  • 05.04.2011

HP Financial Services and BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions will partner to offer small and mid-size (SMB) business customers a range of financial solutions to help them invest in HP's market-leading technology.

The alliance will launch in UK and France, where BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions will engage directly with HP channel partners promoting financing alternatives for SMB.
HP Financial Services is HP's leasing and lifecycle asset management services subsidiary, offering a full range of financial services solutions. HP Financial Services will continue to serve mid-market and enterprise customers directly.

“Our role is to provide simple payment solutions for the end-user and to help HP channel partners overcome budget-related sales barriers,” says Colin Burnes, Programme Manager for BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions in the United Kingdom. “Many businesses don't realise the benefits of an IT finance-based procurement strategy which can help maintain technology investment, even in the current environment. Our objective is to help HP channel partners grow revenues by sharing our financing expertise and helping them increase customer value.”

As one of the largest business equipment finance companies in Europe, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions will offer innovative financial solutions and dedicated resources to HP channel partners. These include local account management, online credit tools, finance training, documentation support and product specific promotions.
