Help Increase Your Construction Company’s Cash Flow

As your construction business grows, it’s important that you effectively manage your company’s cash flow and that you’re able to access the funding you need to seize new opportunities. Financing a construction business can be difficult at times. You’ve got to cover your job costs, meet payroll for your employees, and pay your subcontractors on time. All the while, dealing with the inevitable delay of payments from the time a job is completed to the time the customer pays. Building a strong business credit file can help. Here’s how a strong business credit file can help you increase your construction company’s cash flow:

Help secure financing at better repayment terms
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), insufficient or delayed financing is the second most common reason for business failure.* Having strong business credit scores and ratings can help increase your chances of getting funding when you need it most. You may even be able to negotiate better credit card and loan interest rates, which can positively impact your cash flow.

Get needed building materials at favorable terms
Suppliers can evaluate your business credit report to help make decisions about how much credit to extend to you and at what terms. Your business credit report can give them a snapshot view of the financial health of your business. Having strong business credit scores and ratings can help ensure that you get the materials you need under the best possible terms.

Monitor your partners

You may also want to make sure you’re monitoring the companies supporting your business in order to avoid potentially troublesome accounts. By keeping an eye on the financial health of the companies you work with, you can put yourself in the best position to deliver on your promises to your customers, without impacting your cash flow significantly.

CreditAdvisor™ can help you monitor one of your partner’s D&B credit scores and ratings, and DNBi can help you monitor the D&B scores and rating for multiple companies at once to help ensure you maintain operational efficiency.
