Here's why: Approval for invoice factoring doesn't hinge on your company's credit history. Instead, it depends on the creditworthiness of your customers. Companies that purchase invoices will evaluate your customers based on their stability and payment track record. The invoice factoring company's main concern is determining how likely your customers will pay and how quickly. Apart from your customers meeting qualifications, your invoices must also pass certain criteria. There can't be any existing primary liens on your invoices, meaning no other company should have a claim on the payments once they arrive. This ensures that the company purchasing your invoices has a clear right to collect the funds in your place.
Dealing with this volume in a manual operation was causing several problems. Invoice processing was extremely paper intensive; a considerable amount of time and effort was spent data inputting, chasing paper invoices and filing. It was often difficult to locate invoices and the AP team would waste time contacting the business users to trace invoices. This resulted in a lack of efficiency and a lack of control over the process. There had also been an issue of making a number of duplicate payments.
