With services implementations, costs are typically heaviest at the front end, while the benefits don’t fully accrue until the project is implemented. A better approach can be to match cost outlays to expected benefits with flexible financing. When the project is financed and structured accordingly, costs and benefits track much more closely and large expenses can be turned into affordable monthly payments. This, in turn, makes the project more likely to be approved, and improve the ROI for your client. Our financing solutions generally focus on up-front, one-time charges or phased-in charges for multistage projects.
