Cisco extends SME financing initiative

Cisco has today announced it is extending its 0% financing offer for SME customers in Europe to include all its unified communications and network technologies.


The networking supplier also added several new bits of kit to its SME portfolio, including network security and collaboration tools.

In addition, Cisco has set up a "profitability framework", which it claims will help channel partners build profitable practices around its small business portfolio.

The framework includes new Partner Development Fund (PDF) tracks and new Small Business PDF that provides a quarterly sales-based stipend to qualifying resellers, and new deal registration and programme intelligence tools.

Cisco vice-president of worldwide small business sales, Andrew Sage, said the new initiatives would "help channel partners build and sustain a profitable small business practice".

The updates to the programme build on a series of enhancements originally announced at Cisco's Partner Summit in June.
