Looking to capitalize on the noise generated by the government’s cash for clunkers program, Arkansas based Windstream is launching their own version focused on business communications equipment. The program features Nortel Business Communications Manager or Software Communications System platforms and features “an automatic 15 percent rebate up to $5,000 now through the end of the year.”
“We have an opportunity for a true win-win situation with our business customers by giving them a bottom-line incentive to trade up for state-of-the-art phone and data equipment,” said Ric Crane, Windstream executive vice president and chief marketing officer. The program is offered through Windstream Financial Services. To qualify for automatic rebate, customers must agree to have Windstream dispose of traded equipment.
