Leasing and maintenance transfer schemes maximise value from existing assets

Tally Ltd, the computer printer specialist, today announced that it is to offer customers of its previous line and dot matrix range (MT prefix models) the chance to upgrade and take advantage of state-of-the-art printing systems that support new technologies and applications. Customers trading in their models for new printers can claim as much as £250 cash-back. The offer also applies to line and matrix printer models from other vendors.

This offering comes at a time when IT managers are exercising caution in their hardware investments. Tally aims to help customers achieve a cost-effective method of acquiring the latest printer technology by ensuring that each customer has the right tools for the job, and the option to purchase outright or lease through a suitable payment scheme.

Managing Director of Tally, Robin Edwardes states, “Companies using laser and inkjet printers to run batch or volume applications will be paying a huge premium, as these printers are designed for low-medium office workloads. We work closely with our customers to ensure that such instances do not occur and that customers get maximum value from their printing investment in line and dot matrix models. The trade-up programme is another way of adding value, and in conjunction with our leasing programme, customers can maximise their current assets without the need to pay for it upfront.”

Working in partnership with Siemens IT Finance, Tally has also developed a leasing programme, so that companies can trade-up to a new printer technology without using their working capital. ‘Tally Finance’ enables companies to make payments on a quarterly basis, which can be offset against tax, reducing the net costs to business so that companies can budget more accurately. The lease includes cost of maintenance and consumables, which eliminates the hidden costs that can be associated with leasing programmes.

If customers choose to purchase outright, Tally offers trade-up values dependent on the type of printer being upgraded and the new Tally printer being purchased. In instances where printers are Tally’s own brand and customers have an existing maintenance contract in place with Tally, it will transfer the balance period of the maintenance contract to become incremental to the warranty period for the new printer. When companies upgrade from other brands, Tally offers a maintenance agreement incentive by offering a 15% discount on a 3-year maintenance plan. Collection and disposal of older printers will be arranged by Tally and will be at no additional cost.

Terms and Conditions for the trade-up programme are available from
