Microsoft Financing is Baaaaaaack!

From my MS Partner Territory Manager Suzanne Lavine:

March 9th Update!

 Check out the new webcasts on http://www.microsoftpartnernetwork.com/ site. I just watched 5 min webcast with Allison Watson about online services; short and to the point.

 NEW! Microsoft Financing now has dedicated sales resources in place to support the partner channel.

Microsoft Financing is currently operating under an interim program with DLL (De Lage Landen). Expect to see further announcements in the upcoming weeks on the launch of the new Microsoft Financing US SMS&P program. However, recent improvements have made it easier to leverage Microsoft Financing, including:

 10% minimum MS content requirement on all transactions – no longer a minimum 35% MS content requirement!

 Competitive rates – currently 8.8% on $100k @ 3 years and 10.3% on $50k @ 3 years (valid until March 31, 2010)

 MS Dynamics Enhancement can be financed alone on a 1-year or 3-year loan term

 Total Solution Financing – Microsoft software, hardware, partner services, 3rd party software and sales tax bundled into one convenient monthly payment

Thanks, SuzL.

I'll let you know if the new program works as well with Hardware as a Service as the old program did.

I'm excited to see this option return. We can do 10%.

And thanks to whoever at Microsoft for listening to the channel.
