Why does it make good business sense to offer leasing?

  • Eight out of ten businesses lease equipment
  • Leasing is a total acquisition solution that shortens the sales cycle
  • Customers have come to expect equipment vendors to automatically offer their products on a sale and lease basis
  • When leasing is not offered on a sales proposal, customers assume that you do not have the ability to provide a financing solution, which may limit your future relations with those customers

Why does my customer have to provide additional information to be approved for a lease?
