3 Invoice Factoring Services You Should Know

3 Invoice Factoring Services You Should Know

Invoice factoring is one of the solutions for short term issues in cash flow. Suppose you need cash right away, but customers can’t pay for services or goods until later; this is where invoice factoring, along with invoice financing, can convert your unpaid invoices into faster cash. But don’t consider invoice factoring as loan. It is a process in which you sell your invoices at a discount to any invoice factoring company; in exchange, the company will give you lump sum cash.

In turn, now the factoring company owns your invoices, and they get paid when they collect from your customer, who has a stipulated time period of 30 to 90 days. The discount rate can vary from 1-5%, depending on invoice amount. The pros in this case are easy approval, fast cash, and improved cash flow. However, it is also costly, you lose direct control, and a customer’s bad credits can derail your finances.

Here are three resources that can help you with your invoice factoring.

1. FactoringClub

FactoringClub is a web directory service that provides you with in depth information about invoice factoring companies, such as locations, descriptions, credit facilities, terms, services, industries served, contact information, features, and more. Any business owner looking for accounts receivable financing will find the right invoice factoring company to cater their needs on the FactoringClub site. It can help you find a company based on location, name, keywords, and industry.

Finding the right factoring company for your business requires common sense and research. You can find companies with specialties in accounts receivable financing, commercial finance, purchase order financing, invoice factoring, equipment financing, and asset based lending.

FactoringClub helps you save time and stress. People tend to rely on reviews to find realistic insights of companies, but reviews may not always be true; FactoringClub gives you the option to talk their reputable factoring brokers, who can provide you with an unbiased opinion about any factoring company listed on FactoringClub, or they can recommend you a factoring company based on your needs.

After providing the details of your business, you can compare the cost of different factoring companies, which will determine a cost based on how much you intend to spend per month, expected average invoices, days outstanding, and customer credit.

It has solid eligibility requirements and customer support systems, and offers stellar features, non-recourse factoring, and no commitment minimums, which makes it great for business.

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

Joe’s Goals

    Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

    Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.

    Daytum

      Daytum

      is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.

      Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

      Excel or Numbers

        If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

        What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.

        Evernote

        Advertising

          I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

          Evernote is free with a premium version available.

          Access or Bento

            If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

            Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.

            Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

            All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.

            Conclusion

            I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

            What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
