Bizcash and Debtsource
When two well run and knowledgeable companies in their respective fields join forces to offer clients a broader range of solutions, you can only expect great things to happen.
Combining the technology of the Bizcash platform with their specialities in selective invoice discounting and business loans together with Debtsource’s experience in credit and risk management, this powerhouse team of experts puts the control back into the hands of business owners as they assist them with cash flow challenges, management of bad debts, risk management and corporate governance.
The common thread with both companies is their passion to work hand in hand with their clients as a true financial services partner.
So often the owners of SME companies need a partner to work with them, with their company’s best interest at heart.
The simplicity of the Bizcash platform, allows business owners to self-manage their finances, invoices, loans and repayments in a user friendly manner with all the required information available at a glance and at their fingertips.
“I have worked with the team at Deb
stource for a number of years and this partnership was a logical next step in growing both of our companies, and helping small businesses excel” said Sean Waywell, CEO of Alternative Finance Solutions. “Our businesses complement each other so well and we have the same vision for the future of South African companies.”
“For all the good that Debtsource can do to help companies manage their credit extension processes as efficiently as possible, there will still be times when there is cashflow pressure” said Frank Knight, CEO of Debtsource.
“It is for these moments in the growth curve of any business that the Debtsource / Bizcash partnership becomes invaluable.
Debtsource helps our clients implement and manage effective credit process, while Bizcash provides the funding. It just makes sense.”
