Giving goods value
We turn inventory into valuable collateral through transparency and evaluation.
Asset-Based Lending, secured by goods, is an underappreciated form of financing in the lending landscape. Inventory of merchants and manufacturers plays a subordinate role as collateral for loans.
- The reason is that there is an information gap between the digital landscapes of trade/logistics and the financial world, and real-time data exchange is scarce.
- As a result, financiers and banks typically do not accept the inventory in their customers’ warehouses as collateral. There is a lack of real-time insights, valuation basis, and risk transparency for all parties involved.
With decades of experience in the trade and financing industry, the LABEST team has been closing this information gap since 2016 through innovative solutions. With the LABEST service offering, we connect the world of inventory management with the regulatory requirements of financiers in Europe. In doing so, we provide high risk transparency in the inventory warehouses for lenders, making them valuable and fully usable as collateral in the best interest of the business owners.
LABEST brings together the digital world of professional trade and production companies, as well as their logistics partners, with the increasing regulatory requirements of the financing industry in Europe. LABEST complements the extensive logistics data on inventory and movements with real-time market values, creating a comprehensive digital real-time risk monitoring system. Transparency, efficiency, and high flexibility are the key focus of our service, benefiting all parties involved. An offering that is unique in Germany and Europe as a whole.
