Get the cash your business needs today to maintain and grow operations with our Arlington invoice factoring and accounts-receivable financing programs.
Invoice factoring is commonly referred to as accounts-receivable financing. The process works by selling your invoices at a discount to a factoring company in exchange for an advance of your invoice. Instead of waiting 30 days or more for customer payment, you’ll have the cash almost instantly. Once your customer pays the invoice, the factoring company remits the remaining balance into your account, minus a factoring fee.
While there are many factoring companies in Arlington, Scale Funding offers many benefits including same-day funding, high advances, low rates and additional back-office support services at no extra cost to you.

Arlington is the 50th largest city in the United States and the 7th largest in Texas. According to the latest estimate by the U.S. Census bureau in 2015, Arlington’s city population is around 388,000 which is up approximately 23,000 from the 2010 census. Arlington is part of the larger Dallas-Ft. Worth-Arlington metro area which had an estimated population above 7 million in 2015. The metro area has grown in excess of 676,000 people since the 2010 census. Why the increasing growth?
Arlington’s active economy can be attributed to its wide array of industry sectors including healthcare, education, recreation, manufacturing, aerospace, and financial and banking. Because of the unique location of Arlington, between Fort Worth and Dallas, the city is accessed by over 3.4 million skilled workers according to the City of Arlington. There are no Fortune 500 company headquarters in the City of Arlington however there are over 18 in neighboring Dallas and Fort Worth.
The healthcare sector is dominated by Arlington’s largest employer, Texas Health Resources, which is a non-profit organization that manages many area hospitals and health facilities. Facilities managed by Texas Health Resources include 17 acute-care hospitals, six short-stay hospitals, one transitional care hospital, and one rehabilitation hospital.
With Arlington Independent School District and the University of Texas at Arlington taking the number two and three spot for top employers in the area, it comes as no surprise that education is an expansive industry sector. There is a combined total of over 16,000 educators, administrators, and staff employed by the two educational institutions, serving more than 153 campuses and close to 100,000 students, from grade kindergarten all the way up to post-graduate level degree seekers.
Finally, the manufacturing sector is diverse and far reaching, including both aerospace and automotive parts. General Motors Arlington Assembly Plant has a massive 4,375 million square foot space of realty in the city that is seen as a strategic home in the automotive industry because of its close proximity to Mexico. GM employs around 2,900 skilled workers who remain ready for all up and coming automotive developments.
Arlington is newer than its surrounding neighbors and dates back to the early 1840s. Following a battle between Texas General Edward Tarrant and the Caddo Indians, a trading post was recognized at Marrow Bone Spring, present-day Arlington, by Colonel Tate Johnson. This became a frequent stop for stagecoaches, mail, and traveling politicians.
The early enticement of the area was the rich soil which farmers found very fertile for various crops and cotton. In 1876, Arlington was officially founded, following along the newly built Texas and Pacific Railway. The city was named after Texan General Robert E. Lee’s house located in Arlington County, Virginia. Over the next couple of decades, the city would begin to take root, quite literally, with the start of an expansive farming center that included cotton-ginning. The city’s location was ideal for farmers to grow crops with nearby water sources plentiful and the aforementioned rich soil. By 1910, Arlington saw the addition of electricity, running water, natural gas, and telephone service. The first public school system was announced in the same year. Prior to World War II, the population was estimated to be over 4,000.
The most notable time period of Arlington’s history is the 1950’s. The population went from 8,000 to 45,000 with a massive industrialization phase which included the establishment of the General Motors Assembly Plant and the growing aerospace industry. Mayor Tom Vandergriff, who served as mayor for 25 years, was instrumental in kick starting the recreation and entertainment venues Arlington is famous for. After Disneyland was built in California, Vandergriff wanted to create the same opportunity for his city and in 1961, Six Flags Over Texas was opened. The Wet ‘n Wild water park, now Hurricane Harbor, soon followed along with the Rangers Ballpark and most recently, AT&T Stadium. The entertainment district of present-day Arlington has grown significantly over the years in attractions, restaurants, and crowds, bringing in over 6.5 million visitors per year.
Arlington and the 40-mile radius surrounding the city is home to more than 40 colleges, universities, and higher education institutions. The most prominent include the University of Texas at Arlington, Arlington Baptist College, Tarrant County College – Southeast, and the B.H. Carroll Theological Institute.

The Levitt Pavilion Arlington offers over 50 free concerts per year and is located in downtown Arlington.
The Parks Mall at Arlington features many retail outlets, restaurants, an ice skating rink, and a movie theater. The Arlington Highlands and The Lincoln Square are two other popular retail sites offering outlet-style shopping. Finally, the Arlington Highlands, known as an “entertainment hotspot”, is filled with entertainment oriented restaurants like Studio Movie Grill, The Improv Theatre, and Dave and Busters.
As previously mentioned, Arlington is home to a professional baseball team, the Texas Rangers, and a professional football team, the Dallas Cowboys. The newest addition to the professional team lineup is the Dallas Wings, which became the first Women’s National Basketball Association franchise in North Texas. College teams in the area include the UT Arlington Mavericks and the Arlington Baptist College Patriots.
