today announced 0% percent financing options for all IBM eServer xSeries products purchased directly or through IBM-authorized Business Partners in the U.S. for shipments by December 31, 2001, and installation by January 31, 2002.
The 0% financing option gives customers the flexibility to include IBM storage systems, as well as IBM personal computing products, with the xSeries solution, officials said.
Hardware available under 0% financing includes IBM eServer xSeries and related storage hardware, ThinkPad, IntelliStation, NetVista and associated peripheral devices. The 0% financing offer applies to purchases between $5,000 and $500,000. Financing is available for 24 month term only.
Building upon IBM’s strength in Intel-based systems to offer more technology at an affordable price, today’s announcement broadens IBM solution offerings to the mid-market customer set. Roughly defined as companies with 100-1,000 employees, these growing firms need technology partners that can deliver a complete, integrated solution supported by cost-effective financing terms.
“Coupled with IBM eServer xSeries technology, 0% financing empowers customers to get the solution their businesses need,” said Susan Whitney, IBM eServer xSeries. “Today’s announcement delivers the superior performance, reliability and scalability of IBM’s Intel-based servers at a lower total cost to customers.”
