Key Finance showcases groundbreaking retail business finance tools at RBTE 2017

Shopfit Funder, Software Funder, and Vendor Programme make 100% project funding accessible and affordable to retailers of all sizes

Free leasing consultancy also available to all delegates visiting Stand 96

COBHAM, SURREY, UK: Key Finance will be showcasing three innovative business finance tools at the Retail Business Technology Expo 2017, offering retailers complete funding of core and associated costs for a variety of essential projects.

The groundbreaking tools take a holistic and flexible approach to retail business finance, encompassing both 'hard' and 'soft' assets, rather than being subject to the selective and often restrictive options currently available from other funders.

The family-owned company has been providing finance services to the retail ecosystem for 25 years, working closely with sole traders, leading multi-national chains, franchises, franchisees and distributors.

Key Finance will be on hand on Stand 96 at RBTE 2017 (co-located with the Business Design Expo and Retail Digital Signage Expo at London’s Olympia) on May 8th & 9th to talk in detail about the following tools:

Shopfit Funder: Key Finance can provide funding across a huge variety of projects, including shop builds, shop fits and shop refits, in addition to the build and maintenance of warehouse and distribution centres – encompassing everything from fixtures & fittings and IT, through to architectural and planning costs. Its Shopfit Funder tool helps retailers not just with cash flow and budgeting, but also administration, by pulling all costs associated with a project into one agreement.

Software Funder: Key Finance has been providing funding for IT for more than 30 years. Many banks do not consider software a tangible asset. However, Key Finance can fund 100% of software costs with its Software Funder tool, including consultancy, implementation, training, support and licence fees. Software Funder can also include the internal costs incurred when delivering a bespoke system. In short, Key Finance can help companies in the retail ecosystem take advantage of new software, without the need any upfront investment.

Vendor Programme: Key Finance has been helping retail vendors increase sales for over 30 years, providing simple and flexible leasing options via its Vendor Programme. The tool means vendors can offer their clients payment over time, enabling the customer to pay as their solutions deliver the return on investment to their business. Incorporating a finance option within a sales arsenal is crucial to providing a holistic vendor offering. Key Finance provides all its Vendor Programme partners with a dedicated account manager to help create bespoke solutions for their clients.

In addition to information on the above tools, Key Finance Chairman John Mounsey will be available at RBTE 2017 to provide delegates with free consultancy on the various leasing options open to their business as either retailers or retail industry suppliers.

“We’re hugely excited to be attending RBTE 2017 and we’re looking forward to providing open and honest finance advice to the retail industry,” said Key Finance Managing Director Henry Mounsey. “Software Funder, Shopfit Funder and our Vendor Programme have all been created based on our ongoing discussions with the trade. We believe each of these tools can make a real difference to retail businesses of all types.”

2017 is shaping up to be a busy year for Key Finance – it has already rebranded its website, moved into new premises and launched new products in Shopfit Funder and Software Funder.

As it pushes on through the year the company is continuing to reinforce its traditional business, launch more debt finance products and expand its team.
