The assumption that MSPs do not influence or sell product to their clients is simply a falsehood that must be finally laid to rest. By leveraging this new leasing program MSPs will be able to provide professional grade managed services and offer their clients the latest hardware and software tools to better run their businesses.
Chico, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2008
MSPAlliance, the International Association of Managed Service Providers, today announced the launch of a new Hardware as a Service/Leasing program for Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

"The MSPAlliance Managed Services Leasing Program™ signifies another big step forward for MSPs," said Charles Weaver, president of MSPAlliance. "The assumption that MSPs do not influence or sell product to their clients is simply a falsehood that must be finally laid to rest. By leveraging this new leasing program MSPs will be able to provide professional grade managed services and offer their clients the latest hardware and software tools to better run their businesses."

"Having a simple, competitive, convenient financing option available to the customers of MSP's is a time honored way to grow sales. I've always been a strong advocate of the MSP business model and Varilease is ideally suited to delivering the best value for MSP's and their customers by seamlessly integrating the equipment and software acquisition process into the overall customer relationship" said Frank Latourell, Senior Business Development Manager of Varilease. "Our combination of flexibility, very prompt and professional application processing and focus on market driven solutions will delight MSPAlliance members."
"Waypoint Solutions Group recently closed a deal with a new company entity that had no financial history and needed over $70,000 USD in equipment for their infrastructure. We were turned down by over 10 agencies before we used the MSPAlliance Managed Services Leasing Program," said Dan Wilson, president of Waypoint Solutions Group. "Frank Latourell worked with us and our client and established a competitive market lease agreement that made our new clients happy and made us look very good. After dealing with Frank and the MSPAlliance Leasing Program team I will always turn to them when we are in need of leasing arrangements for our client."
In order to use the leasing program MSPs must be a member in good standing with the MSPAlliance.
