KUCHING: Acer Malaysia has introduced an initiative to assist small and medium enterprises (SMEs) transform their businesses to working remotely or via an online model by helping to equip them with the necessary IT devices.
Acer Malaysia’s use-first-pay-later scheme enables businesses that need to equip their staff or upgrade their equipment in order to gain immediate access to the technology required to adopt a more digital model.
Based on a model that allows the option of rent-to-own or rent-to-use, the scheme allows SMEs and enterprises in Malaysia to lease a minimum of RM50,000 worth of IT devices from Acer that suit their business needs.
The instalment or lease period ranges from 24 to 36 months, depending on the devices required and monthly instalment amount they can afford.
To further assist these businesses during this difficult time, the commencement of the instalments can be deferred for six months, whereby businesses will only need to pay the initial instalment in the first month and begin repayment for the rest of the instalments in the seventh month onwards.
With this use-first-pay-later scheme, Acer Malaysia aims at alleviating SMEs’ burden in the initial stages of technology acquisition, so that they can fully focus on generating revenue through new channels.
Acer Malaysia is also offering a zero-interest lease option for eligible businesses.
“Acer Malaysia wants to help support these businesses in their IT needs for them to emerge stronger, continue to provide employment, and contribute to the nation as SMEs are the backbone of our country’s economy,” said Chan Weng Hong, general manager of sales, product and marketing at Acer Malaysia.
This initiative is a comprehensive solution for PCs, services, and software from Acer and can be tailored to meet the requirements of the customers.
Additionally, Acer Malaysia is extending three years of on-site warranty for free with their package.
Acer Malaysia’s initiative is open for application now. Interested SME applicants can apply for Acer Malaysia’s scheme at https://b2b.acer.com.my/ or contact Acer Info Hotline at 1800-88-1288 or email to email@example.com.
