Financing used to be considered a last resort for urgent equipment and software acquisitions. For some customers, it’s still something to avoid, if they can help it. But financing should be a first choice when figuring out how to fund equipment and software purchases. There are lots of reasons why, but most of them boil down to this: financing gives businesses flexibility by making more cash available for other uses. It allows businesses to get the equipment and software they need to implement their best ideas without tying them down when new ideas come up. Financing is leverage and leverage is a good thing for businesses looking for an edge in a hyper competitive marketplace.
