Syscap, the UK’s leading IT finance provider, has today launched its enhanced Partner Portal to assist vendors and resellers to close more deals using the company’s finance facilities as part of strengthening its partner incentive programme.
The online platform provides a fast and easy way for partners to obtain a quote for extended payment 24/7, 365 days a year to enable them to be more proactive in answering customer queries. Mobile responsiveness has also been improved to assist time-pressured sales people to obtain quotes on the move. By providing an instant online quote, the Syscap Partner Portal removes the administrative burden on vendor sales staff so they can accelerate their deal cycles and focus more on rewarding value-added tasks.
IT vendors and resellers can manage their own opportunities whilst having complete visibility of every one, from entry date through to current status and historical transactions. All proposals in the Partner Portal are fully supported by Syscap’s dedicated partner account management team who are on hand to guide partners throughout every stage of the sales process.
The user-friendly platform’s latest version contains over 100 functionality improvements which have been developed in direct response to feedback from Syscap’s partners following a rigorous testing period.
These include the addition of new quick and full quote templates and advanced search capabilities to speed-up the quoting process, in addition to simplifying document uploads. The portal now provides comprehensive on screen tips and training videos alongside a breakdown of the different types of terms they can offer which are easy to understand, even to non finance sales people.
Philip White, Managing Director of Syscap, comments, “Syscap has a long history in helping its channel partners grow their business. This extends to allowing them to expand through investment in assets and new technologies, to funding short term troughs in cash flow which are common as they move to models such as SaaS.
“Our improved Partner Portal makes it effortless for our partners to introduce finance as an integral part of their sales process. The latest version includes some impressive new features and is part of our ongoing commitment to use appropriate technology to make doing business with us easy.”
The portal is one of a number of benefits that the company offers under the banner of the Syscap Partner Programme which includes comprehensive training, dedicated account management and a rewards and incentive scheme that awards points for every opportunity presented. With an added points incentive to support the launch of the new portal, Syscap is confident of attracting more channel partners to join its programme.
White adds, “The significant enhancements we have introduced to our Partner Programme are the culmination of intense dialogue with our staff and partner communities. Our close working relationship, coupled with our ability to support our partners as well as their end user customers, differentiates us from our competitors and cements our position as the leading IT channel finance specialist.”
