The drive for orders in the lead up to the financial year end is important for both suppliers and members of their sales team alike. SAF is as much a commercially driven sales organisation as it is a provider of bespoke finance solutions, we therefore place great emphasis in the support we provide to our retained suppliers in the lead up to financial year-end.
SAF understands that a proactive approach to sales opportunities along with an ability to work to tight deadlines and an efficient administration process are all key to getting deals over the line in time for suppliers to recognise a sale for year-end.
SAF have been working with global medical technology provider Hill-Rom for over 10 years. During this time, we have consistently supported Hill-Rom in their push to meet their year-end targets. This year SAF secured 3 orders with a value totalling in excess of £270,000, having only several days to structure the finance, obtain customer approval, credit approval, the raising and signing of documentation and purchase orders, allowing the supplier to process the order and deliver the equipment.
The added value of SAF's services provided to our retained suppliers goes far beyond branded financing solutions. We see ourselves as an extension of the supplier's sales function and a key commercial resource for the senior management team.
Year-end often keenly demonstrates our tenacity and reliability in getting deals done.
