We are delighted to announce the relaunch of our WestWon Systems Finance division.
From the outset, WestWon and our previous company, Wyse Leasing, has always been focused on options including financing technology, computer hardware and associated IT equipment. Wyse Leasing grew to be one of the largest IT finance brokers in the UK before being sold to IT funder CHG Meridian in 2009. WestWon have been financing technology ever since, including acquiring the business Technology Leasing Limited in 2020.
Hear from the CEO himself
Talking about the significant changes over the last ten years, WestWon CEO Jeremy Hall explains:
“Years ago, there where tens if not hundreds of PC manufacturers, names such as Time, Evesham, Mesh, Elonex, Gateway and Mustard to name but a few. You then have the bigger companies such as IBM, Dell and HP. Many of these smaller manufacturers have since disappeared, just leaving the big brands.
The route to market has also seen significant changes. We used to have access to a list of 20,000 UK IT suppliers that would sell and install IT equipment. Nowadays, many companies buy their IT kit direct from the manufacturer. Similarly they can buy it via a large reseller such as Softcat or Bytes or even PC World.
Even with all these changes, there is still a massive requirement for IT and software finance in the UK. We saw this in our analysis of last year, many of our biggest leasing deals were for IT and software. Our Systems Finance division will focus on developing existing relationships with our Technology suppliers, offering the most efficient and easy to use processes in the broker market. We’ll be looking to then roll this out to new suppliers who don’t yet have a relationship with WestWon.”
