Kyocera launches financing solution with introductory offer on colour MFPs
KYOfinance offers fast, flexible finance for channel partners and customers
01 November 2007
Kyocera is delighted to announce KYOfinance, a new finance product that will enable channel partners to offer fast, fully automated and reliable financing, whether customers want to buy, rent or lease. KYOfinance has been developed in conjunction with BNP Paribas Lease Group (BPLG) and is specifically designed to support channel partners offering office hardware solutions. As an introductory offer to KYOfinance any contract that includes a KM-C2525e, a KM-C3232e or a KM-C4035e colour MFP will have repayments deferred until 1st April 2008.
Helping customers to finance their office equipment gives channel partners opportunities to expand their business relationship. Acquiring hardware via a lease plan frees up customers’ capital budgets, presenting opportunities for the servicing dealer to upsell into other areas of the business. It also offers customers the flexibility to upgrade their document imaging fleet whenever their business demands it, generating more business for the dealer.
KYOfinance is designed to be simple to implement. Customers simply sign a KYOfinance contract between themselves and BPLG, the dealer then delivers the equipment to the customer and invoices the finance company. This results in immediate and full payment for every sale made by the reseller.
Tracey Rawling Church, Marketing Director at Kyocera, comments: “This finance product is designed to help our channel partners offer no-hassle finance to their customers. It is specifically tailored for the office equipment market so all-inclusive contracts that take account of hardware, service and consumables are catered for. The introductory offer on contracts that include Kyocera’s recently launched colour MFPs enables customers to defer payment until 1st April, while benefittng from the latest colour MFP technology straightaway.”
In order to facilitate the straightforward creation of the most commonly required contracts, KYOfinance has online credit approval and calculation tools as well as convenient automated processes for the entire financing procedure, resulting in fast and efficient service for customers and a quick sale for servicing dealers.
