Almo Professional A/V Launches Almo AV-As-A-Service Financial Solutions - January 27, 2020

Philadelphia, PA — January 27, 2020 — Almo Professional A/V, the Pro A/V industry’s most dynamic distributor and creator of the award-winning E4 Experience, is kicking off 2020 with its newest service offering, Almo AV-As-A-Service (AVaas) Financial Solutions. Through the backing of Almo Pro A/V in the form of flexible and competitive finance and leasing options, reseller partners now have a more competitive advantage so they may pursue larger, long-term installation opportunities and provide customers with the latest technology, job site labor services and recycling/replacement options.

On Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020, Almo is hosting the free webinar, “Almo Financial Solutions – Success Through Financing” to unpack the details about the new service offering, including the types of lease/finance options and the process to follow. Register here.

Almo AVaas Financial Solutions will also exhibit at the Almo E4 Experience coming to Santa Clara on March 13 and Washington D.C. on April 3.

According to the Leasing & Financing Survey, Technology Migrations and Economy, IDC, 78.8 percent of respondents say the availability of financing impacts the decision of where they buy from.

Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO for Almo Professional A/V explained, “Integrators and resellers sometimes need flexible options to finance larger projects and grow their businesses. At the same time, their customers don’t want to buy hardware that becomes obsolete in a few years.” He continued, “Through our new AVaas offering, the biggest benefit to the dealer is managed cash flow and the ability to get paid up front while offering the end user one monthly payment. This financing enables our partners to close deals, accelerate buying decisions, improve schedule replacement cycles and much more. When the end user customer uses AVaas, they can apply operating funds instead of capital expenditures. Because they no longer own the hardware, they can easily replace it when the technology changes.”

Taylor added that when it’s time for that technology refresh, the reseller who did the original installation is in a perfect position to earn that business again. Almo AVaas Financial Solutions also allows partners to offer end users lease-to-own, recycling and equipment removal options.
