Have you thought about using a vendor finance program?
If you are looking to improve the number of sales then a vendor finance program can be the solution. It will give your customers another option to help them purchase your equipment.
So where do you start?
To help you implement your own vendor finance program I’m going to take the time to talk to you about details of a vendor finance program and how it can help your business.
Details About Having A Vendor Finance Program
So you’re interested in learning more about having a vendor finance program. Before we dive into the nitty gritty, let’s start off with...
What Is A Vendor Finance Program
A vendor finance program is a lending program where a company lends money to be used by the borrower (customer) to buy a property or products like equipment and machines. It is a program meant for helping vendors increase sales by giving your customers more options.
That sounds well and good… but what does it really mean?
Let’s walk through a example. You’re looking to have your business sell more equipment. One of the objections that one of your customers may have is that they want to preserve their capital instead of buying expensive machinery.
With a vendor finance program, you can offer your own financing. That way the customer can preserve their capital and still have the benefits of using the equipment.
A vendor finance program will help improve cash flow and liquidity for the vendor. While the vendor improves these cash flows and liquidity, the program will be able to provide your customers predictable, low monthly payments along with some flexible pay structures.
Benefits Of A Vendor Finance Program
There are a lot of benefits you can get from a vendor finance program.
- You can increase your return on investment.
- You get to increase your revenues by having repeat sales.
- You can also be able to close sales easier when you have this program available. This is probably the biggest benefit you can get from a vendor finance program.
- The vendor finance program will help “unlock” the capital normally locked in the unsold equipment. You’ll then be able to manufacture more equipment or make additional investments into your business.
- You can also gain interest payments through the loan. You’ll be earning interest on the balance of the loan through the course of your borrower’s repayment period. Often the interest payments will be greater than traditional financial institutions, allowing you to make a return on the borrowed funds.
Why You Should Get A Vendor Finance Program
Besides the benefits I’ve already listed, there are several reasons why you should consider a vendor finance program that is coordinated outside your own business.
A vendor finance program helps you boost your business’ productivity. Having a financial partner help you manage your vendor finance program removes the administrative burden of managing your own equipment financing. It eliminates the need to hire new employees.
