Italy’s Business2Finance (B2F), an online finance portal, has recently signed an agreement with Westcon Group, the US-headquartered distributor of networking and communication technologies.
B2F’s general manager Claudio Mombelli said: “We’ve recently won a number of significant deals, including this one with Westcon for their Italian market.”
“As a matter of fact, we are providing them with a finance business unit, which is managed in outsourcing. We believe this is a very innovative model, which cancels all risks related to the creation of your own captive,” Mombelli said.
With the agreement, Westcon’s customers – large distributors – will be able to finance sales to their final customers, he added.
B2F, which is owned by lease software provider Liscor, plans to expand its partnership with Westcon also in other EU countries, starting from the Benelux.
