    We have clients in industries ranging from office and technology equipment to industrial and healthcare products who have developed complex offerings to meet the broader needs of their customers

    NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As they work to differentiate their value propositions and enhance their profit margins, equipment manufacturers and their distribution channel partners are increasingly turning to managed services and other complex product structures that combine products and services, according to CIT Group Inc. (NYSE:CIT)cit.com, a leading provider of financing and advisory services to small businesses and middle market companies. The administrative challenges of these complex structures, known as “Total Solutions,” can be daunting for suppliers. As such, CIT has leveraged its deep expertise in lending, leasing and advisory services to produce “Executing a Total Solutions Strategy,” (cit.com/totalsolutions), a white paper that shares insights for companies considering implementing a comprehensive managed services offering.

    “We have clients in industries ranging from office and technology equipment to industrial and healthcare products who have developed complex offerings to meet the broader needs of their customers,” said Nick Small, Managing Director,CIT Equipment Finance, US. “For a variety of reasons, these clients often administer these transactions themselves, but their systems and processes typically are unable to meet the intent of the original selling structure without massive manual intervention. This ultimately has a negative impact on their customer experience. However, equipment finance companies are ideally suited to assist companies in providing the required capabilities in product structuring, invoicing and accounts payable and receivable administration.”

    Small continued, “FlexAbility from CIT was created to support the nearly limitless types of managed services and total solutions structures that manufacturers and distributors are building and offering today. With FlexAbility, CIT’s clients can be confident in supporting practically any structure they sell, how they charge for it and who they partner with as part of the solution.”

    “Executing a Total Solutions Strategy” explores different types of product structures with particular attention to usage-based and variable structures that are often found in these sales. The white paper identifies a number of product and administrative considerations to assist companies in building Total Solutions and provides direction on how to leverage a finance provider’s systems for these important transactions.
