BNP Paribas Lease Group (BPLG) has won a contract with software giant Microsoft over its Microsoft Financing programme in four European countries.

The French lessor will provide financing solutions to both Microsoft’s direct SME-sized customers and customers serviced by resellers in France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

In November 2009, citing sources close to the deal, Leasing Life had already revealed that BPLG was the frontrunner in the bid to win the contract with Microsoft.

Two other major bank-owned lessors, Key Equipment Finance International (KEF) and SG Equipment Finance (SGEF), were understood to be in negotiations with the software giant to win the contract.

Commenting on the agreement, BPLG’s head of IT and telecom Joseph Pulicano said that the lessor was “proud to be working with Microsoft Financing and to contribute to Microsoft Financing’s development across the major European markets”.

He said that the company’s strong in-country involvement would “contribute to the success of this programme”.
