Industry: Technology wholesaler
Reason for Funding: Find a funder to support significant growth in a high tech gadgets market
Funding Raised: £4,000,000
We are a rapidly expanding tech distribution business. We had grown out of our facility and the relationship had broken down. 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. He joined lender meetings and helped negotiate and complete the transition to the new lender. It was a really helpful process and very much value the support we received.

Industry: Timber
Reason for Funding: Increase funding to support additional purchasing opportunities
Funding Raised: £750,000
As a small family business over a 150 years old  and suffering from the effects of Brexit during 2018, we needed to review our funding. We had always used traditional methods of funding, but started looking towards Confidential Invoice Financing. We were introduced to John, who took time to understand our requirements and what our company did. He created a funding proposal for potential lenders and identified suitable bankers. The result was a funding restructure with a one of the smaller, but well established London banks. John is customer focussed and keeps in contact with us well after the project was completed.

Industry: Karen – Outdoor Media advertising
Reason for Funding: Fund advertising agency invoices, with significant offsets and spikes in concentrations
Funding Raised: £1,000,000
Without John’s input we would not have achieved the result we needed, we had tried to navigate this inhouse to find a lender in the invoice discounting space and failed. We enlisted John and he literally swept in, orchestrated the financial presentation we needed to clearly outline our business making it digestible for the market. He arranged the meetings for us to present and we achieved two offers the same day. The service from Open InVoice Finance was frank, straightforward and got the job done when we were up against a short deadline. Not only that, John held our hand throughout and continued to keep in touch ensuring the facility was working well. I would highly recommend Open InVoice Finance.

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. I continue to use his services to support negotiations and additional facilities with lenders.

Industry: Consulting
Reason for Funding: Funding to pay contractors
Funding Raised: £200,000
We have always used John Dodsworth and Open InVoice for our funding requirements.  John is a true industry professional and has the experience to show for it.  He has the technical understanding and as such breaks down the various options so we can understand in layman’s terms.  The world of financing can be a minefield when it comes to terminology but John utilises his experience and knowledge to advise on the most suited facility for our needs in the short and long term.  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.

Industry: Electric bikes manufacturer & distribution
Reason for Funding: Support international brand growth – long manufacturing cycle and seasonal trade
Funding Raised: £1,000,000
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.
