Our finance services

Just as the way organisations deliver their IT services is changing, so too is the way they’re paying for them. Much is made of a shifting trend to fund IT via OpEx, instead of the traditional CapEx approach. The truth is, most organisations take a hybrid finance approach to funding hybrid IT. Since 2009, we’ve been supporting our customers with finance options.

Why Proact?

We don’t just work with the best vendors to deliver and manage technological solutions that drive your organisation’s growth and innovation. We also offer ways for you to afford those solutions. How? By allowing you to finance everything that you need – hardware, software, services and support – via regular monthly or quarterly payments, instead of having to pay upfront.

How our finance services work

A total financing solution

We allow you to finance everything that you need. That means all the services you receive from us – all the consultancy services, managed services and all the support services – as well as all the hardware and software your solution incorporates. With our finance, you don’t have to pay anything upfront. Instead, you pay via regular monthly or quarterly payments.

Avoid technology obsolescence

As you don’t buy any solution upfront, you won’t own any equipment. So not only will you not have to maintain anything, you won’t have to replace anything when it becomes obsolete, either. That will be our responsibility. This gives you the flexibility to upgrade to new technology to match your current and future business needs.

Conserve cash. Preserve credit

Financing with us means you won’t tie your valuable capital up in infrastructure costs. Instead, you’ll be free to use it for different strategic investments or innovative projects. Your cash flow will be better, too. We’ll only charge for your solution after you’ve realised the revenue or productivity benefits, not before, allowing you to reduce risk. Taking advantage of our financing will also mean you don’t use up your lines of credit.

"Off balance sheet" & deferred payments

“Off balance sheet” financing may allow your organisation to stay within capital budget constraints. You have the opportunity to pay for some or all of your IT via an OpEx model, rather than the traditional CapEx one. We also offer payment deferral options, to ensure that acquiring the technology you need is as straightforward and as affordable as possible.

Renewal & purchase options

When you come to the end of your agreed contract/lease/finance term, we very much hope you will want to extend. In this case, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade your equipment, where possible. Should you not wish to extend, you’ll also have the option to return or buy your equipment outright.
