Here's one we didn't see coming. Cisco Capital SM on Monday announced a three-year, zero-percent financing offer for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the U.S.
Cisco said the financing offer applies to all Cisco products and services from $1,000 up to $250,000 as a way to "help businesses adopt state-of-the-art Cisco solutions quickly and easily."
"At a time when capital budgets are limited, our ability to provide a variety of financing options can help our customers acquire the technology they need to boost productivity and distance themselves from their competition, especially as the economy recovers," said Kris Snow, president, Cisco Capital.
In addition to the already favorable terms, Cisco said that customers who purchase at least one Small Business Architecture (SBA) may also be eligible for a three-month payment deferral.
