Times are changing. The days of super-low interest rates are behind us. And although inflation is improving, it remains high, and other business challenges loom.

Despite it all, though, growth opportunities persist, and payments have never been more important – because payments make equipment more affordable. And the right provider can help you take your opportunities even further.

Here’s a quick checklist of four key attributes to seek in a finance provider:

  1. Are they committed to lending? With many banks pulling back to focus more on deposits than lending, having a lender that is committed to financing your equipment through the economic ebbs and flows is essential.
  2. Are they committed to finding a way forward? Sellers need finance partners that can go beyond an “off-the-shelf” finance structure or policy to find the perfect solution for your customer, every time.
  3. Can they offer unique solutions? Maybe it’s a bundled solution, a ramp-up payment structure, an as-a-service model, or targeted prospecting. Creativity is key.
  4. Do they put your customer first? A simple, straightforward process that delivers great financing and makes customers want to do it all again – that should be the standard.
