As one of the premier factoring companies in Houston, Catamount Funding, Inc. understand that there are times when the day-to-day business of running a company conflicts with the amount of cash available at that time. One of the primary reasons can be waiting for outstanding invoices to be paid. The time lag between sending out an invoice and receiving payment may be as long as 90 days. In that time the cost of materials may rise, repairs may be needed on essential equipment, and salaries are a priority when good staff is hard to retain. These problems can strike at any time in the life of a business, particularly challenging times are at start-up and during phases of expansion. Invoice factoring companies are able to provide a number of services which can help alleviate cash flow problems. One example is purchase order financing, this involves a credit advance to a supplier so that a sale can be made even when the materials are not in stock. This helps a company to maintain and strengthen relationships with existing clients as well as making it possible to forge new business ties. Each individual transaction and the probability of its success is gauged. If approval is given, the cost of the inventory is funded and Catamount can provide the necessary invoice factoring after the order has been shipped and invoiced. Catamount's team of experts have experience across many industries and they offer accounts receivable factoring services, purchase order financing, and freight factoring services across multiple service regions within the USA. When getting loan approval is difficult, factoring is a safe and easy way to get the funding required to keep a business on track.
