Under the terms of the agreement, Syscap will partner with IT Lab to develop bespoke IT finance solutions for IT Lab clients including offering flexible commercial options for investment in technology solutions and services.
IT Lab is one of the largest technology and managed services providers in the UK, with over 400 staff and 850 clients. Syscap’s innovative approach to financing solutions aligns well to IT Lab’s strategic approach to helping clients navigate the fast-evolving technology landscape.

IT Lab joins UK’s premier IT finance partner programme
Syscap’s award-winning finance programme has over 900 partners, including mainstream IT software vendors, resellers, distributors and cloud infrastructure providers. As a partner, IT Lab will benefit from Syscap’s dedicated account management and joint marketing engagement services, comprehensive training and a rewards and incentive scheme that awards points for every opportunity presented.
IT Lab’s sales and account management team have also been given access to Syscap’s Partner Portal to help them accelerate their deal cycles and be more proactive in answering customer queries. The online platform provides a fast and easy way for partners to obtain a quote for payment, removing administrative burdens to ensure deals aren’t delayed when waiting for a credit decision.
Helping clients overcome budget restraints
Dave Mezher, CFO at IT Lab, comments, “We are very excited by our ongoing growth as a business but also by our developing relationship with Syscap. Like IT Lab, Syscap create individually tailored solutions for its clients which are focused on their business objectives which made partnering with them a very obvious choice.
“Being able to combine hardware, software and IT support and maintenance services into one flexible, finance package is a compelling proposition for our customers and will help to overcome budget and financial hurdles and drive other buyer behaviours.”
Steve Deutsch, Chief Executive of Syscap, says, “Syscap is unique in being able to fund a wider range of products and services through our comprehensive payment over time offerings. This ensures our partners do not have to bother with multiple companies in order to put together a total finance solution. This is particularly relevant when you consider a typical large scale IT project could have as many as 15 suppliers or components.”
“We are delighted to be IT Lab’s exclusive finance provider of choice and are looking forward to building on the strong initial momentum that our partnership has generated.”
Syscap has offered tailored financial solutions and support to IT software vendors, resellers and distributors for over 25 years. Its partners include Autodesk, Infor, Sage, QBS Group and Softcat.
On 3 October 2017, Syscap was crowned ‘Vendor Specialist of the Year’ at Leasing World’s annual awards for the second year running.
