“We believe it is very important to make available to factoring firms like ours globally some of the marketing tools we have found successful in the United States,” commented Mandula. “As the only speaker invited from the United States at the Conference, my presentation was a unique opportunity to educate other industry CEO from firms based the EU, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and South America about the Accounts Receivable factoring and management industry in the United States, and how to profitably market factoring services in an ever changing environment.”
As the Conference organizers Marcus Evans noted, “Factoring products are more important than ever in the current environment, however with weak credit and an increase in risk management it is important for all factoring companies to standardize their process and iron out any weak links.

Alongside this international approaches to factoring services were dissected and local funding and financing were debated.”
