Manufacturers often operate on tight margins and deal with fluctuating demand. They need to manage inventory, handle machinery maintenance, and ensure timely delivery of products. Cash flow becomes crucial, especially when they receive large orders that require immediate procurement of raw materials.
A manufacturer lands a significant contract to produce a new line of products. To fulfil this order, they need to purchase a substantial amount of raw materials and possibly even upgrade some machinery. However, the payment terms for the contract are net-60 days, and the manufacturer doesn't have the immediate liquidity to cover these upfront costs. The implications are severe:
Without the necessary funds, the manufacturer risks not fulfilling the order on time, leading to potential contract breaches and lost future business.
Delays in production can tarnish the manufacturer's reputation, making it harder to secure future contracts.
The inability to manage cash flow effectively can lead to financial instability, affecting other aspects of the business, from payroll to routine operational costs.
Manufacturers needs a financial solution that allows them to access funds quickly, without the lengthy approval processes or collateral requirements of traditional banks.
