Tech Data has added HPE Financial Services (HPEFS) as a funding partner to its Tech-as-a-Service (TaaS) offering.

The broadliner’s TaaS solution works with multiple funding partners, including banks and credit providers, to offer a competitive range of financing options to partners seeking to expand their subscription offerings.

Partners can use Tech Data’s subscription builder to bundle hardware, software, and services from multiple vendors into one solution and offer it in the form of a subscription to their end customers. The TaaS subscription builder is also available as a white-label solution for partners.

The addition of HPEFS to the offering provides an array of funding conditions that make as-a-service models more accessible to SMB partners, including lower minimal deal size, contract duration terms ranging from 12 to 60 months, and more flexible minimum hardware requirements.

Roman Rudolf, Vice President of Strategy and Services at Tech Data, stated:

This is an expansion of a long-established and strong relationship between HPEFS and Tech Data. We are particularly excited to help SMB partners to accelerate their adoption of as-a-service subscription models.

“HPEFS’s deep IT market knowledge means they are already familiar with many partners in our customer base which will enable greater agility in the onboarding and approval process”

“With TaaS, partners can enjoy a fully digitalised experience with instant automated credit checks and personalised quotes, delivered in minutes. Tech Data is strategically committed to developing a compelling services offering and enhanced digital experience to help our partners to drive their transformation from outright asset purchase to subscription-based models.”

Patrick Leoni, Director, Channel, HPEFS, EMEA&APJ, added: “Tech Data’s TaaS B2B is a leading offering on the market and Tech Data is helping resellers to meet the customer´s demand for flexible solutions. At HPEFS we share the same focus on resellers and customer business outcome on their IT consumption journey.”
