AltiGen Communications (NASDAQ:ATGN) has teamed up with Parsippany, N.J.-based US Express Leasing (USXL) to form AltiGen Communications Finance (ACF). Through the deal, USXL will provide monthly payment financing for AltiGen customers, and the companies will jointly market the new program.

ACF's lease and financing options allow customers to acquire the full range of AltiGen products, including third-party networking and IT equipment, software and services. The company will offer its customers the all-in-one products, services and financing package through its network of resellers.

"By providing this new financing avenue to our resellers, we are making it easier for small and medium businesses to purchase our high-reliability VoIP phone systems and our comprehensive Standard and Premier Service Plans," Mike Plumer, vice president of sales for AltiGen Communications, said in a statement. "USXL is a long time preferred leasing partner and this expanded relationship supports our ability to drive sales and substantially enhance our offerings."
