Microsoft now offering Small Business financing for software, hardware & services for deals as small as $3,000, starting today! Plus get deferred payments until June 30th!

Hey, Microsoft Partners! Stop losing sales to “I don’t have the budget.” Microsoft® Financing will provide loans for IT solutions that include Microsoft software and they will finance hardware, software (even without a hardware purchase!), and your services. They have reduced the minimum transaction size they will finance in the United States to $3,000, and are offering your customers 90-day deferred payment for any deal that is finalized by June 30, 2006.

By using Microsoft Financing, your customer can pay for the solution on a monthly basis over 36 months, reducing the up-front cost of acquiring the solution and here’s the best part for all of you Microsoft Partners… Not only does your customer get the benefit of having their entire project financed for them with spread payments and a 90 day deferral, you get 100% of your money for the deal within days! No more waiting weeks or months or longer for your money and no more worrying about chasing down payments. Now you can focus on what you do best… Helping Small Businesses take advantage of technology to grow their business!

Oh, and did I mention, the only way your customers can get Microsoft Financing is through you! Attend the Live Meeting on April 3, 2006 at 9:00AM PST or visit the Small Business Specialist website to learn more.

And for those of you in the Seattle area who are attending the Microsoft Small Business Summit live at the Hyatt Bellevue today, I’ll see you there so be sure to say, “Hi.”  For those of you not attending live, you can still sign up to attend any of the sessions over the next 4 days virtually at: http://www.sbsummit.com.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
