News from Partners: efcom with first factoring customer in the Middle East


Eaton Enterprises became efcom’s first customer in the Middle East region. As a global technology company, Eaton uses efcom’s software solutions to map inter-company factoring operations. It involves the pre-financing of receivables within the Eaton Group. Intercompany factoring is used, first of all, to ease the working capital financing of group companies, and also to centralize potential liquidity, credit, and currency risks. The popularity of this group-based factoring option has continued to grow in recent years.

“We are pleased that with Eaton Enterprises we are now also able to serve a customer in the Arab region. Eaton is a recognized company that is active worldwide – and with whom we are already very successful in other locations,” emphasizes Arnulf Romann, efcom’s CEO.

“By focusing on the Middle East, Eaton is doing what we are also aiming to do – namely, to expand and consolidate our presence in that region,” adds Federico Avellán-Borgmeyer, Chief Partner Officer at efcom. “This is an important step for us as a provider of smart cloud factoring solutions, which are interesting for established companies and market entrants. Incidentally, we also offer solutions for Islamic factoring.”
