“I need enough credit with my suppliers to allow them to sell to me, and enough credit on account to enable me to sell to my customers. Effective cashflow management keeps us in business.” - Joe Hemani, Owner & Chairman, Westcoast
With longer payment terms for their customers than those offered by their suppliers, cash was going out of Westcoast more quickly than it was coming in. As a consequence, they weren’t able to purchase optimum levels of stock without incurring hefty rates of interest.
“The American Express team quickly understood our business and the market we were targeting and knew what was required to launch this product.” - Phil Rice, Aggregate Industries UK
AI was looking for an innovative payments and working capital solution that would allow the company to drive business growth, accelerate cashflow, and create competitive differentiation for AI within the building materials sector. It had to be cost effective, and satisfy strict audit, legal and compliance criteria.
“American Express gives us the option to pay suppliers earlier than our standard terms. This has supported our supply chain relationships, with minimal impact to our existing processes.” - Angus Scott, ACMA, GMA, Group Financial Controller, Clancy Docwra Ltd
As part of Clancy Docwra’s growth strategy, cashflow needed to be tightly managed to support their expansion opportunities. To offer suppliers an option for earlier payment, they required a simple but effective payments solution that would harmonise with their existing cashflow and invoice procedures.
