Supply Chain Finance

Higher liquidity and stronger Working Capital: through extended payment terms and an optimized financing of the supply chain.

Principles

Financial strength through optimized payables

We develop solutions to finance sustainable growth of the entire supply chain: Buyers can extend payment terms towards their suppliers while suppliers receive early payouts of qualified invoices. Buyers and suppliers both benefit from optimized cash flow and Working Capital.

Buyers realize longer payment terms

Buyers extend their payment terms towards their suppliers by offering an attractive financing option. They benefit from higher liquidity and optimized Working Capital.

Suppliers receive early payouts

Suppliers receive early payouts of approved invoices based on the cflox financing solution. They benefit from higher liquidity at attractive terms.

Platform

How we make a difference.
The cflox platform for Supply Chain Finance

cflox is different: we facilitate flexible and comfortable financing within the supply chain. No matter if you engage with just a few or rather a few hundred suppliers or if you need to submit only a handful or thousands of invoices – we process data digitally, lean, and secure. Flexible interfaces, instant roll-out and onboarding, and comprehensive services make the difference and minimize your operative effort.

Control

Faster and more direct than financing options that do not let you control cash flow and liquidity dynamically.

Flexibility

More adaptable implementation and flexible utilization than fixed financing instruments that do not adapt to your needs.

Efficiency

More powerful than solutions that are not tailored to the specific Working Capital requirements of your individual business model.

Simplicity

Faster, more flexible, and more comfortable than bank solutions regarding setup, operation, and direct service access.

Usage

Financing the growth of procurement volume and inventory

“Our goal is to achieve a constant double-digit annual growth rate. One of the main challenges is our procurement and inventory – managing our Working Capital. cflox allows us to realize high Days Payables Outstanding and thereby minimizes the necessary investment in Working Capital.”

CEO, E-commerce

Single order financing

“To maintain low production costs, we need to place bulk orders instead of small individual batches. These large orders must be temporarily financed. With cflox, we implement the flexible and dynamic financing that is best for our order process.”

Finance, Retail

Financing seasonal demand peaks

“Our business model comes with seasonally volatile liquidity. Before our peak season, we need to invest in order to grow successfully. The cash outflow is early while the cash inflow occurs months later. Banks have difficulties understanding and adapting to our financing needs – we therefore successfully implemented an alternative financing solution.”

Customer example

Case Study: Optimized supplier payment terms

The goal was to help a thriving e-commerce company finance its growing operations: the payment terms towards their suppliers were systematically extended. To negotiate these with large supplier corporations, the client offered them the early payout through the cflox financing solution. This systematic campaign can increase the average payment term from 23 to 60 days and thereby freed up liquidity and strengthened the Working Capital for future growth. Existing procurement and invoicing processes remained the same.

Day 1

Order and delivery

The client places an order using their regular standard procurement process. The suppliers deliver the goods or services and send the corresponding invoices.

Day 8

Invoice activation on the cflox platform

The client activates the invoice on the cflox platform. This can be done manually or through an automated interface to the ERP system.

Day 23

Payout to suppliers

The suppliers receive their payment at the agreed short payment term. The payment is authorized via the cflox financing facility.

Day 60

Payment by buyer

The client pays his invoices within the new long payment term. Until then the Working Capital is strengthened by increasing the trade payables.
