Vendor finance

Mutual benefits for you and your customer

    The leasing advantage

    In a competitive world, your customers need the financial flexibility to seize business opportunities when they arise. With leasing, you give them access to the latest equipment without tying up their lines of credit. Add to that the convenience of a one-stop shop and easy payments, and you have a highly attractive value proposition that can only strengthen your relationship with your customers and make closing deals that much easier. And once your deal is closed, you also benefit directly. Because leasing means locking in your customer for more upgrade business, locking out the competition and enhancing your cash flow.

    What’s in it for you?

    Easier closing of sales

    Leasing is a financial solution customers want. Our lease products are fast, flexible and enable you to get your customer the equipment they need, when they need it. Removing financial hurdles and accelerating the sales process.

    Customer retention

    Leasing is the perfect answer to customers who say they lack budget approvals or are losing budget. You can respond with flexible financial tools that lock in your customer and lock out the competition.

    Enhanced sales and margin

    Offering a financial solution early in the sales process lets you break down costs into periodic payments, making the initial investment less daunting. This in turn reduces margin pressures, as there is less focus on the equipment price.

    Opportunities for extension

    Offering leasing maximizes your opportunities to sell both a more complete solution and additional equipment.

    Flexibility

    Your local DLL contact will help you select and structure the payment plan that best fits your customer’s budget and needs.

    Dedicated support

    Offload the administrative hassle. Once you’ve identified a leasing prospect, your DLL contact will help you process the lease quickly and easily.

    What’s in it for your customer?

    Purchase or renewal options

    At the end of the term, your customer can choose to purchase their equipment, upgrade to new equipment or continue financing with substantial savings.

    Conservation of capital budget

    Since their money isn’t tied up in equipment costs, your customer is free to spend it on other items such as supplies, personnel and training.

    Fixed payments

    By locking in payments now, your customers can avoid inflation risk in the future. Fixed monthly payments also help your customer better budget throughout the term of the agreement.

    100% financing

    ‘Soft’ costs such as service, software and training can also be included in the monthly payment.

    Longer terms

    While most banks only lend over the short-term (typically 12-36 months), DLL offers financing terms ranging from 12 to 72 months.

    Keep up with technology

    Add-ons and upgrades ensure your customer will always have state-of-the-art equipment and systems. Equipment can also be replaced with the latest technology at any time during the contract term.
