Data-Based Trade Financing Solutions from DBS and Infor Nexus Improve SME Cash Flows

Infor Nexus and DBS Bank have partnered to offer pre-shipment financing for SMEs in the supply chain ecosystem. This innovative solution uses historical information from the Infor Nexus network to offer data-driven loan solutions for suppliers' working capital needs. Pre-shipment financing allows providers to use their increased cashflows to complete orders before items are delivered to purchasers, revolutionizing the market.

DBS Bank & Infor Nexus previously focused on early payments to suppliers’ post-shipment. The newest trade financing solution provides throughout its entirety digital working capital funding from pre-shipment to post-shipment. Since 2020, DBS has smoothly integrated its competitive digital trade financing solutions into the Infor Nexus network. The Bank will employ Infor Nexus platform supply chain data, including historical and real-time milestones on physical items transit.

The trade financing solution has been provided to Indian SMEs in the garment, footwear, and textile industries, which are economic growth drivers. Infor Nexus ecosystem includes DBS Bank underwriting trade finance facility applications for prospective SME suppliers. Rather than traditional paperwork, which often leaves suppliers underfunded or unable to obtain working capital, analytics-based data will be used to assess risk and trustworthiness. Suppliers can reduce cashflow demands between shipping, delivery, and payment by financing outstanding orders before invoices are finalized. DBS became one of the first institutions to offer this innovative option, which might transform SME finance.

DBS Bank India's MD and Head of Global Transaction Services, Divyesh Dalal, expressed their excitement to join with Infor Nexus to offer a unique working capital funding solution for SME and MSME suppliers. Working capital is crucial for small firms to grow in their industry, according to DBS Bank.
