How IT financing can help your business grow and thrive

first_imgAs the leader of Dell’s in-house financing provider, every day I see businesses grapple with the difficulty of keeping up with rapidly evolving technology trends while managing tight IT budgets.In fact, a recent Techaisle survey showed that budget constraints are the top IT challenge for small and medium business owners. That’s why customers of all sizes need a financing partner with the knowledge and flexibility to offer a custom solution that will lead to more savings for the business.With the variety of options available, financing can be just as important as the choice of technology solution.Here are just a few of the benefits customers tell us they get from working with Dell Financial Services (DFS):Preserving cash and beating budget constraints: Financing, rather than paying for a solution outright, offers far more advantages than basic capital preservation. It can allow a business to take a holistic strategic approach to addressing their technology needs for today and tomorrow. Plus, financing with an in-house partner like DFS can offer more flexible terms and conditions than other sources of financing, enabling you to meet specific budget and cash flow requirements.Accelerating ROI and increasing operational efficiency: In that same Techaisle survey, 58% of small and medium business respondents said they agree or strongly agree that the role of technology is to “improve operational efficiency.” DFS works with businesses to reduce complexity and risk, spreading costs over multiple budget cycles. We also offer flexible terms and conditions customized to your technology solution and the needs of your business. This can help you grow with your technology instead of out of it.Flexible consumption options: DFS offers flexible consumption options that give businesses the most flexibility possible as they respond to changing technology needs. These payment options allow businesses to scale their usage based on demand (pay-per-use), plan for technology refresh cycles as the business grows, or evaluate new technology before purchasing it outright.Beyond the products, there is a unique advantage to working with dedicated DFS account teams embedded in the sales motion for a complex IT purchase. We can finance the total solution through one sales motion, and that can make life much easier for customers like Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs.When Watershed needed to implement a new IT infrastructure within a limited budget, they turned to Dell for a new private cloud solution based on Dell servers, storage and networking. Whit Baker, Watershed’s IT Director, said in addition to Dell providing the best deal, he valued the peace of mind offered by the financing expertise of the dedicated DFS account teams:“…because the Dell Financial Services guys already knew everyone working in sales and infrastructure, the communication between them freed me up from having to convey this information to another financing facility. I would be spending my time all day long trying to describe all this equipment to them and why we need to purchase this. I’ve been relieved of that burden, because DFS is doing that work for me.”&nbsp;</p><p>Every year, DFS helps hundreds of thousands of Dell customers and channel partners like Watershed acquire $4 billion of Dell (and non-Dell) hardware, software and services. That’s a lot of conversations with businesses of all shapes and sizes. In those conversations, we’ve seen time and again how the right financing solution, paired with the right technology, can really help a business grow and thrive.last_img read more

Firm indefinitely delays plans to retrieve Titanic’s radio

first_imgNORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The company that owns the salvage rights to the Titanic shipwreck has indefinitely delayed plans to retrieve and exhibit the vessel’s radio equipment because of the coronavirus pandemic. The company announced the delay in a court filing made Friday in a federal admiralty court in Norfolk, Virginia. RMS Titanic Inc. cited difficulties of international travel and health risks to the expedition team. The company has also lost revenue after virus-related restrictions closed exhibits of its vast collection of Titanic artifacts. Even without the pandemic, the expedition is far from guaranteed. The firm has been in an ongoing court battle with the U.S. government over whether the undertaking is legal.last_img read more

Why ‘Clean Coal’ Remains out of Reach

first_imgWhy ‘Clean Coal’ Remains out of Reach FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Robert Rapier for Forbes:Since the coal industry and utilities that use coal want to continue to exist, they have pushed the clean coal narrative for many years. After all, if there is some hope that this dream is achieved, perhaps the EPA could cut them some slack while they work out the kinks.It’s not so hard to imagine how it would be done. In fact, it’s already been demonstrated many times at a pilot scale. The exhaust from the power plant stack is captured, compressed, and stored underground — either in a cavern or an old oil or gas field.The key challenge has always been one of economics. The capital cost of capturing and compressing those emissions is very high, and the power consumed in compressing the carbon dioxide places a parasitic load on the power plant. Just to compress the emissions can require the electric power requirements of 10% of the plant output, and then it must still be transported to an appropriate site and pumped into the ground. All of these factors drive up the costs to the point that coal power with carbon capture is prohibitively expensive relative to competing ways of producing power.The prohibitive costs are amply demonstrated by the FutureGen project in Illinois. This project was a partnership between the United States Department of Energy (DOE) and an alliance of coal mining and electric utility companies. The project was to be located at the 275 MW Meredosia Power Station in Illinois.FutureGen won $1.1 billion in federal money in 2009, and the project cost was estimated to be $1.65 billion. The DOE spent $202 million on the project, but missed project deadlines and unresolved technology challenges ultimately caused the DOE to pull the plug on the project in 2015.While there are a number of other pilot projects underway around the world, they all suffer from the same basic problem. The costs of competing technologies are close enough to coal that when you try to capture the carbon dioxide emissions it pushes the cost of coal-fired power beyond the competition.Thus, in reality there aren’t any commercial clean coal technologies. It’s very likely there won’t be any. So for countries that have committed to reducing carbon emissions, the pressure to phase out coal will continue to be intense.Full item: The Elusive Search For Clean Coallast_img read more

CUNA follows up Treasury meeting with regulatory relief recommendations
