Insight Payment Terms
Common challenges are faced when considering how best to utilise budgets to deliver transformation
With the emergence of new pressures on working environments, coupled with an organisations' need to maximise Treasury funds to keep pace with technology trends and working practices means effective use of budgets comes under increasing pressure. Optimising spend including IT transformation and “keeping the lights on” for both the short and long term, becomes a key focus for effective budget management. The consideration of doing so under the pressures of ensuring effective spending means CTOs look to technology to transform and drive efficiencies whilst CFOs also consider how best to utilise their budgets to achieve this effectively.
You need to:
- Defer and optimise cost over time without taking on debt
- Create long term cost certainty through fixed predictable periodic invoices
- Realise cost as multiyear services are activated and align cost to be taken as technology benefit is seen
- Pay as you grow - acquire technology now, deploy in phases aligning cost to cash flow and budget
- See quicker ROI through releasing accelerated technology discounts & removing future renewal cost inflation
Insight’s flexible payment agreement is an extension of our typical credit terms allowing you to acquire the software & support you need, when you need it.
- 1-5-year payment terms
- Realise upfront commit savings without increasing upfront capital requirements – maintain annual budget allocations
- Deferred payment start date options whilst taking immediate benefit delivered by the Software
- Utilise the budget available and defer potential remaining cost to another point in time
- Accelerate IT transformation & delivery without compromise
- Preserve access to capital raising and business credit lines for greater business contingencies via leveraging Insight as a competitive source of additional credit.
- Innovate on your terms: structure credit invoice terms to meet business cash flow or budget releases through predictable long term expense certainties
- Maximise and accelerate ROI through cost structuring over time lowering upfront investment impact. Multiyear software & support commits attract increased discounts improving total solution ROI
- Realise tangible savings by leveraging Insight as a credit source
- Potential for accounting treatment benefits through recording expense when invoiced (aligned to annual service renewals) preserving key business financial ratios and shareholder value
