One of the things we have been asked about many times is whether we are able to assist our clients with providing facilities for their businesses to accept payments from their customers on finance.
We totally understand that it can be a tricky – and frustrating – situation for many small-medium sized businesses to try and obtain finance options. A lot of the more mainstream lenders require large minimum payment thresholds that make it next to impossible for a number of businesses to be able to use their services. Not only this but there are a number of potentially complex financial regulatory considerations which can be an obstacle for many companies.
Nevertheless, as providers of financial services to the glazing sector, we at GGFi have spent a lot of time looking into this as we believe it is something that could be of significant value to our members' customers. We are therefore pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with Improveasy, a firm that specialises in providing finance options to the glazing sector, irrespective of the size of the business in question.
Improveasy has a proven track record of being able to provide businesses with competitive finance packages. Signing up with Improveasy is a simple process and once on board, a company then has the potential to roll out the option of paying by finance across its whole customer base. This has been proven to increase sales and drive revenue for businesses which is why we are so keen to promote this to our clients.
The benefits include:
- 0% interest-free finance available
- A ‘buy now, pay later’ option
- 10 year finance options
- Offering finance over the phone or face-to-face
- No requirement for FCA authorisation - Improveasy will take care of this
- Full training provided
- Free of charge ongoing training
Finance applications are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and Improveasy will provide an instant credit decision within seconds. An application only takes a few minutes to complete. This is done by you (the installer) and your customer - no need to pass your valued customer to anyone else. Everything is done online and there’s no ‘paper’ in the paperwork so your carbon conscience is also made easy.
Improveasy Key Accounts Manager Adrian Hicks commented: "We are incredibly excited to be working alongside GGFi – and the other GGF Group Companies – to provide our specifically-tailored finance solutions to their membership. For too long have finance solutions been out of the reach of many businesses and Improveasy unique services help change that and level the playing field."
"Our onboarding process for companies is simple and straightforward – we take care of all of the complicated, time consuming regulatory considerations. We just want to get businesses up and running so they can start providing flexible finance packages to their customers as soon as possible."
"We’d urge anyone interested to get in touch so we can start discussions as soon as possible. It really can make a big difference to your business and provide you with a platform to take things to the next level."
Anyone who wishes to take this further should simply call Improveasy directly on 0800 024 8505 and select ‘option 1’. Please be aware that this facility is only available to GGFi businesses, GGF Members or companies registered with FENSA. If you have any specific questions for GGFi, as ever, you can drop us a line on 020 7645 3743 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
