Nutanix supports partners with financial assistance programme

Nutanix has unveiled details of its finanical assistance programme for its partners to help them get through the Covid-19 crisis.

The enterprise cloud computing firm has introduced the Nutanix Special Financial Assistance Program (NSFAP) in a bid to demonstrate its commitment to support partners worldwide, as they work to sustain business operations amidst rapidly changing macroeconomic conditions. 

The NSFAP program will provide participating partners with extended payment terms to give them increased financial flexibility for their businesses. Additionally, Nutanix enables enhanced financing options for customers through Nutanix Financial Solutions (NFS).

“We recognise the immense pressure businesses face today and we are happy to be able to offer immediate support to our partners by alleviating cash flow concerns and increasing financing flexibility,” explains Chris Kaddaras, executive vice president, worldwide sales, Nutanix. 

“Our commitment to our partners has never been stronger. We will continue to evaluate the needs of our community to ensure our partners and customers have the resources they need to be successful in the current environment," he says.

"Organisations today are highly focused on conserving cash flow and deferring expenses, all while keeping their business going, retaining their workforce, and supporting their customers. The NSFAP aims to help provide liquidity to partners and provide them the financial flexibility needed to support their businesses and customers, based on each partner’s particular needs," Kaddaras says.

Customers can also leverage enhanced financing solutions through the Nutanix customer financing organisation, NFS, designed to support their business continuity, including 180-day deferred payment, customisable payment plans, cash trade-in of existing assets, and more. 

In addition, Kaddaras says Nutanix is investing in the learning and development of partner organisations by offering free certification exams for partners through July 31, 2020, and is continuing to offer no-cost courses and resources on the Nutanix Partner Portal and through field enablement programs virtually. 

Christian Alvarez, VP, Americas Channel, Nutanix, adds, "At a time when organisations everywhere are looking to deliver remote work solutions to their employees quickly and securely, Nutanix is focused on supporting customers and partners with rapid deployment of a series of programs. 

"These include: the Nutanix FastTrack for VDI offering, which allows organisations with existing VDI to quickly onboard thousands of remote employees, enabling the rapid deployment of the infrastructure needed to provide secure, seamless access to business apps and desktops; and the Nutanix Work From Anywhere (WFA) initiative includes a 30-day free trial of Xi Frame, Nutanix’s Desktop as a Service solution, which allows IT administrators to set up a secure remote virtual app and desktop environment in just a few hours," he explains.

“Today, more than ever, IT teams are playing a crucial role in helping businesses maintain operations remotely," says Alvarex. 

"We strongly believe in doing what we can to ensure our partners have the technology and resources necessary to continue supporting their customers during this difficult time."
