Zetron is partnering with the US-based public finance organization Government Capital Corporation to offer tax-exempt financing to help public safety agencies—such as 9-1-1 centers, fire departments, and city/county governments—purchase new equipment. The financing program applies to a full range of public safety products, including:
- Dispatch console systems
- CAD and mapping systems
- 9-1-1 call-taking systems
- Records-management systems
- Mobile radios and pagers
- Logging recorders
Financing can also apply to solutions that are bundled to include installation, dispatch furniture, and other public safety products.
Government Capital has extensive expertise and experience offering such programmes. They have already helped thousands of agencies and local governments throughout the United States purchase equipment. Government Capital also works with agencies to develop financing plans that meet their individual requirements.
Several Zetron customers have already taken advantage of this programme. Joe Bigar, Director of Emergency Services for Clearfield County, Pennsylvania explains how it benefitted his agency.
“Government Capital’s financing gave us an immediate and affordable way to replace our aging dispatch equipment with Zetron’s IP-based MAX Dispatch system,” he said. “As a result, we now have an updated, improved system that allows us to share backup and resources across a regional network.”
“Zetron recognizes the difficult budget conditions that are affecting many of our public safety customers,” said Zetron VP and general manager of sales, Wayne Foret. “We’re happy to be able to provide access to competitive-rate financing that makes it easier for them to purchase the equipment they require. A key reason we chose to partner with Government Capital in this effort is that they are very flexible and willing to create financing plans tailored to suit each customer’s unique needs.”
