E-Commerce tech giant Ebuyer.com is strengthening its support to UK SMEs by offering lease options to its clients. The decision comes after the online retailer reached an agreement with Shire Leasing Plc (Shire), the UK’s largest privately owned independent finance house specialising in small ticket asset finance for business critical equipment in the B2B market place.
Vincenzo Scalzone, Sales Director at Shire said “I am delighted to work alongside Ebuyer.com. Not only does it give them the opportunity to expand further in the on-line B2B sector, it also connects with our strategy to develop our presence in the IT industry and supports British Businesses gain the equipment they need to grow.”
Ebuyer.com will use this new finance channel to further grow within the B2B sector, by offering their customer base a manageable payment option over an agreed term. The new initiative has many benefits to support SMEs with their IT strategy. The fixed rate repayments allow for easier budgeting and hedge against future interest rate rises. With the speed of new technology development always putting SMEs under pressure, the new lease options offered by Ebuyer.com can provide a cost effective method of staying at the leading edge to gain and maintain competitive advantage.
Amber Smith, Head of Sales at Ebuyer.com, said “The B2B sector of our operation is growing rapidly. Giving our customers the option to lease the essential tools they need to run their company will increase our ability to be the virtual IT procurement manager for the UK’s SMEs”.
