or many businesses, one element that can take up a great deal of time and strategic planning is how to keep your supply chains at their optimum. Read More
Keep Things Running with Fast Supply Chain Financing
Naturally, you’ll want to keep your costs as low as possible, and it’s important to remain updated on tariffs and import/export legislation in all the areas you operate. However, even the best-informed accountants can fall foul of sudden changes with your suppliers and those that service them.
In such cases, many businesses will turn to supply chain financing to ease backlogs, get invoices paid, and keep things running smoothly. Intelligently used, and this kind of financing can help a business accumulate speed in their supply and sales making the whole accounts and supply process much more efficient. But of course, a lot of this can rely on the company offering the capital.
Using SCF Finance to Grow Your Business
For a business to thrive, it is important that they are able to take as flexible an approach as possible, especially when it comes to their finances. But given how intensive some financial approaches are, it is rare to find accounting processes that can allow this kind of flexibility. To get to where you need to be, to be adaptable and compliant at once, you need to adopt a creative and intelligent approach.
This is where our SCF finance system can come in very useful. When you use our supplier finance services, you will very quickly find that things you previously thought impossible are actually within your grasp, providing you plan your approach carefully. It will allow you to take stock of your existing supplier agreements and have the space to improve your relationships with them, pay them on time, every time, and build up the capital you need to grow other parts of your business.
The Freedom to Take Up Opportunities
Previously, as you have built up your business, you may have felt as though you were always in a weak position to negotiate with your suppliers. You may have only felt confident enough to buy the stock you can afford, avoid overspending on equipment even if you need it, or stretch the materials you have and potentially undermine your products.
With our supply chain service, however, you have greater flexibility to start looking at those tempting discounts your suppliers may be offering. You can finally consider that state-of-the-art equipment you have had your eye on and potentially take advantage of bulk prices when it comes to the materials you require to build up your business. The more you are able to take advantage of these things, the better your credit is going to be with your supplier.
Creating Fluidity in the Financial Process
We recognise that paying invoices late can sometimes be unavoidable. Some suppliers have very strict rules when it comes to invoicing, and you might even have lost suppliers in the past due to unfortunate timing with your own clients. No one likes to lose clients, just as no one likes to lose their suppliers, which means that sometimes the model of invoicing, payment and supply can break down.
What our online supply chain finance system does is inject enough cash into this model to make it work as it is supposed to. More than just a supply chain loan, this service is an off-balance sheet finance agreement that really offers you time that you might not have otherwise. You can have your suppliers’ invoices paid early so that you can take advantage of the discounts whilst also taking advantage of a longer payment timeframe so you can build up the capital you need to keep things running smoothly.
Building Your Reputation
Most of all, our supplier finance services can help build up your profile in your industry. In any business, it is important to never underestimate the value of your reputation as a trader. When you have built up a reputation for quick payment and, as a consequence, speedy delivery to your clients, you will likely find all kinds of opportunities starting to open up for you. Suppliers will be only too pleased to offer you loyalty bonuses, special discounts and even cross-promotions where applicable. You will, in short, gain a reputation as a desirable trading partner!
