PRIDE MOBILITY HELPS PROVIDERS SUCCEED WITH RENTAL READY PROGRAM
EXETER, PA - March 14, 2011 - Pride Mobility Products Corporation is pleased to announce Pride's Rental Ready Program, developed to deliver the products and business efficiencies providers need to transition to the rental environment as seamlessly as possible. The elimination of Medicare's First Month Purchase Option has presented DME business owners with numerous challenges. The program is a comprehensive offering of products and services designed specifically to help authorized Pride providers succeed.
Pride's Rental Ready Program delivers business efficiencies including the Rental Ready Jazzy Select Elite®. Designed to withstand the rigors of the rental environment, the Jazzy Select Elite has been adapted and armored to be the highest quality, most cost effective product available to meet a provider's Standard Power needs. New rental ready features include a solid, color-through shroud, and a black high-back seat with removable, replaceable foam and vinyl. The rental ready Jazzy Select Elite also features new Jazzy® ArmorTM, which includes standard shroud and controller guards to protect the Jazzy from daily wear and tear.
"We went directly to providers to get their feedback on what a power chair needed to be in the new rental environment," said Scott Meuser, Pride Mobility's Chairman and CEO. "That information guided our design process and allowed us to develop a durable, high quality unit that can withstand the rigors of the rental environment. Providers also wanted a power chair that could be easily refurbished and returned to the field. Features like protective Jazzy Armor and affordable refurbishment kits for the most common wear items help to meet this need."
A 13-month warranty on all Group 1 and Group 2 power wheelchairs K0814 through K0831 and a variety of service options ranging from 13-month labor contracts and a proven nationwide field service technician network is also available. Pride also offers multiple financing options through Galaxy
Mobility Financial Services, LLC, to meet individual provider needs. From inventory financing to fleet financing, our financing solutions can help navigate the rental world with little to no impact on provider cash flow.
"Galaxy Mobility Financial Services, LLC, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pride designed expressly to help providers transition to the new rental environment," said Kirsten DeLay, Executive Vice President, Sales Management & Operational Planning. "Galaxy programs offer a comprehensive and flexible financing solution to solve the cash flow challenge related to the elimination of the first months purchase option, allowing extended payments beyond Pride trade terms. The programs offer competitive interest rates, have a high number of credit approvals, free up Pride credit lines for additional purchasing power and assure continued access to the industry's most trusted products."
