Today, HP announced two new finance partner endorsements aimed at equipping US channel partners and customers with innovative, flexible payment solutions for the small and mid-sized business (SMB) segment. These endorsements include LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc. (“LEAF”) for SMB and GreatAmerica Financial Services® for Amplify Power Services Print partners.
With today’s announcement, HP continues to demonstrate its commitment to the SMB customer segment and our focus on helping channel partners grow their SMB business. Payment solutions for SMB customers are critical in enabling them to secure the hardware solutions they need to run their business.
“In the face of rising interest rates and a challenging macro-economic environment, liquidity is being squeezed for SMBs, creating a greater need for capital. These finance partner endorsements will provide US channel partners with additional options in their sales toolkit as they seek to drive growth in these uncertain times,” said Deborah Baker, VP, Head of Global Payment Solutions at HP.
LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc.
LEAF brings extensive experience in technology leasing and financing for the SMB segment and is aligned with some of HP’s largest partners. LEAF will enable HP to provide market-leading payment solutions to SMB end customers through the US channel. LEAF’s full-service financing capabilities allow partners to bundle a complete solution, including hardware, software, maintenance, and services, into a single payment plan enabling partners to become the customer’s full solution provider. www.LEAFnow.com
“In today’s marketplace especially, it’s important that finance providers go beyond simply offering off-the shelf finance options to bring the kind of tools, resources, and end-to-end support needed to develop and capture new opportunities, as well as drive additional revenue and enhanced loyalty with established customers,” said Miles Herman, LEAF CEO. “We look forward to helping HP SMB customers (less than 1000 employees) continue to push forward amid economic turbulence and position for greater competitive strength for years to come.”
