Almo Pro A/V Adds AVaaS Program for AV Integrators

almo avaas integratorsAlmo Pro A/V is kicking off 2020 with its newest service offering, Almo AV-As-A-Service (AVaas) Financial Solutions. Through the backing of Almo Pro A/V in the form of flexible and competitive finance and leasing options, reseller partners now have a more competitive advantage so they may pursue more significant, long-term installation opportunities and provide customers with the latest technology, job site labor services and recycling/replacement options.

On Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020, Almo is hosting the free webinar, “Almo Financial Solutions — Success Through Financing” to unpack the details about the new service offering, including the types of lease/finance options and the process to follow. Register here.

Almo AVaas Financial Solutions will also exhibit at the Almo E4 Experience coming to Santa Clara, California on March 13 and Washington, D.C., on April 3.

According to the Leasing & Financing Survey, Technology Migrations and Economy, IDC, 78.8 percent of respondents say the availability of financing impacts the decision of where they buy from.

Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V, explained, “Integrators and resellers sometimes need flexible options to finance larger projects and grow their businesses. At the same time, their customers don’t want to buy hardware that becomes obsolete in a few years.” He continued, “Through our new AVaas offering, the biggest benefit to the dealer is managed cash flow and the ability to get paid upfront while offering the end user one monthly payment. This financing enables our partners to close deals, accelerate buying decisions, improve schedule replacement cycles and much more. When the end-user customer uses AVaaS, they can apply operating funds instead of capital expenditures. Because they no longer own the hardware, they can easily replace it when the technology changes.”

Taylor added that when it’s time for that technology refresh, the reseller who did the original installation is in a perfect position to earn that business again. Almo AVaas Financial Solutions also allows partners to offer end users lease-to-own, recycling and equipment removal options.

Through this new service, Almo partners can now:

  • Manage cash flow: Ensure matching the timing of payments with the benefits the technology is providing the organization
  • Bundle the total solution: Hardware, software, support and services can be combined into one monthly fee for the end user
  • Avoid technological obsolescence: Refresh to the new technology that matches future business needs while avoiding expensive support renewals
  • Conserve capital: Use cash for other strategic, better-returning investment
  • Increase purchasing Power: Through the financing option, the needed solution is provided despite budget limitations
  • Track and manage assets: The asset management system tracks assets, leases and maintenance contracts
  • Customized to needs: Traditional and customized financing solutions available to meet specific project requirements
