A Quantum Leap Forward in SME Finance
To succeed in the ultra-competitive print and fulfilment business, access to the latest state-of-the-art equipment is key. That's why Michael Corcoran of leading provider Quantum Fulfilment values his relationship with Linked Finance and the fast access to capital it provides.
Established by Micheal Corcoran in 2004, Quantum Fulfilment is a leading print and direct marketing company based in Rathcoole, Co Dublin.
One of the largest and best-established print and direct marketing specialists in the region, Quantum has developed an excellent reputation for providing a responsive and reliable service across a wide range of print and fulfilment solutions.
In a market that has become increasingly squeezed in recent decades, Quantum Fulfilment has gone from strength to strength by continually expanding its offering, consistently delivering exceptional service and constantly upgrading to the latest, state-of-the-art equipment.
Cutting-edge commercial print equipment doesn't come cheap and in Ireland, international providers don't always offer affordable finance options.
To ensure that Quantum stays at the forefront of the market, Michael regularly requires access to capital in order to quickly acquire the kit needed to deliver a new service or to upgrade an existing piece of equipment.
Michael first discovered Linked Finance back in 2015. The business was expanding and increased demand was pushing their production capacity to the limit. The company had decided to invest in a key piece of print equipment that would allow it to significantly increase output; driving revenue and ensuring Quantum could continue delivering the best service in the business.
As someone who had regularly invested in new equipment over the preceding decade, Michael was all too familiar with the traditional approach to accessing capital and the various headaches or delays that entailed.
He was introduced to Linked Finance and the simple, straightforward approach made so much sense.
“In our industry cutting-edge equipment is key to long-term success. We regularly need to upgrade machines or source the latest technology. Linked Finance takes all of the hassle out of accessing finance. They really get the importance of speed and simplicity for SMEs.”
The new printer would require €40,000 and with Linked Finance Michael was able to raise the loan, acquire the machine and grow his business in a fraction of the time it would have normally taken.
Since then, Michael has returned to the platform on multiple occasions and is delighted to have developed a relationship with a finance provider who understands his business.
Quantum Fulfilment is among a growing number of ambitious Irish SMEs, from every county in the country and every sector of the economy, who now turn to Linked Finance whenever they spot an opportunity to expand.
At Linked Finance, we understand that speed and simplicity are crucial when it comes to accessing finance. With easy applications, quick decisions and business loans of up to €300,000 in just 24 hours, it's no surprise that business owners such as Michael return to Linked Finance time and time again.
“Having a great relationship with a finance provider who truly understands your business is invaluable. I know that if I need a new piece of equipment or if I spot any other opportunity to expand the business, I can contact Linked Finance and get things sorted quickly and with zero hassle.”
