are both simple and appropriate for financing the purchase of Microsoft technologies, as well as for financing software from other publishers, hardware and IT services. Until June 30th, customers can benefit from the ”buy now… Pay later “ promotion. They only have to pay £50 or €50 per month for the first 6 months, then 30 or 36 regular monthly payements after this.
Furthermore, and for the first time in France, Switzerland and Great Britain, a new financial leasing solution is now available to assist companies in dealing with budgetary, financial and tax constraints.
"We see Microsoft's financing solutions as a real additional lever for companies purchasing their software licenses and, from a more global perspective, their IT technologies," highlights Hervé Jezic, President of ASAP Software in Europe. "Effectively, these solutions provide an answer as much to budgetary issues as to the financing problems that our customers come up against today. The adaptability of Microsoft Financing options is also an asset for corporate customers and SMBs alike."
In promoting the Microsoft Financing offer, Brian Madison, Worldwide General Manager of Microsoft Financing, aligns this launch with a strategic agreement with Microsoft's long-standing partner ASAP Software, "ASAP is forward thinking about the impact that financing can have on customers and how it can help them to purchase their software, hardware, and services. We are very confident in the potential of this partnership"
Hervé Jezic concludes,"Microsoft's financing offers fall perfectly into the framework of our ASAPartnerNet program, and will integrate more specifically our ASAP Financing offer. We are delighted with this agreement with Microsoft Financing."
