Success Story

We used Open InVoice Finance to help guide us in locating an asset-based lending partner. The requirement was time sensitive and there were tight time constraints. John very quickly understood the requirement and helped guide us to the best lender profile. He also had excellent insight into the optimum organisational culture fit for us. We were supported at every stage of the project and this included active engagement in developing the financials in a way which would best resonate with the lenders. As a business they were well organised, attentive, and easy to work with and consistently ensured that the project focus was maintained. Since concluding the business they have contacted us every six months to ensure things are going as we expected and have been very willing to give us further advice as we deepened our relationship with our asset lending partner. I would strongly recommend Open InVoice Finance and have no reservations in using them again should the situation so dictate.

What our clients and lenders say

We’ve worked with John for many years; his extensive industry experience means that he is extremely knowledgeable about our sector and this combined with his high level of integrity ensures that his clients are certainly in good hands.

John, Managing Director (Lender)

Without John’s input we would not have achieved the result we needed.

Karen, CEO (Client)

We were introduced to John, who took time to understand our requirements and what our company did. The result was a funding restructure with a one of the smaller, but well established London banks.

Dave, Managing Director (Client)

I was very sceptical as to what value Open InVoice Finance could give and how they would be able to find products that we couldn’t source ourselves. I couldn’t have been more wrong!

James, CEO (Client)

John is a pleasure to work with. He is very organised and thorough in his approach. He understood me and my business and ensured that he was my voice when approaching the lending market. I think that’s really important.

Pedram, Owner (Client)

John is a true industry professional and has the experience to show for it. Open InVoice are what I deem to be a true financial consultancy and not like many brokers who just forward a funding requirement to as many lenders as possible, hoping for the best.

Sunil, Owner (Client)

After approaching my network about Invoice financing I was given John’s name by a trusted ex-manager. I have no trouble referring his services to other companies whenever I have the opportunity.

Fran, Finance Director (Client)

John worked incredibly hard to get to know us. He engaged with a number of lenders on our behalf having completed an in depth review and presentation on our business. It was a really helpful process and very much value the support we received.

Tim, Director (Client)

John proved very effective in understanding our business, and rapidly assimilating the key performance drivers and financial metrics. He was then able to communicate these to the wider financial market with clarity and insight.

Philip, CEO (Client)

John kept things really simple. No fuss, I was able to quickly get things in place with John’s help.

Mark, Director (Client)

Open Invoice Finance take the time to understand their clients’ needs as well as to present a full overview and detailed report to us. John has an in depth and up to date of the market place and which funders have the appetite for the deals he presents.

Ian, Regional Sales Director (Lender)

John worked incredibly hard to pull together and complete the transaction with the chosen partner. We wouldn’t have the time nor the knowledge, so it was great to use his expertise.

Phydos, Managing Director (Client)

Our business is not one that finance companies find easy to support as we arrange stage payments on large contracts. John came up with a number of providers who were interested and which resulted in us receiving four offers of support.

John, Finance Director (Client)

John took total control of our requirement. He sourced, researched and put together the full facility. John managed the whole process from start to finish. He has since stayed in contact with us and he makes sure all is working well.

Mark, Director (Client)

It was clear from the first time I spoke with John that he knew what he was doing and knew exactly who our new funding partner ought to be. We would not have found them ourselves. I quickly had confidence and trust in his ability.

Kevin, Managing Director (Client)

John is an asset to both his client and the potential funders as his knowledge of the working capital market is second to none. With his honest approach lots of valuable time is saved in finding the right solution and matching to the appropriate lender.

Mark Sales, Director (Lender)

In my experience, John is just about the most incisive and thorough introducers I’ve seen. His understanding of his clients and the detailed scope he puts together make our job a lot easier. Most importantly he makes sure that his clients’ needs are absolutely clear and well represented.

Alec, Risk Director (Lender)

John is a very trusted broker and introducer who delivers real value to his client and ensures the business is at the centre of each transaction. This makes the whole process seamless from a customer and funder perspective.

John stays involved in the transaction from start to finish and most importantly, always puts the customer first, working tirelessly to find the right fit for both the funder and client. 

Sean, Sales Director (Lender)

I have worked with John for a number of years. He has extensive knowledge of our sector having held a variety of roles within it before his successful move into broking. It’s clear from our dealings with Open InVoice Finance that John stays very close to the process and always has the client’s best interest at heart.

Neal, Director (Lender)

It was time for a change of lender. John did a great job helping me find a new home. His input was invaluable in the process.

Bob, Owner (Client)

I have worked with John Dodsworth for many years and have always found him to be a great ‘connector’ in the truest sense of the word. John engages with business owners on a personal level and looking beyond the individual transaction to build lasting relationships.

Tim, Managing Director (Lender)

I know I can rely on John. He is really easy to work with and very structured in his approach. It is evident that lenders place value in his involvement and I think that provides a better outcome for all parties.

John, Director (Client)

John very quickly got to understand our business and presented a number of options, tailored for our consideration, not just based on price but on understanding of our sector. He continued to support us through the process of legals, explaining in concise terms areas we needed to understand.

Mark, Managing Director (Client)

John was an excellent ally and great resource. He helped negotiate terms and made sure I didn’t trip up on any unknowns – I knew he had my back and for that I am grateful.

Mark, Managing Director (Client)

It was clear from the first time I spoke with John that he knew what he was doing and knew exactly who our new funding partner ought to be. We would not have found them ourselves. I quickly had confidence and trust in his ability.
