Working capital – struggling with supplier terms?

Learn how to increase your working capital and improve supplier terms

When it comes to the construction industry, understanding and improving supplier terms is crucial. Suppliers play a vital role in providing materials and services, and their terms can impact the overall progress and bottom line of a construction project.

Credit profiles can directly affect supplier terms, so they matter now more than ever. Due to the current financial landscape, businesses will often look at how your business is rated and what your recommended credit limits are.
