GreatAmerica Financial Services Touts Technology Financing at ECS
(SCOTTSDALE, AZ) January 16, 2022 – From the floor of the Executive Connection Summit (ECS) 2022, GreatAmerica Financial Services (GreatAmerica), a founding member of The Consortium, reinforced its commitment to supporting office technology dealers as they evolve beyond print, into services and solutions with its technology financing capabilities. The office equipment leasing company offers a master document with supplements approach to create a way for office technology providers to easily match financing new solutions with their sales process.
GreatAmerica continues to support the expansion of Managed Print Services and workflow solutions, and this approach makes layering in new software, technology, services, and solutions simple as providers increase their value to their customers and serving as total technology solution providers.
According to Jennie Fisher, Vice President and General Manager of GreatAmerica Financial Services, the financing conpany has placed a heavy focus over the past year on new and emerging product lines in order to better support dealers and their evolution. “Many of our customers have moved or are moving beyond output and are now offering adjacent print solutions like VoIP, IT, or software. This brings more into the billing mix and created a need for us to innovate accordingly. We added our single invoice solution 1nVOICE™ at the end of 2020, and our technology financing capabilities marry up to 1nVOICE nicely to create a modern and comprehensive financing and billing solution.”
Offerings like 1nVOICE™ and HaaR® empower technology providers to add in new and emerging office technologies into their agreements with reduced friction, facilitating the combination of various financing options into one monthly invoice.
The Consortium is a collaboration of office technology industry leaders focused on creating new opportunities for the channel by embracing digital transformation, working together and generating ideas that bring true value to the industry.
