When Dave Cole opened the doors of his cleaning firm, SND Cleaning Ltd (SND), in 2009 he had one school as a client and a passion to build his business through a complete commitment to service. 8 years and 90 schools later, Dave’s monthly revenue has increased 18 fold from that initial contract. The proof of the pudding of Dave’s service ethic is shown simply through the fact that he has never had a website or a business card. It’s all grown through word of mouth; the golden ticket for any business.
Such stellar business performance is not without growing pains. Taking on larger and larger contracts requires a lot of financial space. With the bank reticent to provide the support needed at the right time, SND needed another way.
SND’s accountant recommended invoice discounting to help provide that financial space to accommodate ever-increasing contract sizes. Moreover, the specific recommendation was to talk to IGF. That was the perfect catalyst the company needed and SND has never looked back.
Dave Cole, Owner, SND Cleaning Ltd, said;
“IGF were there for us when we needed help to grow and they have been there ever since. No silly jargon. No fuss. More than that I’m still working with the same people all these years later- a real rarity when it comes to finance companies. Kris, Ruth and Michelle treat us like royalty. They are part of my business family and they ensure I never have a sleepless night about cashflow. The service we receive is far superior than any bank I have been with. In fact, if IGF did bank accounts they could have that as well!”
Kristina Circus, Client Manager, IGF Group, said;
“SND is a stunning success and we are very proud to be supporting them in their story. We strive to be part of the team and give our clients the headspace to focus on growing their business and delivering to clients, in the knowledge that the cash is taken care of. That, as SND demonstrates, is a real game changer.”
