Dynamic discounting built for the field
Drive construction projects forward with greater certainty of delivery and improved supply chain resilience. Our software combines dynamic discount trading with competitive price setting, automating at-scale early settlements from contractors to subcontractors. This means more confidence and control throughout the project lifecycle.
Set up your Earlytrade portal — our customised, cloud-based supplier portal and B2B platform that seamlessly connects to any ERP.
Registered suppliers are able to view approved invoices, payment due dates and plan with greater confidence. Determine payment limits to allow for on-demand early settlement.
Deliver more control and confidence for your suppliers with no third party involvement. Those who opt for on-demand early settlements will be paid directly by you, as their business requires.
- Customers determine the amount of cash made available for early payment, and can adjust this at any time, you are in control of this throughout the year in response to their own working capital position
- Funds never flow through Earlytrade, and you maintain control over your invoice processing and payments
- Earlytrade enables customers to pay their supply chain early, in exchange for discounts, improving liquidity and reducing risk of insolvency
- It’s an ethical solution:
- Empowers suppliers to own their cash flow, and maintain full discretion on how and when they participate;
- Easily accessible and a competitive alternative to expensive traditional supply chain finance
- Improved transparency and efficiency – Earlytrade enables suppliers to easily view the status of their invoices, driving a ~60% reduction in inbound Accounts Payable (AP) queries
- Earlytrade is not supply chain finance – No third parties, no factoring of debt, no change in payment terms
- Quick system launch – Earlytrade can interface will all major construction Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) providers, including Viewpoint, JDE, Cheops & Coins
- Network benefits – With over 90,000 subcontractors and suppliers already using Earlytrade, customers enjoy substantial and immediate utilisation
- Increase project margins – early payments attract a discount that improve your project margins significantly
- Put your capital to work – utilise undeployed cash, at zero risk, to attract discounts that offer superior returns to traditional term deposits
