Our company frequently concludes contracts with clients that require us to use the services of smaller BEE partners. These smaller BEE partners do not have the financial capacity to meet the capital requirements of the client contract. The TradeSafe platform enabled us to effectively fund the BEE partner to meet their contractual obligations. The TradeSafe platform provided the assurance that the BEE partner met its obligations to its suppliers using the funds we had made available

Acquiring clients was easy. Getting the client to pay me was another story. Simply because both parties could not trust each other. With TradeSafe the client can’t scam me, and I can’t scam the client. I freelance comfortably without worrying about payments.
