Neu-Isenburg, 29.08.2022–efcom gmbh has signed a close partnership with Software Group (SoftwareGroup.com) and factoring fintech company Advanced Mobile Factoring Solutions–AFMS (mobile-factoring.com). The aim is to provide financial institutions with an end-to-end factoring platform that enables faster, better and easier access to working capital financing for businesses of all sizes in the global supply chain.
The strategic alliance brings together еfcom’s core factoring systems with AMFS’ mFactor–the world’s first end-to-end digital factoring solution–to fully and seamlessly digitise the supply chain financing process. The platform is already used by some of the world’s largest financial institutions, helping them to grow their factoring client base and volume while keeping operational and credit risks under control.
“We also expect this trend-setting cooperation to lead to a remarkable expansion of our partner network around the world,” affirms Federico Avellán Borgmeyer, Chief Partner Officer at efcom. “While our existing customers in Central Europe will benefit from mfactor’s functionalities right away, it will enable all of us to provide interested parties with our first-class factoring solutions, i.e. with direct presence not just from Germany and Spain, but also from Software Group’s regional offices in Bulgaria, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Philippines, India, Australia, Mexico, Egypt and the United States of America providing direct commercial and technical support across all continents.”
While the present economic situation is expected to increase companies’ cash flow needs and the demand for a distant way of doing business, the alliance will enable factoring providers to offer their clients (both Sellers and Buyers) a faster and completely paperless process coupled with a superior user experience. Financial institutions wishing to launch a factoring business will also benefit from the team’s decades of experience in pioneering and successfully monetizing critical innovations in the factoring industry.
The strategic plan of the partners involves increasing the platform´s adoption in mature European markets as well as expanding the offering to other markets and supporting financial institutions that wish to launch factoring business by providing Factoring as a Service.
