NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AmeriMerchant, a leading provider of alternative financing solutions for businesses since 2002, today launched an online application that allows small and mid-sized businesses to apply for a business loan and/or merchant cash advance with a completely paperless transaction. Now, small to mid-sized business (SMB) owners can receive decisions in 60 seconds or less upon completing an application online and access to working capital in days, in addition to avoiding the time consuming process of faxing pages of bank statements and providing information over the phone.
AmeriMerchant’s online application is a game changer for SMB owners who need fast and easy access to working capital to make time sensitive inventory purchases, replace or repair equipment, or finance any other business critical needs. Using the latest backend technology and proprietary algorithms, AmeriMerchant can process requests more efficiently than ever before, and reduce the completion of the entire application process from weeks, or even months, to a matter of minutes and receive funding within a couple of days. An API will also be available for websites looking to integrate AmeriMerchant’s online application directly.
“By offering a fully online application process, we’re giving SMB owners one more reason to choose alternative lending over traditional sources,” said David Goldin, CEO and Founder of AmeriMerchant. “Business owners and entrepreneurs need time-saving tools and processes to compete in today’s fast-paced environment. We’re addressing that need, and will do even more in 2014 to help SMB owners get working capital as quickly and efficiently as possible from their computer, tablet or smart phone.”
AmeriMerchant’s online application is also available to the company’s referral partners, resellers, agents and independent sales organizations (ISOs), to provide them with a fast and easy way to get their clients access to working capital.
“Technology has disrupted many industries for the better, and business lending is no different,” said Goldin. “AmeriMerchant has always embraced technology, and we are excited to be on the forefront of its use within the industry, to ensure our clients are benefitting from a better, faster and more efficient process of applying for business capital."
