You may know that AdvancedAR (www.AdvancedARfunding.com) has quietly become the direct lending division of Ftrans over the last several months.   Ftrans continues our growth and significantly expands  our efforts in this area by creating a distinct funding operation, AdvancedAR, a provider of business lines of credit to small and mid-sized businesses. In conjunction with this launch of AdvancedAR, FNB Bank (www.yourfnbbank.com) joins with us as our new financing partner.  Ftrans, with over $6 billion in receivables transactions processed, continues to serve as the operations and transaction processor of Advanced AR.
 
AdvancedAR provides business lines of credit to SMB owners, supported by enhanced trade credit management and collection capabilities that have been developed by Ftrans over the last eight years.   These best-in-class practices and procedures are usually only available to the largest, most sophisticated businesses and help AdvancedAR’s clients collect receivables more quickly and reduce bad debt expense.
 
“The success that Ftrans has seen over the past few years is a true testament to the value our service provides small businesses,” said Dan Drechsel, CEO of Ftrans. “We believe that the official launch of AdvancedAR, which will now incorporate the direct lending division of Ftrans with FNB as our partner, will allow us to reach more businesses and help them solve their trade credit management and funding challenges.”
 
 “We believe AdvancedAR will significantly enhance our ability to build communities by helping small businesses grow,” explains Alan Gay, Chairman of FNB Bank.  “Partnering with Ftrans will allow us to serve existing and new clients with loan products that make use of Ftrans’ unique collateral monitoring and trade credit management capabilities.”
