United Finance

Pivot from product sales to service sales and make it in a world where ownership is a burden.

We will help you.

United Finance

Welcome to the new era of service sales.

The world is changing fast, and traditional business models are changing along with it. More and more companies want to buy products as services instead of actually owning them.

We will help your company adjust to this new era of buying and shift from traditional product sales to service sales.

You provide your customers with services, and they pay you for them. It’s as simple as that.

How is this good for your business?

You will get new customers

Your potential customers would rather pay for using devices, not for owning them.

Customers will be more likely to buy

It's much easier to make a decision on a €1,500 monthly service than on a €50,000 investment.

The value of your company will increase

In addition to product sales, your business will include long-term service agreements.

Customer loyalty will increase

When customers go from buying products to subscribing to services, you can deepen your relationship by adjusting your service to meet their needs.

Bring your product to us.
We will turn it into a service.

You will get a ready-made financing model and the tools you need to develop and maintain your service sales based business.

How we do it

1.Customer Relations Team

We believe in partnership and want to ensure, your
organizations sales personnel will experience using our
service smooth and effortless.

2. Initial arrangements

We will go through your product and service portfolio with your company and work out the practical matters. After that, we will be ready to launch your service sales.

3. Service sales

Once your services start selling, you can use the easy-to-use ufinance.com portal to make service agreements with your customers. After the contract has been signed, your company will deliver the products your customers need.

4. Invoicing

We will pay you for the device and manage the end user service invoicing on your behalf under your company’s name.

Ufinance

Ufinance.com is a core part of United Finance’s service offering. It is a tool our partners can use to digitalise their sales processes and make a smooth transition from product sales to service sales.

  • The United Finance app, which we have been actively developing since 2010, is designed to support product management and the automated creation of service contracts.
  • The financing of service contracts has been largely automated, which means you can make smaller service contracts with lower transaction costs.
  • Delivery and service contracts can be created quickly and easily online via the Ufinance app. The service is available to all our customers and it can be customised on a partner-specific basis.
  • The app lets you and your partners manage the entire lifecycle of your contracts.
  • The app will be linked to the existing financial management software, which means that users can directly link contract transactions to their own accounting.
