Welbilt has launched a monthly payment option through which end users can now pay for their annual service contracts via direct debit.
Up until now, methods of payment available to Welbilt customers such as BACS, credit/debit card and cheque relied on customers being able pay in full, ahead of the cover period. Whilst these payment options are often preferable for many larger facilities and chains, it can cause an issue for smaller or new customers where cash flow is likely to be tight.
Colin Lacey, vice president of KitchenCare, Welbilt EMEA, detailed: “Service contracts always pay for themselves in the long run, but we appreciate that paying up front can deter independent customers or those with limited cash flow to get the full benefit.
“By introducing a monthly direct debit option, we hope that all our customers can take advantage of an annual service plan, which can quite often add years to the working life of catering equipment.”
In a bid to provide all clients with the best options for their business, Welbilt will continue to offer its previous payment methods alongside the recently-launched direct debit option. Customers can also specify a day for their automatic monthly payments to be taken out, allowing businesses further control of their cash flow.
