HP Helps Clients Enhance Their Capabilities with Special Financing Offers

LONDON -- HP today announced two special financing offers designed to help businesses deploy the latest technology to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage.

The special offers are provided through HP Financial Services, the company’s leasing and asset management subsidiary. The offers will help clients expand their capabilities and evolve to Instant-On Enterprises, where everything and everyone is connected. Instant-On Enterprises require IT environments that are flexible, automated and secure, and able to quickly adjust to changing demand.


HP is offering businesses in the United Kingdom and Germany two special financing options on HP back-up storage systems valued at €72,000 (£60,000) or more. Clients may take advantage of a 36-month, zero percent lease rate or 36-month 2.5 percent finance rate. HP expects to extend the offer to clients in additional European nations later in the year.

Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are being offered a 24-month, zero percent finance lease with purchase option on qualifying transactions between €2,000 (£1,800) and €75,000 (£70,000).(1) The Designjet special offer is available in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Belgium. The offer will be booked through HP Financial Services’ local finance partners.

The HP Designjet portfolio offers one of the most diverse families of affordable large-format printing solutions, combining superior quality with time-saving operation and proven reliability. Intended for professional photographers, graphic designers, technical users and print service providers, HP Designjet printers deliver consistent print results every time with quality that is designed to last.

Leasing adds value

Leasing helps businesses conserve capital as they invest in advanced technology solutions that meet their needs today and into the future. HP Financial Services helps customers change the economics of IT by delivering SMBs a full range of flexible financing solutions and life cycle asset management services.

“In today’s business climate, technology is the core of every business,” said Paul Sheeran, vice president and managing director, HP Financial Services, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). “Leasing makes deploying the latest HP technology more affordable and easier on the balance sheet.”

HP Financial Services’ ability to provide and service special offers is enhanced by the company’s new lease desk capabilities, which provides a single point of contact for all customer needs.
