(Cedar Rapids, IA) – GreatAmerica Financial Services announced the release today of Life-Cycle FinancingSM. Working alongside Cisco, this new financing product is designed to help Managed Service Providers (MSP) add service-related options to their hardware sales. Life-Cycle Financing bundles a complete, customer-centric solution that would have previously spread the transaction over multiple agreements and invoices.
“Working with GreatAmerica and Cisco over the years, we have offered our clients a streamlined approach to consolidating most of our clients’ IT expenses, similar to what Life-Cycle Financing will provide to the MSP community” said Chad Paalman, a member of the Cisco Advisory Board and CEO of NuWave Technology Partners. “This program will help their MSP partners be more competitive and win more often!”
GreatAmerica is providing Life-Cycle Financing to eligible Managed Service Providers in the U.S. who are registered to sell Cisco products.
“This powerful sales enablement tool is the soul of convenience for MSP customers who want a streamlined, easy-to-understand way of providing the technology they need,” said Wil Meggers, GreatAmerica General Manager and Vice President for the Unified Communications & IT division. “While Life-Cycle Financing is designed for Cisco resellers who incorporate Cisco and Meraki products into their product stack, it accommodates MSPs who rely on multi-line products for their solutions.”
Life-Cycle Financing enhances the proposal process by helping MSPs quote their offer using MSP quoting tools, such as ConnectWise Sell® and QuoteWerks®. Life-Cycle Financing also allows Cisco resellers to customize their program with options to enhance their branding, cash flow, asset tracking, and managed services billing.
“End users today expect their MSP partner to take complexity and make it simple,” added Meggers. “The Life-Cycle Financing program does just that. By bundling hardware, software, subscriptions, and managed services into a single invoice, the Cisco MSP community has the power to craft their very own As-A-Service model.”
