BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions and Daisy Group, today announced the extension of their partnership of five years. The new partnership will see the French financial services organisation continue to offer tailored technology finance solutions to Daisy’s 600,000 customers.
Daisy is one of the UK’s leading providers of business communications and IT services, and the renewed partnership comes at a significant point in the history of the group. Over the course of the last five years, Daisy Group has grown dramatically, acquiring a number of businesses including Phoenix IT Group, Damovo UK Limited and Alternative Networks, making it one of the few businesses in its industry that can genuinely offer an end-to-end portfolio of IT, telephony and Cloud services.
By outsourcing its financial services to BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions, Daisy Group is able to help businesses of all sizes benefit from leading-edge IT and telephony solutions without having to deplete cash reserves or dilute bank credit lines. Additionally, with BNP Paribas’ market-leading proposition in the financing of software and services, customers are able to deploy an enterprise-wide system with the convenience of regular payments, much like a subscription contract.
Colin Bell, Director of Procurement at Daisy Group commented:
“At Daisy Group, we’re focused on helping businesses embrace and truly benefit from technological innovation. BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions is a long-term partner that has proven capability to support our strategic goals. By offering our customers greater access to finance, we enable them to invest in the technology that will help them reach their true potential. I am delighted to see our partnership continue to thrive.”
Martin Ardern, ICT Sales Director, BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions commented:
“We believe that all businesses should have access to the tools and resources that will enable them to remain competitive and offer first class service. We’ve worked with Daisy Group for a number of years now, and it’s fantastic to see how their IT and telecoms solutions can truly transform their clients’ businesses.”
Daisy Group will be among the first to benefit from BNP Paribas’ improved online portfolio management tool – Lease Offers – which offers visibility to client data across all stages of the sales pipeline. The service includes a quote tool for quick credit decisions. The company also recently introduced an e-signature solution based on Adobe Sign technology to digitise the lease setup process, and further enhance the customer experience.
