Rupert explained to us that funding was required for the development and growth of his businesses.
Rupert initially contacted Just Cashflow as he required funding. He was concerned about late payments from clients and ensuring he had sufficient funds so that both his employees, freelancers and suppliers were always paid on time. This is a common issue many businesses both large and small face on a day-to-day basis.
Whilst the businesses did not require the funding immediately, Rupert realised being prepared was a crucial factor in his business plan. Following conversations with the Just Cashflow team and explaining the foresight for his business finance the Revolving Cash Facility was put in place providing a solution to ensure that all financial commitments could be met on time.
Rupert went on to explain that his business plan had identified significant potential growth in the first quarter of 2017, however, there would be a requirement in additional investment to facilitate this growth and it was for this reason he contacted us once again. In September 2016, following a conversation with Jamie Davies of the Just Cashflow Business Growth team, areas of the business were identified as requiring investment and additional funding, these included IT software, website development and marketing.
With Jamie's help, Rupert was able to access the funds required to grow his business in a structured, responsible manner.
Rupert had been introduced to Just Cashflow via a third party and following a direct conversation with the team he concluded we would be the right lender for his business.
Initially Rupert was a little confused as to which product would be best for him and his business. However, the team was able to assist him so that he was able to find the best solution for his business.
Upon speaking with Jamie for the second round funding, the BusinessPlus Mastercard® Card was identified as being beneficial to the business, not only for the funding required, but the additional benefits the facility offer including EmploymentPlus, which provides access to the HR documents you need to comply with UK legislation and ProtectPlus, a free Legal and Tax 24/7 helpline to help to protect your business.
Having the funding in place has given Rupert the confidence that in January his business will be able to grow from a position of strength and ensuring he has no cash constraints.
When asked about the Just Cashflow service Rupert was impressed by the service received. He said we were quick to make decisions compared to other lenders he has previously dealt with in the past.
He explained that we were not a bureaucratic organization and in his words "a pleasure to deal with"; the process was hassle free, without exposing either party to undue risk.
From a customer's perspective, Rupert explained in his opinion we had refined the application process, eliminating a lot of red tape that he has previously undergone with other lenders. He acknowledged that whilst the process was quick and effective, he also noted we are a responsible lender ensuring that he had the ability and security to repay any funds.
Rupert also explained that a key factor in the process was speaking to decision makers, this cut out a lot of time wasted.
Rupert explained to us that following his first experience with Just Cashflow it gave him confidence to return and talk with us about further funding and his business plans.
Rupert would definitely work with Just Cashflow again and has signed up as an introducer for his clients who are looking for an alternative form of funding.
Having used the service and speaking with the Just Cashflow team, Rupert explained he was reassured that his clients would be provided with a first class service. He has the confidence that clients with limited trading history would be considered as Just Cashflow looks at the business figures from a different perspective than that of many lenders. He commented further that the continued support of the Business Growth team, in particular Jamie Davies, demonstrates that Just Cashflow is a responsible lender that wants to work with businesses to help them grow.Who have we funded?
