Can factoring your accounts receivable really increase efficiency? There are fees attached to factoring after all, and does invoice factoring really end up being a cost effective answer that genuinely makes a company more profitable?

The simple answer is yes!

Social media marketing has helped spread the word about what is popular for the upcoming holiday season, from the best toys, to the most fashionable winter clothing, and the ‘must have’ gifts.
