Take advantage of Sage MAS 500 v7.2 with the new Get Back on Track plan

There is good momentum with customers returning to a maintenance plan and upgrading to the
current version of Sage MAS 500. Our goals are simple:

Key Equipment Finance Payment Options

Don't let budget objections keep you from closing deals in your pipeline! Key Equipment
Finance offers several payment options for your customers.

6-month Step Up Payments Lease - Monthly payment of $99 for first 6 months, followed by Standard
lease payments that will then commence for 18, 30, 42, or 54 month term. That's right; your customers
can pay only $99 per month for the first six months at no cost!

The Key Equipment Finance program is the affordable, easy, fast, and secure way for your customers
to pay for their Sage Software solutions monthly, instead of having to purchase them with a single
up-front payment. The program was developed with and is administered by Key Equipment Finance.

Breaking down the transaction cost into small monthly payments can make all the difference in getting
the deal done. In a tighter economy, if you are not offering Key Equipment Finance options to your
customers on every proposal, be aware that your competitors are hotly pursuing this avenue.

Details about the Key Equipment Finance program can be found on the Partner File Center .

Deferred Payment for 90 days - New customers can choose to defer payment for 90 days!

Schulz Consulting Mail - Announcing Spring Promotions for Sa... https://mail.google.com/a/s-consult.com/?ui=2&ik=8b75b6e93...

90-Day Same as Cash option - 90-day cash term with the option to convert to a standard 24-
or 36-month lease term after the 90 days.
0% Financing Options and Lower Rates! 0% Financing with 24- or 36-month lease terms.
Requires business partner to discount lease amount by 10% (24-month term) or 14%
(36-month term) to cover interest cost.
0% Financing Option for QuickBooks Customers Migrating to Sage MAS 90 -
QuickBooks Users Edition or Sage MAS 500

Do away with the objection of cost. Now is the time to make sure you communicate to all your
prospects that you are not asking for a large outlay of capital. Express the investment in monthly terms
against a monthly ROI. Divide the ROI by the lease terms (60 months for example) and close on the
difference.

Monthly ROI of $6,000 less monthly investment as a lease of $5,800=$200 upside

This way, your prospect's cash investment is small, their savings is actual cash in the bank, and you
do away with cost as an objection. Go back to every prospect in your pipeline and express your
proposal in monthly terms to push for a close NOW.

The Key QuoteMaster financing calculator can be found on the Partner File Center under the
category Key Equipment Finance.

Stephen Interlicchio (stepheninterlicchio@key.com) from Key Equipment Finance is more than willing
to help you include these options in your early conversations with a prospect. If you send him your
prospect's company name, address, and phone number, he can give you a 24-hour turn-around on a
pre-approval amount. Having a pre-approval amount as a point of discussion with your prospect can
certainly help move forward the sales cycle. This can also eliminate any last minute scrambling to
close a deal.

Ask your regional account manager or regional sales manager for questions on the Key Equipment
Finance program.
