Supplier Spotlight: One Call Furniture

20th December, 2019

One Call Furniture has a simple business model — make just one phone call, and get the stylish and affordable furniture you need.

However, what isn’t so simple is getting paid promptly from clients, them to turn to Greensill in August of 2017.

“Greensill pays us weekly on behalf of our largest customer for goods supplied the previous week,” says Howard Cohen, Director at One Call Furniture. “Had we not sought help from Greensill, we would have had to limit growth in business with our largest account — possibly even having to reduce it.”

“Working with Greensill is easy and simple, and has been a huge benefit to One Call. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”

Working with Greensill has given One Call Furniture easier access to larger amounts of cash, enabling them to take advantage of supplier settlement discounts, and to make spot market purchases of raw materials. It has also significantly reduced the money they must borrow from their balance sheet, helping to strengthen their financial rating.

Simply put, Greensill allows One Call Furniture to get paid sooner, more efficiently, and for less.

Using the power of a global network, the speed of cutting-edge technology, and the insight of our people, Greensill delivers ultra-low-cost capital so companies like One Call Furniture can put it to work.

“Working with Greensill is easy and simple, and has been a huge benefit to One Call,” Cohen said. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”
