HP Announces Partner & Customer Relief Initiatives

Published On: April 20, 2020Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

HP has announced a variety of relief initiatives aimed at helping its global channel partner base to effectively navigate the operational and financial challenges associated with COVID-19. In addition to providing a variety of financing and leasing options for end customers, the company will offer short-term, market and country-specific incentives for channel partners. Offers will vary by geography and are dependent on partner eligibility.

In addition, HP has implemented a flat-rate incentive program and relaxed compensation models to allow for more partner flexibility while extending deadlines for submission of proof of performance and reporting.

“As a global company, we understand the importance of acting globally while executing at the local level,” said Christoph Schell, HP’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Rather than taking a one-size fits all approach, we are taking a customized approach specific to the unique and evolving dynamics at the market and country level, depending on a variety of factors.”

HP’s Integrated Financial Solutions group is now offering a variety of financial and asset lifecycle options, including deferred/reduced payments until 2021, short term rentals and cash infusion for customer-owned HP devices through a sale leaseback program. Customers can also take advantage of a delayed payment structure or enroll in a PC rental program, available on equipment contracts for a period of 12 months.

HP will also offer its HP Sure Click Pro free of charge through September 30, 2020, to help protect users from web, email, and document-based security threats.
