Working with finance professionals around the world, the financial services department of JBL Professional (Northridge, Calif.) offers a wide range of methods for audio companies to purchase or lease JBL Professional speaker systems. One of the newest programs, with U.S. Commerce Equipment Leasing, uses an online application that is accessed directly from JBL's Website, www.jblpro.com, for the company's U.S. customers.
Simply by going to the JBL Professional Website, customers can find the details of the available programs and go directly to the online application form. This is linked to U.S. Commerce Equipment Finance, which is able to offer flexible lease packages at competitive rates.
"A significant amount of the overall business of JBL Professional involves the purchase of large sound systems, for touring, rental sound systems and permanent installations," said Lou Wilhelm, director of financial services for JBL Professional. "We have set up a wide range of versatile financial packages for our customers that allow them to obtain the best system possible using a lease or credit program that will meet their needs. These programs are especially crucial for our new VERTEC customers, who buy 24, 48 and even 72 VERTEC enclosures, which we can put on a lease along with other Harman products, such as Crown amplifiers, Soundcraft mixers and electronics from BSS and dbx."
These leasing programs allow JBL Professional customers to customize a financial program to meet the particular needs of a new installation, new portable sound system, tour rig or other large application.
