AUG 26, 2019 - 6:40 am
Pinnaca partnered with GreatAmerica Financial Services to offer Pinnaca’s U.S.-based customers and partners new financing options. GreatAmerica will help Pinnaca customers acquire new technology and bundle hardware, software and cloud visual collaboration, and unified communications (UC) products and services into a single monthly payment through the AV as a Service program.
Pinnaca’s global managed services support AV integrators, videoconferencing solutions providers, and enterprise customers with 24/7 help desk support, monitoring, analytics and reporting. These managed services are available for most visual communications applications and platforms and offer the most complete interoperability services available today.
This new program will enable Pinnaca customers to upgrade to newer technologies, control IT costs, use capital for revenue generating activity rather than big spends on IT equipment and plan for new technology migrations and budget accordingly.
Some benefits include:
Single invoice solution: bundle equipment, software and services on one invoice.
Flexible billing options: GreatAmerica will bill fixed or variable monthly charges.
Full end-of-term control: control at the end-of-term makes for easy upgrades or refreshes.
Pinnaca CEO Clive Sawkins said, “We are pleased to work with GreatAmerica Financial Services in the US to offer our customers and partners options to acquire new collaboration solutions that can improve their productivity, employee satisfaction and retention, and help their businesses grow. Technology is changing so rapidly, and these new financing programs will offer a migration path to the cloud or new premise-based solutions and managed services without significant cash investment.”
Nick Nielsen of GreatAmerica Financial Services added, “Working with a managed services provider who can offer a complete hardware and service solution is exactly why we created the program, which combines the best attributes of AV as a service and equipment financing. These financing options will enable customers to lessen the burden of heavy capital expenses while still allowing them to provide great technology solutions to their end-users through a comprehensive solution provider like Pinnaca.”
