How we helped AFS to extend their asset loan customer service

Last week we reported on the resounding success of Synergy’s ‘Meet the Funders’ and our annual franchisees’ Christmas get-together.  Earlier this week we were once again invited to attend yet another ‘Meet the Funders’ event that was again combined with a fun-filled Christmas Do.  This time it was organised by our sister company, Asset Finance Solutions (AFS) and we were delighted to be asked to take part in this important end-of-year event.  Just a moment though, even though AFS are part of the same group, are they not in some ways business rivals?

The answer to that question is no, not at all.

The AFS proposition is to help their clients obtain the necessary business and company assets they require by sourcing and structuring the very best and most competitive asset loan deals.  Whilst at Synergy, although we can offer that same facility, our own business offering is much, much broader and we are able to provide all types of commercial finance support across what is an exceptionally wide range of service areas, including:

Bridging Finance

Business Cash Advance

Business Loans

Commercial Mortgages

Invoice Finance

Personal Finance

Property Development Finance

… and so much more.

When you think about it, it made perfect sense for AFS to invite us to attend their event in order to meet and talk to their franchisees along with all the other funders represented at the venue.

AFS concentrates exclusively on providing asset loan finance solutions for their clients.  So, if a client also enquires about broader funding requirements, then by referring them to their sister company – Synergy Commercial Finance –AFS franchisees won’t have to say: “Sorry we can’t help you”.

Instead they will still be able to ensure that their clients don’t go elsewhere and they receive the very best and most professional advice backed up by an unbeatable commercial finance facility thanks to Synergy’s own unrivalled funding panel that now exceeds over 200 High Street and specialist market lending sources.

Having attended the event we have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.  We got to speak to many, many AFS franchisees, who it has to be said were extremely interested in learning more about how Synergy could help them provide additional commercial finance support for their own clients.

Relationships were struck and without doubt these will prove to be long-term win-win partnerships that are sure to provide additional business opportunities for everyone involved.

As a sister company of AFS we are delighted to report that we were also invited to the evening’s Christmas party.  Just as our own was last week, it was an excellent combination of festive fun, fine food, drinks, music, laughter and friendship.

Undoubtedly this was a most fitting finale to 2019.  Now for an even better 2020.
