In what it believes is an industry first, Lorge has introduced an option for 100% software financing of Sage 300 ERP, Sage CRM and Sage ERP X3 accounting and business management software solutions.

“Through our partnership with Spartan, a long-standing and pioneering direct rental funder, we are able to offer our clients the means by which they can obtain the software they need while maintaining their cash flow and reserves,” says Lorge CEO Derek Porter.

“The Spartan financing package enables software licensing, implementation, customisation, annual licence fees and training requirements to be financed. For software upgrades an annual assurance fee can be financed over 12 months.”

Keith Fenner, senior VP Sales for Sage ERP Africa and Middle East, says Sage is recognised as a global leader in the provision of scalable sets of ERP and CRM solutions that deliver lasting benefits and reduced cost of ownership across a broad spread of industries.

“Sage delivers continuously in an ever-changing world that demands the highest levels of service and the latest technology. This new financing option enables companies to acquire the software they need without impacting their cash flow as well as preserving their capital.”

“Since January 2012 Spartan has experienced a 1 504% leap in software vendors applying to forge finance partnerships with Spartan. Having a thorough assessment process we are delighted to have formed a partnership with an esteemed player such as Lorge,” comments Spartan CEO, Kumaran Padayachee.
