"Flooring Program" (pending bank approval)

This program provides value added resellers with access to the best terms available and a simpler, smarter way to purchase product without constraining cash flow.

Lifeboat Distribution is offering a joint agreement which allows up to 60 days interest-free financing to qualified resellers on Lifeboat purchases. The following financing companies are participants in this program: Wells Fargo®, GE Wells Fargo®, De Lange Landen® (DLL) and IBM.

Key Benefits:

  • No set-up fee
  • No annual fee or minimum usage requirements
  • Reduced bank borrowing costs and increased credit capability

After opening a line of credit with one of the above mentioned (and approved) companies, it is the customer's responsibility to then notify Lifeboat that orders will be processed via their new selected flooring company.

Escrow

For those customers that do not qualify for sufficient credit, Lifeboat Distribution offers two escrow payment options.

Blind Escrow

Underwriting approval is based on the financial strength of the reseller and end user. Under this agreement, the end user is not aware of any arrangement with Lifeboat Distribution. However, the customer is required to open up an escrow account with Wayside Technology Group under their own Tax ID number. Any form of payment received from the customer's end user must then be directed through the escrow account.

Visible Escrow or Assignment of Proceeds

Under this agreement, the Lifeboat customer must inform their end-user to make payment directly to Lifeboat Distribution. After receiving payment, Lifeboat Distribution will then return the agreed upon margin back to the customer.

Extended Financing Option

For credit worthy customers and qualified transactions, Lifeboat Distribution offers extended financing up to 2 years.

Note: Qualification, Interest rate and terms are determined based on credit worthiness, deal size and other factors.
