Reduce Construction Project Costs and Risks

problem with trade finance during purchasing of construction materials

Project Owners are Overpaying for Construction Materials

Subcontractor bids reflect expensive financing embedded in construction materials

Difference in financing cost as provided by materials suppliers to subcontractors in much higher than financing provided by project owners
financing  access  for subcontractors is a problem

Subcontractors have Limited Financing Options

Poor access to financing leads to cash flow problems. Subcontractors that are small or from underrepresented groups are subject to barriers that reflect both commercial realities and human bias

solution to problem of access and cost to financing access during purchasing of construction materials

Owners Insert Their Financing to Replace Trade Credit

Eliminate financing duplication costs and financing barriers. Chipi enables owners to insert their capital into the construction materials purchasing process risk-free. This eliminates a layer of financing costs and creates financing access for targeted subcontractors.

 

The cash flow requirements are filled by upstream team members such as the GC or developer with direct and real-time payments to the value-chain endpoint

Remove Barriers and Intercept Problems Day 1

Financial problems never start. Project risks born of contractors’ liquidity challenges are addressed at day 1

Chipi's solution is faster than factoring, reverse factoring, dynamic discounting, supply chain finance, invoice finance, PO financing, receivables finance, net 15 payment plans, and payment applications

Increase Capacity

Subcontractors and Suppliers are Capital Constrained. Confidently award more work to subcontractors because their main capital constraint – purchasing materials with cash flow or supplier credit – is no longer a factor.

SBE suppliers have only so much access to capital to supply trade credit to your subs.

Removing capital requirements to purchase construction materials will enable SBE/XBE subcontractors to add production capacity and SBE/XBE suppliers to sell more materials
