Businesses in all industries rely on well-trained, experienced workers to serve their customers. Hiring good people, or training someone who has potential takes time and money. Factoring helps add key employees by providing the cash flow to hire, train, and pay new staff.
Many B2B industries wait 30, 60, 90 days, or longer on customer payments. Not knowing when or if a payment is coming, makes it difficult for owners and managers to plan for the future, especially when it involves money.
Invoice factoring eliminates the waiting for customer payments by providing immediate cash for invoices. Many service companies use factoring to speed up their cash flow and have money available to take on new projects, keep their equipment maintained, and add employees.
Pecos Sand & Hauling is a frac sand hauling operation in the Permian Basin. The company was in the middle of a couple of jobs for its customers. One day, Chris the owner of Pecos Sand & Hauling was approached about a new opportunity, bigger than any the company had done before.
In order to take the opportunity, Chris needed to add both trucks and drivers to his company. Chris knew it was going to be a balancing act financially because of the inconsistent cash flow due to waiting for his customers to pay. He needed a source of consistent and reliable cash to meet his growing payroll and to cover the expenses of the additional equipment.
After searching online, Chris discovered invoice factoring with Scale Funding. He talked to us about his situation and learned how factoring would benefit his operation. Shortly after the end of the call, Chris received a quote for a factoring line that would meet his weekly cash needs and allow for future growth.
