The financing arrangements are predominantly for products or services that are critical to the end users' business operations. These financing contracts are entered into after a credit evaluation and are secured by legal contracts. Global Financing maintains a long term partnership with the companies' clients through various stages of IT asset life cycle—from initial purchase and technology upgrades to asset disposition decisions. The company’s client financing leases and loan finances to end users and internal clients. Assets financed are primarily IT products and services where the company has expertise.

Systems and Technology may also sell the equipment that it purchases from Global Financing to external clients.
