IT, network and identity management solutions company NEC Corporation of America announced it is rolling out new financing initiatives in the U.S. NEC said is looking to make the purchasing decision easier by taking the immediate economic strain off the customer while allowing them to meet current business needs. Until the end of 2009, NEC is offering eligible organizations their choice of zero percent financing until 2012 or no payments for 120 days on eligible NEC Dynamic IT Infrastructure products.
More than ever, IT is being asked to deliver more with less and is struggling to control expenses," said NEC's senior vice president for IT platforms and solutions Dave Davenport. "As a global, 100-year-old company with more than $40 billion in annual revenues, we have a strong financing arm to help our customers achieve their IT goals in innovative ways."
One program offers zero percent financing for a 36-month fair market value purchase option lease on NEC's HYDRAstor backup and archive grid storage, D-Series SAN storage, 300-series Fault Tolerant servers, SigmaBlade servers, Rack servers and A1160 enterprise Intel Xeon processor-based servers. NEC is able to offer these financing options through NEC Financial Services, LLC, a firm dedicated to providing financing and leasing services to customers in the U.S.
The second program offers no money down and no payments for 120 days, with 40 monthly lease payments on NEC's HYDRAstor backup and archive grid storage, D-Series SAN storage, 300-series Fault Tolerant servers, SigmaBlade servers, Rack servers and A1160 enterprise Intel Xeon processor-based servers. These finance options are available to all eligible customers across the U.S. who purchase any of the select products through December 31, 2009.
NEC's Dynamic IT Infrastructure is a solution that includes servers, storage, virtual desktop solutions, and system software that the company said provides an ideal platform for virtualization, consolidation and business continuity, particularly in the areas of physical security, law enforcement, emergency response, travel and entertainment, education, high performance computing, and business.
Herschel Salan, vice president and general manager of NEC Financial Services, said NEC's reputation for innovation expands beyond their technology. "We are continually looking for new ways to bring our premier IT solutions to our growing customer base," he said. "And during these difficult economic times we want as many companies as possible to experience the value that NEC has to offer. These financing programs make it easier for NEC customers to do that."
