Balancing Customer Relationships
Have you recently experienced the pain of having to acquire payment from outstanding invoices?

Let your factor manage your account receivables
Keeping account receivables current can be simple, but the process can often create headaches if invoices are not paid on time. If a factor manages your account receivables, you have more time to concentrate on positive aspects of your business, such as growth from existing accounts, and new account generation, making more money and not worrying about when an invoice is going to be paid.
Keeping your credit standing with suppliers by ensuring cash is available to pay bills on time
Once the worry of receiving payment on outstanding invoices is a concern of the past, you can make sure your suppliers are paid in a timely fashion. Prompt payment leads to happy suppliers who are willing to extend more credit, better rates, and allow more time between payments.
Customer credit monitoring
Many factors also check the credit of your new customers, reducing the possibility of less than favorable credit performance, another administrative responsibility that takes valuable time away from more profitable tasks. Factors can run checks quickly and efficiently, and are trained to understand the results and how they may impact both you and your customers. Knowing that you have invested energy on customers who have favorable credit ratings simply helps every aspect of your business to run more smoothly.
Unlike larger banks that focus on large corporate accounts, invoice factoring companies are here to help businesses stay current, enabling you to do what you do best—keep your customers happy. Every client has their own personal account executive to handle their business account.
