Dell today announced the launch of Dell Financial Services India (DFS), a leasing and financing program for small, medium and large commercial businesses and public organizations in India, to be provided by Macquarie Equipment Finance, the leasing arm of the Sydney-based Macquarie Group, a leading international provider of banking and investment services. The program will help customers preserve capital, maximize IT investments and drive innovation.
DFS is the first financing program for Dell in India to address the comprehensive financing needs of our enterprise, public sector and small and medium business customers by providing a dedicated sales team to structure the most effective financing arrangements available in the marketplace.
Responding to customer needs, Dell offers outstanding financing options including:
- Low interest rate and promotional financing on key Dell products;
- Asset-management solutions to maximize the technology investment throughout the asset lifecycle;
- Comprehensive buy-back & remarketing capabilities;
- Environmentally-safe and regulatory compliant disposal alternatives for retired equipment;
- Online asset management tools; and
- Customized billing for cost allocation.
These features will eliminate many manual, paper-based processes while helping customers transition to web-enabled solutions from placing financing orders and viewing documentation to obtaining reports and other information.
With lease terms from 12-60 months, customers can get the technology they need today and benefit from fixed regular payments.
“Our new financial services offering will provide our business customers another tool with which to scale their operations and make use of technology to help them grow,” said Mahesh Bhalla, general manager of Dell’s Consumer & Small-Medium Business in India. “Macquarie’s expertise in this area, combined with Dell’s existing products and programs, will provide customers with robust technology solutions and structured financing capability.”
“Macquarie is excited about launching the DFS program in India, a new market for us”, said Nicholas Holmes, global head of vendor programs for Macquarie Equipment Finance. “The Dell relationship is strategic for Macquarie and consistent with our focus of providing solutions to premier global vendors in growing and emerging markets.”
