Many companies turn to accounts receivable financing, also known as invoice factoring, as a cash-flow solution. Instead of waiting for 30, 60 or even 90 days or more for customer payment, our Fresno invoice factoring programs pay you the day you’re ready to invoice.
Get the cash you need in just three easy steps.
Once we receive your invoices, we’ll deposit up to 95 percent of your invoice directly into your bank account.
When your customer pays the invoice 30, 60 or 90-plus days later, we’ll remit the remaining percentage, minus a small fee for our services.
One of the many reasons customers choose Scale Funding is because we offer custom and flexible programs. We’re able to provide the cash companies need to maintain and grow their businesses.
|If you’re waiting on slow-paying customers and want to eliminate your cash-flow gap, our Fresno invoice factoring programs are your answer.
|If you’re growing quicker than your customers are paying their invoices, we’ll speed up your cash flow so you’re able to keep up with business demands.
|It can be difficult for start-ups to obtain sufficient working capital from a bank with little-to-no financial history. Scale Funding looks at the financial stability of your customers to determine how much.
|If the bank turned you down because of bad credit, maxed-credit or less-than-perfect credit, turn to our Fresno factoring company programs. We look at the creditworthiness of your customers rather than yours.
Since 1994, we’ve helped many business-to-business industries speed up their cash flow with our invoice factoring and accounts-receivable financing programs. Below are just a few of the industries our team specializes in.
Fresno is located near the geographical center of California and in relatively close proximity to several major urban and recreation centers in the state. Because it sits at the junction of Highways 99 and 41, it serves as a primary gateway for Los Angeles residents coming to visit Yosemite. Fresno is also an entrance into Sierra National Forest and Sequoia and Kings Canyon. There are three large public parks in the city with gardens, walking trails, and picnic areas.
Fresno’s terrain is generally flat, with a sharp rise to the Sierra Nevada Mountains about 15 miles to the east. The weather is most often sunny. Summers are hot and dry, and winters are mild to chilly and rainy. Most people find spring and fall quite pleasant in Fresno.
The original San Joaquin Valley inhabitants were the Yokuts people, who took part in trading with other Native American tribes in the area including the Chumash of the Central California Coast. Fresno County was formed after the California Gold Rush, in 1856. The county used to be larger than it is now, as it first comprised not only its current area but also the areas that are now Madera County and parts of Kings, San Benito, Mono, and Inyo Counties. Millerton became the county seat after settlers moved to the area. In December of 1867, the San Joaquin River flooded, inundating Millerton. Some residents moved away but others rebuilt.
In 1867, Anthony “McQueen” Easterby bought land that is known today as the Sunnyside District. Because of a lack of water, he couldn’t grow wheat, and so he hired Moses J. Church to create an irrigation system. Church formed the Fresno Canal and Irrigation Company by purchasing existing ditches and building new canals in the area. Shortly after that, the Central Pacific Railroad opened a station near Easterby’s, which by then was a highly productive wheat farm.
Before long, there was a store near the station and the town of Fresno (then called Fresno Station) began to develop. Millerton residents, worried about flooding and attracted to the convenience of the railroad, began moving to the new community. Fresno became incorporated in 1885. By the early 1900s, the Fresno Traction Company had over 49 miles of track and 47 operational streetcars. Soon, the Friant Dam was completed and the Millerton site was inundated by Millerton Lake’s waters. Today, during extreme droughts, the reservoir shrinks and ruins of Millerton can still be seen.
Fresno is the top agricultural city in the US thanks to its fertile land, rivers, lakes, and mountains, and agriculture is its backbone. About 20 percent of the city’s workforce is employed in this industry, which provides over $3.5 billion for the local economy. A huge proportion of the country’s produce is grown in Central Valley. More than 7,500 farmers grow hundreds of different types of crops on a million acres of hugely productive farmland. Some of the major crops include cattle, turkeys, grapes, cotton, tomatoes, plums, milk, peaches, oranges, and nectarines. The agricultural activity has prompted the development of a large food-processing industry and numerous canning, drying, freezing and curing plants have their homes in this area.
Fresno is also an ideal location for manufacturing and distribution because of its proximity to 35 million people. Manufacturing concerns in the area include metal products, farm machinery, transportation equipment, electrical equipment, and furniture and fixtures. Other important economic sectors include government, service, and trade.
There are also several development projects that contribute to the local economy. Most significantly in recent years, the Save Mart Center on the Fresno State University campus opened in 2003 as a venue for not only Fresno State home basketball games but also national touring concert acts. The area has also been revitalized by several developments downtown such as the Tower at Convention Center Court and other office towers. The Fresno Yosemite International Airport is also a direct port of entry for international freight shipments to and from the region.
The ash trees for which Fresno was named used to flourish along the city’s riverbanks. Now, in the heart of California, Fresno sits between San Francisco and Los Angeles and blends the urban influences of the two with the rural influences of nearby Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite National Parks. Fresno is a culturally diverse city with a variety of neighborhoods, restaurants, festivals, and museums. In Fresno, you’ll find everything from high-rises and designer fashion to parks and hiking trails as well as a melting pot of ethnic heritages.
When it comes to museums, Fresno does not disappoint. Visitors and residents looking for a cultural experience can visit several different cultural museums, such as Arte America, a celebration of the arts in California as well as Mexico and Latin America. This center shares its knowledge of different cultures and art forms and is also a home for Latino arts to be displayed, performed, recited, taught and preserved. Or, take in demonstrations of quilting and rug making at the Mennonite Quilting Center. The African-American Cultural and Historical Museum offers permanent and rotating displays related to the lives of San Joaquin Valley African-American leaders and hosts national and local touring exhibits and events throughout the year. Or participate in a walking tour that incorporates art, history, architecture, and food in the About Town Taste: Walking Tours of Fresno. Experience historic buildings and locally owned restaurants on a guided tour of the city.
As a large city with abundant sunshine, Fresno offers plenty of things to do for people of all ages. The Fresno Chaffee Zoo offers an engaging learning environment and inspirational views of the natural world. Educational adventures and exciting animal habitats make this a must-see attraction for families and individuals in the area. Or experience the Forestiere Underground Gardens, a hand-built network of underground courtyards, passageways, and rooms boasting unique vines, shrubs, and trees – some of which are nearly 100 years old. When summer really heats up, take a trip to Island Waterpark and enjoy waterslides, raft rides, and a lazy river.
For some indoor fun, take in some historical architecture and culture at the Kearney Mansion Museum, the St. George Greek Orthodox Church, or the St. Johns Cathedral of Fresno. Beer lovers will find plenty of entertainment in the city as well. Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company, in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, is a craft brewery that makes world class beers from golden ales to imperial stouts. Visitors can enjoy a fresh brew and even pick up a growler or other merchandise for fun. If wine is more your speed, you can check out a local winery such as Moravia Wines. More than a winery, Moravia Wines also offers a farmer’s market, outdoor movie nights, dance lessons, painting, and more.
No matter how old you are or whether you’re traveling with a large family or alone, you’ll find plenty to keep you occupied in Fresno, from learning about its history to exploring the modern attractions in the area.
