Challenges experienced by enterprise buyers and suppliers

Buyers
Suppliers
  • Balancing priorities of maintaining days payable with strengthening supplier relationships
  • Addressing persistent follow-ups from suppliers for invoice payments
  • Negotiating cash discounts for early payments bilaterally with each individual supplier
  • Early payments to suppliers can exert pressure on working capital 
  • Mismatched receivables and payables cycles
  • Long receivables cycles exert pressure on a supplier’s ability to meet financial commitments
  • Pressure on funding limits a supplier’s ability to pursue business growth
  • Traditional lending burdens a business with debt and can fall short of business requirements due to credit quality limitations
  • Traditional lending may require collateral, guarantees and incurrence of fixed costs
  • Reliance on informal lending sources can prove to be prohibitively expensive
  • To manage liquidity, suppliers rely on early payments in an ad hoc manner in the absence of an organized program

Our Platform Explained

The Early Payment Program for Suppliers is offered on a digital marketplace anchored around each enterprise client

The marketplace is accessible to the client’s suppliers and participating financial institutions

Clients seamlessly upload approved invoices onto the CredAble platform and suppliers participate by requesting early payment of listed invoices

For each invoice, suppliers choose a date of payment and specify a flat percentage discount in exchange for the early payment

When an early payment request is accepted by a participating enterprise client, the CredAble platform facilitates the early payment on the selected date into the supplier’s account
