New Ingram Micro Financing Options Include Hardware-as-a-Service

Ingram Micro partners are able to offer hardware-as-a-service and hardware-as-a-rental as part of a new program by the Irvine, Calif.-based distributor.

Ingram unveiled the Technology as a Service Program on Wednesday for qualifying Ingram Micro channel partners. The program expands on the $1.1 billion in credit the distributor has extended to U.S.-based channel partners over the last 14 months.

"Our new Technology as a Service options are designed to allow our channel partners to sell an entire technology solution including their own managed services for one monthly fee," said Kelly Carter, executive director of Ingram Micro Financial Services, in a statement.

Options within the program include flexible leasing for bundling IT services and solutions into a consolidated monthly invoice, hardware-as-a-service, hardware-as-a-rental, full or partial funding for recurring revenue model engagements, and end-of-life options. The hardware-as-a-service and hardware-as-a-rental can be applied to either new or refurbished technologies, Ingram Micro said.
