How to find funding in a fluctuating economy

Posted By: respadmin | August 18, 2017

Since the economy tends to fluctuate relatively regularly, this naturally brings about changes in every industry — in turn affecting the staffing firms from which these industries source their labor.

While poor economic conditions might only inflict limited damage upon a staffing firm, other companies often use staffing services instead of hiring permanently to minimize risk. On the other hand, a booming economy can bring about an increase in business significant enough that the staffing firm may need substantially more funding than the amount it usually requires. This isn’t always attainable through standard methods, and turning to industry-specific financing options, like those offered through AGR, can become both necessary and greatly beneficial in the long run.

Following are available options you may want to consider:

Streamline the payment process — This method is simple: if your customers are left with as few loopholes as possible when it comes to paying up, you’ll get your cash faster. Late payments are always a problem, and ensuring that your customers are reliable, and addressing those who are not, is a good way to make certain that you’re not left waiting for payments for months on end.

Manage working capital across your company – This involves forming comprehensive plans to monitor working capital on every level of the organization, which will boost efficiency while making it easy to spot problem areas and devise ways to fix them.

Weigh your funding options – It’s important – and sometimes difficult – to remember that large banks aren’t the only place where businesses can acquire funding. Some alternatives, such as AGR Financial, not only offer working capital financing, but can deliver indispensable financial advice in the process.

Keep capital use as transparent as possible – In this case, the primary benefit of transparency is that it’s easier to see exactly where your company’s capital is going. Boosting transparency makes it much easier to observe working capital use across the board, potentially exposing areas where it’s being used ineffectively.

Whatever your needs, AGR Financial can help you find funding. Read more about programs designed specifically for the staffing industry.
