In today's business environment, the decision is not only WHAT to buy, but also HOW to buy. With increased pressure on budgets, it is more critical than ever to demonstrate cost control and return on investments.

Financing can HELP you:

Access the right solution for your business

Financing is designed to provide you with the freedom to acquire the technology you need to grow your business as well as give you the flexibility to react to changing market needs.

Ease the pressure on your budget and preserve your cash flow

Investing in the right technology without making a large capital expenditure enables you to invest valuable cash in other areas of your business to help drive success.

Plan and Pay for technology and technical support over time

Spreading the cost over time makes budgeting easier. Because your payments are more manageable, you'll know exactly how much you'll be spending and when.

Customers have told us that they want more value for their money, protection for their investments, access to the latest technology, and predictable technology spend. As budgets continue to shrink, IT needs to deliver more capabilities at a lower price point. Companies are tired of "throwing money away" every time you refresh your network, by having to repurchase the software necessary to operate your environment. At the same time, only a small portion of companies are able to adopt the latest technology, either due to budget limitations or the fear of investing in unproven technology. Finally, CFOs are demanding that IT becomes more predictable and consistent with technology spend.

Financing from Cisco Capital provides our customers with predictable payments - supporting your business technology needs on your own terms and timeframe - not the ones dictated by your budget.
