Today at the National Retail Federation’s 103rd Annual Convention and Expo (NRF), Epson America, Inc., a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, revealed a new financing program that provides hassle-free leasing solutions to Epson customers throughout North America. By forming a strategic alliance with Marlin Business Services Corp. (NASDAQ: MRLN), a leading provider of equipment financing solutions, the company streamlines the acquisition process by providing access to quick and easy financing programs.
After introducing its growing lineup of OmniLink™ smart solutions, Epson joined with Marlin, in a transaction facilitated by Union Bank, N.A., to formalize a financing program that avoids the burden of up-front hardware costs. The new program supports all Epson solutions, providing fast and easy access to today’s most innovative technologies. Focused on high service levels and convenience, the program offers an Epson-focused microsite customized with web-based tools, such as an online quoting and real-time, status-tracking application process, with an average two-hour turnaround time for approvals. In addition, Epson-dedicated Marlin representatives are available to assist – either on the phone or in person at customer meetings – to customize scalable options for qualified borrowers.
“Tight budgets sometimes constrain strategic IT investments,” commented Gregg Brunnick, Director of Marketing for Epson’s Business Systems Division. “By partnering with Marlin, we’re addressing that pain point. By making our solutions easier to acquire, more retailers can take advantage of innovative technology that transforms stores.”
For immediate consideration, contact your authorized Epson reseller or your Epson representative.
