Bayer Environmental Science has introduced a new, simplified payment model, following feedback from customers.
Rather than buying the system outright, DPM will now also be offered as a rental or lease system, offered on a cost per trap per month. This cost includes traps, two gateways, access to the portal, the Bayer DPM app, all data and a full support package by the DPM team based in the UK.
The lease term will be a minimum three-year period, with Bayer replacing all existing traps with new if the lease is renewed for a further three-year term, therefore eliminating the need for any traps to be replaced due to excessive use or battery depletion. This lease model also aligns with the quarterly invoicing model that pest controllers and their clients usually work to.
Gary Nicholas, Bayer’s DPM commercial manager UK & Ireland, said: “Our new payment plan mitigates the risk to PCO’s of having to use working capital to buy Digital Pest Management. The three-year contract means the cost is spread over the three-year period making it easier to manage budgets.
“Digital pest solutions are revolutionising the way pest management is delivered. As new ideas, new features and new monitoring devices are rolled out, Digital Pest Management will inevitably become a more powerful pest management tool.”
