5 Ways to Save Money with Full Service Factoring


The primary benefit of invoice factoring for businesses is no doubt quick and easy access to working capital. This capital enhances cash flow and can be used for pretty much whichever purpose the business sees fit.  For smaller companies or startups without access to conventional lending, that’s one big reason to use factoring services; another big reason would be that full service factoring companies actually offer a multitude of other services at no additional cost that can actually save your business time and money. 

What’s a Full Service Factoring Company?

A full service factoring company goes much further than a simple transactional relationship by offering a host of value-added services that can free-up your time as a busy business owner and also have the potential to save money, boost cash flow even further and mitigate risk in an organization. Here are some of the services a full service factoring company may offer;

1. Credit Analysis

Credit analysis is a very specialized role concerned with all aspects of a business’ financial risk profile. When you use invoice factoring services, their analysts can undertake the background research and perform due diligence on new customer credit requests, changes to credit limits and make recommendations on improvements to business protocols to best protect your interests. 

2. Risk Management

A risk manager takes credit analysis to another level and an experienced professional in this area can mitigate future risk for businesses through the thorough identification of financial and other risks which may result in losses. Risk managers are well adept at gathering and analyzing complex financial data with regards to a client’s income, debt and assets and making recommendations which protect against identified risks before they become an issue. 

3. Professional Accounts Receivable Management

Accounts receivable usually make up the majority of a company’s available working capital so it’s vital to have invoices paid on time to maintain positive cash flow. Valuable hours can be spent chasing customers for payment of unpaid invoices however and this is something a factoring provider can manage for you.  Small business owners don’t usually have a lot of time on their hands to consistently send out payment reminders or keep on top of A/R aging reports so having experienced A/R management on your side to implement payment processes and communicate professionally with your clients is just like having an extension of your own team. 

4. Treasury Operations Support

Treasury operations have a more holistic view of a company’s finance. Treasury managers are responsible for overseeing cash flow and revenue, optimizing liquidity and also mitigating risk to the organization on a number of levels; operational, financial and reputational. Treasury managers invariably are highly qualified financial planners and have the excellent leadership and communication skills required to devise long-term financial strategy for a business. 

5. Customer Service Support

Factoring companies are used to dealing with the everyday service and support queries generated in the ordinary process of doing business with clients and suppliers and a good factoring company will already have the personnel to help clients manage this. For a small business, having someone dedicated to this area can result in incremental revenue opportunities, customer evangelism and improved brand awareness and reputation, which again, can produce increased profits.
