The partnership means FundOnion’s customers will now have access to Sharp’s range of B2B solutions, which include managed print, IT services and audio-visual capabilities.

Sharp said the collaboration will ultimately help streamline customer’s internal operations.

“Our partnership with FundOnion will enable SMEs to access Sharp’s award-winning range of B2B technology products and services alongside lending solutions from one of the UK’s leading business finance platforms,” said Simon Warnes, Partnership director at Sharp.

“This Connect partnership highlights Sharp’s ongoing commitment to delivering the future of work to as many SMEs as possible.”

Sharp’s Connect Partner Program was introduced back in 2018 to widen the company’s support with businesses that complement its portfolio. Today, the company has more than 15 Connect Partners across a wide variety of areas and services, including Managed Print, IT, Document Processing, Office Products, and Consultancy.

By partnering with FundOnion, Sharp is now expanding client funding options across the diverse corporate, commercial, and public sector markets, it said.

“It’s a great pleasure to be partnering with Sharp – one of the world’s leading brands with a long and eminent history supporting both the commercial and corporate sectors,” commented James Robson, FundOnion CEO.

“We are enthusiastic to find more ways for our brands to work together to let SMEs know that our organisations are there looking to fight to help them grow during these uncertain times.”
