'Buy Now, Pay Later' For IBM Services


IBM is unveiling a new deferred payment program for customers buying IT integration and other services from its IBM Global Services division.

The program lets qualified IBM Global Services (VARBusiness rank 1) clients defer payment for 90 days on select IBM services, including things like e-business consulting, disaster recover and integration services, as long as they are financed through IBM Global Financing.

Big Blue is also planning to offer a 4.6 percent interest rate on a variety of hardware products, including servers, personal computers and storage systems, to qualified customers who buy before March 31.

Both offers, which are also available through IBM Business Partners, apply to customers in the U.S., Canada and select Latin America countries with transactions between $50,000 and $1 million.
