We help recruitment agencies focus on their business

Recruitment agencies need to pay temporary workers and contractors while waiting for their invoices to be paid. At the same time, they need to focus on the day-to-day of managing payroll, timesheets and raising and chasing invoices.

Each has different implications for cashflow and the ability to focus on developing their business.
