Tech Data backs finance scheme that makes it easier for SMBs to afford HP LaserJet quality

Basingstoke, 04 April 2016 – Tech Data is working with HP Finance to provide a zero-percent offer on HP LaserJet devices that will make it easier for smaller businesses with limited budgets to invest in the latest and best printing technology.

The scheme aims to deliver most of the benefits of a managed print service on a smaller scale. It will include the cost of installation, one set of replacement toner cartridges and warranty cover, and enable the customers to pay in monthly instalments over 36 months. Rather than paying around £5000, plus £2300 in add-ons for an HP Color LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M880z, for example, the customer would pay around £204 per month.

The scheme will work well from a reseller perspective too, as HP Finance will pay the full amount up-front and manage the risk with the customer. Any credit checks will be carried out by HP Finance too. Mike Leary, Print Business Development Executive at Tech Data, believes it could be very popular.

“We receive a lot of enquiries about managed print services on HP printers, but it is not suitable for most small companies. At the same time, these businesses often find it difficult to finance the purchase of a high-quality LaserJet. The HP Finance scheme will provide a simple answer to the dilemma, so we think it could be very popular indeed.”
