Earn supplier discounts for early payments – when you want to


With the PROACTIS Accelerated Payment Facility (APF) you can offer all your suppliers the opportunity to receive early payments in exchange for discounts on invoice amounts. Then you can decide if, when and to what extent you want to participate in that early payment and discount. When you want to internally finance early payments with your own working capital, you can do so to earn an above market rate of return.  When you want to hold your payments as long as possible, you can do that too – and we will finance the early payment through our 3rd party source. Or you can participate in any given transaction to whatever extent you wish.

It’s always up to you based on how you want to use your working capital at any point in time
.   

Enhance supplier relationships by helping them with cash flow – when they need it


Once registered for the Accelerated Payment Facility (APF), suppliers can decide if they want to take early payments on an invoice-by-invoice basis.

It’s a tremendous tool for them, just as it is for you. When cash flow is tight for a supplier, they can simply request early payment in return for a clearly stated discount.  It’s always available to them and always their choice. 

No setup fee, no complicated documentation, cash received same day or next working day. Suppliers will appreciate the flexibility you’ve offered them and consider you to be “easier to do business with” than ever before.

Just turn it on and watch the income flow


The PROACTIS Accelerated Payment Facility (APF) couldn’t be easier. We provide all the technology, day-to-day management and 3rd party financing.

We can even help you reach out to suppliers to explain the benefits and how easy it is to participate. All you need to do is decide when you want to take the discounts with internally financed early payments and when you don’t. It’s as easy as that – a new source of income with virtually no effort and no risk at all.
