Many small business owners feel pinched by the current lending environment in the US, but still need month-to-month payment plans to put computers into the hands of their employees. That's why UpgradeUSA is here.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 27, 2013
UpgradeUSA, a leading online company focused on helping people build credit through laptop payment plans, today announced a new program designed to help small business owners afford the technology they need while helping them build for the future.
“Many small business owners feel pinched by the current lending environment in the US, but still need month-to-month payment plans to put computers into the hands of their employees,” said Jon Weisblatt, Founder & CEO of UpgradeUSA. “I can personally relate to the cash-flow and credit needs of small business owners, and we are pleased to offer them a service that can really help in a number of ways.”
The UpgradeUSA laptop payment program comes with a unique added benefit for small business owners: personal credit-building with all three US credit bureaus. The program is set up to help business owners build personal credit with every laptop payment their business makes. This is important because the personal credit history of the owner of the business is an important consideration when seeking a bank loan. Having a history of making consistent payments over time can help ensure that small business owners can build the credit they will need to help their business grow.
Many different types of small business owners are benefitting from the UpgradeUSA program, including software companies, media production companies, agencies, creatives, REALTORs, and more.
UpgradeUSA offers three major benefits to small businesses and small business owners:
- Quality laptops, online convenience. The UpgradeUSA program offers quick decisions and easy payment plans, with a variety of computers to choose from. The company carries products from leading brands such as Apple, Dell, HP, Samsung, and more. Inventory changes frequently and current product offerings can be found at UpgradeUSA.com.
- Monthly payment plans to better manage expenses. Small businesses are often in a position of having capital expense requirements, such as computers for employees, but have insufficient capital to afford the entire cost up-front. UpgradeUSA offers a leasing service with low monthly payments to customers. If business owners find that they need fewer laptops than they had planned, they can return the laptops to UpgradeUSA after a few months with no penalty, or pay it off entirely at a lower price.
- Personal credit building for small business owners. By reporting every laptop payment to all three US credit bureaus every month, UpgradeUSA’s online laptop payment plans help small business owners take a critical step towards building good personal credit. This can be critically important for many small business owners because of current bank lending requirements.
Consumers who visit UpgradeUSA.com will find a variety of new and factory-refurbished computers made by the world’s leading technology companies, and many models come with Windows 8, the newest operating system from Microsoft.
