Syscap raises the bar for legal finance Tuesday 11 September 2007 PDF Print Finance specialist Syscap awarded ‘Approved Supplier’ status by BarCo Syscap Limited, the UK’s leading independent finance and leasing supplier to professional practices, has been awarded ‘Approved Supplier’ status by Bar Services Company Limited (BarCo), having undergone a stringent selection process using quality criteria set by the BarCo board. When its existing approved finance supplier made a strategic decision to exit the legal sector in June this year, BarCo approached Syscap as a possible replacement. BarCo is a wholly owned subsidiary of The General Council of the Bar of England and Wales. Set up in 2000, BarCo provides access for members of the Bar community to high quality products and services which are designed to save time, money or both.

Its solutions are designed to enable professional businesses to acquire specialist equipment and services as well as to cater for a wide range of situations where there is a requirement for unsecured finance. Philip White, Chief Executive Officer, Syscap, says: “As the UK’s leading finance and leasing supplier to professional practices, Syscap has a wealth of specialist market knowledge and expertise and perhaps the widest range of financial products in the market place. We are competitive and we understand the legislation that influences and impacts the market. Syscap’s relationship with BarCo gives us even greater exposure to the market place and we can add real value to members of the Bar, as a result.” “I was a little apprehensive at the prospect of finding a worthy replacement for our long standing finance partner,” says Julie Monkman, General Manager for Bar Services Company Limited (BarCo). “I am delighted to be teaming up with Syscap as they have displayed the utmost in professionalism and responsiveness throughout the selection process and will provide an excellent range of products and service to members of the Bar. I am certain that this is the beginning of an exciting new phase for BarCo with a market-leading finance partner.” BarCo’s approved supplier status is the latest in a line of professional accreditation for Syscap, which boasts endorsement in other areas of the business including partnerships with Becta, the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), the e-Learning Foundation and the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT).
