Syscap now operates UK’s largest independent IT finance programme by membership
London, 9th September 2015 – Compliance software vendor Ideagen has become a Select level partner and the latest addition to Syscap’s partner programme. Ideagen will now be able to use Syscap’s financing to offer its own customers more flexible subscription based payment terms, while ensuring that it is still paid at time of sale. As the UK’s leading independent finance provider for IT, Syscap’s programme now features 13 of the UK’s top software vendors and over 250 IT resellers as partners, making it the UK’s largest independent IT finance programme by membership.
Ideagen is a leading provider of enterprise governance, risk and compliance software and healthcare solutions, which enable organisations working in highly regulated industries to meet their quality compliance standards. Ideagen will use Syscap’s finance service to provide its customers with financial solutions that can balance payment against risk.
As a partner Ideagen will benefit from dedicated Syscap account management, training for its sales team, and access to an online quoting tool to ensure deals aren’t delayed when waiting for a credit decision.
Ben Dorks, sales and marketing director at Ideagen, comments, “Our customers operate in an environment where IT issues can have significant consequences. Being able to offer clients flexibility and security of payment terms is vital for them to ensure that they have the best technology available to them. We evaluated a number of suppliers but it was Syscap’s experience in providing financing solutions for software and services that set it apart from its competitors. Its level of interaction and support to our 60 plus sales team along with its online portal means that it’s easy for us to access solutions fit for our customer needs at any time.”
Philip White, managing director, at Syscap adds, “We’ve invested heavily in our IT channel programme over the last 12 months and we continue to see this attract leading vendors and resellers. The channel is increasingly focused on the need to offer customers flexible financing options in today’s cloud based world. Using finance IT vendors are able to sell up to 30% more by removing the barriers often placed by budget restrictions. Ideagen increases our footprint in the public sector too, where we are already engaged through the likes of Softcat and Advanced Computer Software. I am delighted to welcome Ideagen on board and look forward to a long and mutually productive relationship.”
Syscap has witnessed rapid growth in its IT channel partner programme that was re-launched in April this year. This growth highlights the increasing trend by resellers and ISVs to offer their own customers the OPEX payment model that typically comes with cloud services. Resellers are also increasingly turning to providers like Syscap for finance support to fund new assets required to support this growth such as datacenters, new premises and other infrastructure.
