Be it soups, sandwiches, ready meals or sauces, the company Bensan AG from Uetendorf in Bern stands for enjoyment and joie de vivre since its foundation in 2011. The small company with its owner and managing director Ibrahim Ben specialises in ready-to-eat foods that meet high standards in quality and freshness. The convenience products, freshly produced every day by the company itself, are sold to well-known Swiss retailers such as Coop and Manor as well as smaller bakeries.
A great deal of flexibility is required in the production and distribution of fresh food. Orders can vary greatly from day to day. “One of the most important things for a company is to have sufficient liquidity to be able to handle several large orders within a short period of time,” Mr Ben knows from his own experience. A few years ago, he wanted to concentrate entirely on the production of fresh convenience products and was looking for financing that would guarantee his liquidity even in the event of fluctuations in demand and would grow with his company. “The offer of A.B.S. Factoring AG seemed exactly the right thing for us”, reports Mr. Ben. “Thanks to A.B.S. Factoring, we receive our outstanding accounts receivable immediately and thus remain liquid at all times. Additional, the assumption of accounts receivable management by A.B.S. Factoring AG frees up resources for us, as we no longer have to run after open accounts receivable. Only the sales-promoting part of the customer relationship remains with us.” Via the online portal of A.B.S. Factoring AG, Mr. Ben can also view the maturity structure of his debtors in real time. As an entrepreneur, he thus retains control despite outsourcing the accounts receivable management and can intervene in the standardized processes where necessary.
Ibrahim Ben has been working successfully with A.B.S. Factoring AG since 2015. In addition to the reliable supply of liquidity, he is also convinced by the personal customer service and the partnership cooperation at eye level. “I can highly recommend A.B.S. Factoring AG to any start-up and any company that has liquidity bottlenecks due to seasonal fluctuations in sales. They are very competent and professional. I wish them continued success”.
