The Hewlett Packard Enterprise he said offers more than $ XNUMX billion in funding to help its clients face financial challenges stemming from its crisis COVID-19, συμπεριλαμβανομένων των ταμειακών ροών ή των ζητημάτων ρευστότητας.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is also introducing new initiatives, including a Payment Relief Program to help its customers acquire new technology and alleviate some of the financial pressure created by the uncertain climate.
The $ XNUMX billion in Hewlett Packard Enterprise funding will be implemented to help its customers ensure the continuity of their businesses and adapt to the current environment, addressing new technological financing needs and transforming their IT infrastructure into new sources of capital.
In addition, through the new Payment Relief Program, HPE customers can acquire the technology they need today and pay only 1% of the total value of their contract each month for the first eight months, deferring over 90% of the cost for 2021. This can be a safety net that will help many companies to properly manage the financial impact of COVID-19 the next months. From 2021, each monthly payment will be approximately equal to 3,3% of the total contract value.
"This is a difficult time to run a business. "Today more than ever, IT executives and CFOs play a central role in ensuring financial health by continuing to operate normally," said Irv Rothman, President and CEO of HPE Financial Services. "At HPE Financial Services, we are committed to helping businesses prioritize and providing them with concrete solutions so they can move forward."
Many businesses today are in dire need of maintaining cash flow, deferring or reducing their costs, and easing the pressure on their executives as well as delivery delays. "During this crisis, companies need help regardless of the size of the business or the industry itself.
Η IDC συστήνει ότι οι οργανισμοί πρέπει να εστιάσουν σε δύο άμεσες ανάγκες: τη διατήρηση του κεφαλαίου τους και τη χρήση ευέλικτων επιλογών πληρωμής όπως η μίσθωση ή η «as-a-service» κάλυψη των έκτακτων αναγκών τους με περιορισμένο οικονομικό αντίκτυπο», αναφέρει η Susan Middleton, Διευθύντρια Έρευνας, Flexible Consumption and Financing Strategies της IDC, για την IT υποδομή. «Αφιερώνοντας 2 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια σε χρηματοδότηση και αξιοποιώντας το ευρύ χαρτοφυλάκιο των ευέλικτων λύσεων πληρωμών, η HPE θα βοηθήσει τους επικεφαλής των επιχειρήσεων να κατορθώσουν να περιορίσουν τον αντίκτυπο του COVID-19 στις αγορές τους».
HPE is developing a number of programs designed to address these priorities:
Creating cash from existing assets
HPE helps its customers unlock value from their own technology by converting existing, proprietary IT resources into capital that can be used to purchase new, upgraded technology. This growing capital resource can help close the IT spending gap or give its customers the flexibility to support other parts of their business. HPE can also acquire newer generation technology that is ultimately not necessary for the customer. Over the past two years, HPE has returned more than $ 642 million to its customers this way.
Postponement or reduction of expenses
In addition to HPE's payment mitigation program, the team is activating a payment structure with a 90-day delay to facilitate the "tight" budgets of its customers. This deferred payment option is available in new technology markets and is suitable for a wide range of HPE hardware and selected software, software devices, services and installation packages.
Correspondence of payments - production
HPE offers its customers a step-by-step program that enables them to acquire computing power and storage capacity, with the flexibility to configure and test systems before paying. In this way, HPE customers can continue their core business without the constraints of the current crisis on their budget cycle or implementation schedules. The development schedule can be extended to 12 months.
Mitigating production capacity pressure or delivery delays
Hewlett Packard Enterprise offers certified state-of-the-art technology. A complete portfolio of data center equipment, such as supply of parts, components, sub-assemblies, feature upgrades or even entire systems, are available either standardized or tailored to the budget and occasion of each customer. This technology meets HPE OEM standards and comes with a standard 30-day warranty, which is suitable for additional maintenance and support from HPE.
Offer short-term leases
Many customers face a challenge regarding the pressure on their executives or delays in their deliveries. The most common example is companies that are not ready for work from home and need technology in order to strengthen teleworking. HPE can help them by renting their own technology from three to twelve months and new computers for twelve months. This technology is factory tailored to customer specifications, is available under warranty and is suitable for supporting HPE Pointnext services.
"Almost all companies are looking for help right now. "Now more than ever, productivity and telework support are paramount," said Ashley Penner, CEO of Powerland. "Using HPE's certified technology ownership, Powerland is able to quickly provide the necessary technology for healthcare and education to its customers. "Cooperation with HPE is invaluable."
