While business forecasts and projections can point to ballpark goals, revenue cycles themselves become rather uneven when analyzed on a more granular level. Sale figures fluctuate. For businesses that issue invoices with payment schedules of 30 days or longer, smoothing out uneven revenue cycles can go a long way towards growth and overall success.

The transportation industry serves every single business in the United States. From the food we buy at the grocery store to consumer electronics, raw construction materials, and everything in between, our economy thrives due to efficient supply chains and logistics. Yet even in the current economic climate, the transportation industry is facing growth challenges to meet rising demands from every industry.
Favorable Economic ConditionsThe reports about our strong economy have not been exaggerated. Manufacturers are producing more goods. Consumers have extra capital and are purchasing more.

There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding accounts receivable factoring. For new business owners, these myths can be very misleading, and can often engineer decision makers to get locked into debt-based agreements. New Century Financial would like to take some time to dispel some of the myths surrounding accounts receivable factoring to provide business owners with a clearer picture of how the process works and what to expect.
Myth 1: Accounts receivable factoring is only for struggling companiesThis is one of the biggest factoring myths we see on a daily basis. Accounts receivable factoring is designed so businesses can access revenue faster and build up capital reserves. Factoring corrects cash flow issues for some businesses and prevents them from occurring for others.
Myth 2: Factoring is risky, or else banks would offer itAccounts receivable factoring is one of the most stable forms of financing in existence because it is structured around tangib

Managing receivables is vital to the success of any business. When there is a constant stream of revenue, businesses can make payroll, meet overhead expenses, and even make plans to expand their operations. Mounting unpaid receivables can cause cash flow to flip upside down, and suddenly those liabilities on the balance sheet threaten to overshadow your revenue. Fortunately, there are a few ways to handle receivables to ensure constant revenue.
Down PaymentsThe idea of down payments makes a number of business owners cringe, but the practice is far from uncommon. Large orders or contracts usually require customers to pay a small part of the balance upfront before anything is delivered. In fact, managing receivables with a down payment policy ensures customers will settle the remainder of the balance on their accounts. As always, it is a good practice to be transparent about this policy before sales are made.
Late FeesOne of the biggest reasons why businesses expe

Staffing agencies are in-demand now more than ever. Manufacturers, construction companies, government offices, big data companies, and every industry in between are turning to staffing agencies to fill niche roles. For growth-focused staffing agencies, the amount of on-hand revenue can mean the difference between small local clients and being able to branch out into new territories and hiring specialized people to fill those high-paying positions. Avoiding the Revenue Crunch Staffing agencies rely heavily on the turnaround time of invoices issued to their clients. Unfortunately, the lag between issuing invoices and receiving revenue can place a strain on finances. When revenue is “in the pipeline” for 30 days or longer, staffing agencies feel a big crunch. They may not be able to pay people who are currently filling roles, and larger contracts turn into missed opportunities due to the lack of capital needed to branch into new markets. Even large staffing agen
