Extreme Networks Introduces LEAP in Response To COVID-19 Crisis

Now through September 30, 2020, Extreme Networks will offer LEAP – the Lending Enablement & Assistance Program — to provide preferential financial terms for qualified channel partners across the Americas and Europe.

LEAP ensures current channel partners can maintain their existing competency certification levels through the balance of 2020. It also provides access to an expanded portfolio of free online training options and other incentives.

Administered through Extreme Capital Solutions, LEAP provides flexible financing options through participating Extreme distribution partners. Upon purchase of Extreme products and services, these terms can offer maximum financial flexibility by deferring the first payment up to 180 days, and securing financing as low as 0 percent across the term of the loan. Low interest payments can also be combined with payment deferral options.

LEAP offers additional flexibility for channel partners to retain their certifications, receive additional training, and earn performance rebates. LEAP also makes it easier for Extreme channel partners to maintain their partner program status into calendar year 2021. These specific changes include free certification training, reduced growth rebate targets, and extended partner leveling requirements and training deadlines.

Extreme continues to expand its portfolio of classes available through virtual classrooms via authorized training partners. More than 90 percent of Extreme´s technical certification training is now available online.
