...and how financing can help
Whatever the size of your IT budget, the relentless pressure to do more with less will continue. Now it's a good time to take a step back and consider how a fresh approach to funding IT investments could help.
IBM Global Financing can help increase the spending power of your IT budget and at the same time help your company conserve cash. Here are three ways we help you get the most out of your 2013 IT budget:
- Accelerate project breakeven: Use financing to fund the initial investment hurdle. With spending matched to anticipated benefits, projects rapidly become cash flow positive. Transform project economics to meet internal investment criteria.
- Manage IT transitions: Consolidate & optimise your servers and storage. Save on maintenance, support and operations costs. We can fund your move from capital expense to operating expense; support your green IT strategy ; inject cash with sale and lease back of equipment you'll keep; and offer compliant disposal of assets you'll retire.
- Stretch your budget: With a lease, you only pay for what you use as you use it. IDC estimates financing can expand the purchasing power of your budget by some 20%. Flexible end of lease options allow you to take just-in-time decisions about equipment replacement and transfer risk to IBM Global Financing
With the alternatives we put at your disposal, IBM Global Financing enables better decisions at every stage of the IT lifecycle: from initial planning to eventual disposal. Our customized financing can help you exploit new opportunities, accelerate business transformation, and lower your costs.
