Financing Comparison

First American vs. Vendor Financing

Comparing financing options between leasing companies can often be like comparing two totally different solutions. If you have already made the decision to lease your technology the next decision is who to finance that technology with. With so many options available, how can a school identify which company is best equipped to meeting your financing needs? The answer is in being well informed. Schools often view vendor financing options as the simple and safest way to finane technology programs. However, there are many details that are often overlooked with these programs that your school should be aware of before selecting your finance partner.
