“We used the QCC product on a troubled client situation…….the team reacted very quickly and, along with initial searches, travelled a great distance to meet me at the clients premises at very short notice. The meeting was extremely useful and helped mould our strategy for this client….we will definitely use the QCC product should a similar situation arise – it helped greatly & the turnaround time was very impressive.”

Senior Operations Manager – Investec Capital Solutions

“Covid-19 has been a difficult time for most, had it not been for Kirsty I feel we would still be working through CBILS applications and going back and forth with banks. We just found it so much easier and reassuring to leave everything to her to manage for us. We appreciated the transparency with regards to managing our expectations and making sure she did what was right for us as a company. I have referred Kirsty to a few colleagues who have all had positive experiences. Many thanks to you Kirsty and the team at Touch for helping us during such a difficult time!”

Across-The-Board Recruitment LTD

“We had the opportunity to use this service for a Customer in May 2018. The Metro RM and SFP visited and spent valuable time with the customer assessing the Arrears that had been accumulating and then offering a revisit in later months. SFP then summarised the position for us via a comprehensive e-mail which had the added benefit of satisfying our credit team. Monthly updates were scheduled via conference call so that we could monitor progress & then react quickly if deterioration was spotted. I would certainly use this service again in future and recommend it to others.“

After speaking with a few brokers and companies directly about invoice factoring services for permanent recruitment, I couldn’t find a rate that I was happy with but a quick call to Touch Financial resulted in being paired with an excellent facility that offered a very competitive fee structure.
