ATLANTA, GA - Cashway Funding factoring clients often ask us: “What is the best scanning app I can use to send my paperwork to you so I can get paid today”? This is a common question with invoice and freight bill factoring. Most factoring companies cannot issue payment until the freight bill is received, so what happens if your driver isn’t near a fax machine or wifi-enabled location?
The good news it that most drivers already have the solution to the problem in-hand: smartphones and tablet computers can now be used as portable scanning and transmission devices.
Fastest way to send documents for payment
Unlike many shippers, freight brokers and transportation finance companies, Cashway Funding accepts documents sent by smartphone scanners as long as the documents are genuine, complete and legible. Cashway does not charge fees for smartphone scanning.
This means that your drivers can install scanning apps on their cell phones, then use the apps to send documents and get paid faster. Each app lets the driver snap a photo of a document and email a clear copy of it for immediate payment.
