ProgressPay™ is a new debtor financing product designed specifically for the construction industry.

Progressclaim.com has partnered with Omniveta Finance, an international debtor finance specialist, to offer General Contractors the ability to empower their Subcontractors by providing them access to a product that helps improve their cash flows and strengthen and grow their businesses.

ProgressPay™ leverages the financial strength of the General Contractor to offer Subcontractors the option to receive payment for 85% of the value of their progress claim-based invoice within 2 business days of its approval in Progressclaim.com. The remaining 15% (less accrued fees) is paid to the Subcontractor when Omniveta Finance receives payment for that invoice from the General Contractor; completing the transaction.

There is no change to when the General Contractor needs to make payment; when ProgressPay™ is used Omniveta Finance provide the funding for the initial advance, and the General Contractor then simply pays the invoice directly to Omniveta Finance, rather than the Subcontractor, on the originally contracted terms. We incentivise the General Contractor to pay within their standard payment terms by offering an “On-Time Payment Incentive”; aligning the interests of all parties and helping minimise fees payable by Subcontractors.

ProgressPay™ is completely optional; Subcontractors can elect to finance their progress claims on a claim-by-claim basis. There are no personal or real estate security requirements and after joining ProgressPay™ Subcontractors can elect which invoices to finance with just a few clicks online using the innovative Progressclaim.com platform.

FAQs


What is ProgressPay™?

Progressclaim.com has partnered with Omniveta Finance, an international debtor finance specialist, to offer General Contractors the ability to empower their Subcontractors by providing them access to a product that helps improve their cash flows and strengthen and grow their businesses.

Why is ProgressPay™ being offered?

Progressclaim.com had already simplified, improved and streamlined the claim and approval process for thousands of General Contractors and Subcontractors. We then turned our attention to the payment side of the process and have developed a solution that bridges the working capital gap faced by Subcontractors and that benefits everyone in the construction supply chain.

How much does ProgressPay™ cost?

Most debtor finance companies never disclose their fees. Our partner Omniveta Finance is proud to provide transparent and inclusive rates. There is an initial fixed fee of 3.5% of the invoice value, with nothing further payable until after 30 days, and only then if the invoice is still outstanding. From that point there is an additional 0.07% per day until the General Contractor makes payment. Omniveta Finance do not charge any additional interest, penalties, arrangement fees or management fees. This makes it far easier to understand and calculate the true cost, and avoids the typical hidden charges many industry participants rely on in order to market a “cheaper” headline rate.

Do I need to be using Progressclaim.com to be eligible for ProgressPay™?

Yes. ProgressPay™ is only available when your General Contractor uses Progressclaim.com and has elected to participate in the program.

How does ProgressPay™ differ from other factoring and invoice discounting products?

ProgressPay™ is not only a disclosed facility, it is only offered with the complete support of the participating General Contractor, and offers their Subcontractors the ability to receive advance payment of 85% of the invoice value, far higher than the construction industry standard. There is no minimum charge, no management fees and Subcontractors can choose which invoices they would like to receive advance payment for, even on a claim-by-claim basis.
