Barclays, Working Capital Finance, UK, Asset Based Lending, Trade Ledger, SaaS, Client Onboarding, Loan ManagementBarclays has decided to further develop its working capital offering by investing in and implementing Trade Ledger’s next-generation working capital orchestration platform. This new platform will provide end-to-end credit management automation for Barclays Corporate clients in the UK and around the world.

Working capital finance solutions like Invoice Discounting, Asset Based Lending, and Selected Debtor Finance are key credit solutions for businesses, and lenders, during periods of growth and downturn. However, there has been very little innovation in the industry lately, which has slowed access to this type of finance.

By implementing the Trade Ledger platform, Barclays will allow clients to unlock cash flow with convenient, quick access to working capital. Using API-driven SaaS technology, Barclays will offer a client-centric onboarding and loan management user experience, eliminating time-consuming and labor-intensive manual processes with access to real-time data – including a client’s accounting platform.

James Binns, Global Head of Trade and Working Capital at Barclays said, “Investing in and implementing the Trade Ledger Platform will allow us to make lending decisions faster and more efficiently, using real-time data drawn from a rich variety of sources, and powerful workflows. This drives faster time-to-money, reducing the cost of funding in supply chains, which has huge benefits for our corporate banking clients and the communities they support.”

Martin McCann, CEO and co-founder of Trade Ledger, said, “We are delighted that Barclays Bank has chosen Trade Ledger to support its offering to business borrowers, and that it has the confidence in our business vision to make this investment. Our history with Barclays goes back to 2018 when we won the Barclays Open Innovation Challenge and, from then on, we have worked with the bank’s leadership team to identify areas of the bank where our technology could be applied to deliver transformational value to the bank’s lending processes.”
