Hi I’m Ivonne Ricana. I am the CEO and president of IPR Fashion Botique which is now IPR Polaris Trading. We basically supply south sea pearls and natural diamonds and precious stones from other countries especially from Antwerp. All of our products are natural and we also supply like gem stones and crystals. Last year, I had that wish in my heart that I really wanted to expand the business so I’m trying to find a company that can support a business person like me who just started. So there. When I saw Acudeen, I started to communicate and I’m very lucky that I GOT Joma and he’s very very helpful and he’s really very very friendly and he really helped me a lot like he assists me whenever I have questions. He makes everything very easy for me. And for Acudeen, Acudeen really helps me out. Acudeen helps me to expedite my progress and development in the business. Without Acudeen, I don’t think I can progress this much, in the span of two years.
"I started my small business in 2009. I was young and I had little experience handling a business involving products and services. As my business started to run, I have kept trying to seek financial help so I can pay my debts and expand my store. During the MSME Summit in Bacolod, I raised this question to one of Acudeen's representatives who was part of the panel discussion I attended. Thank God, Acudeen was there! I was given instructions on how to sign up for free through the website, and their staff was willing to answer my questions about the platform afterward since I had no idea what I was doing. Now, I have converted all my receivables to cash, what a reality! Furthermore, here in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, there is an economic problem due to the weakening of the sugar industry. This makes it difficult for entrepreneurs to find financing so the best thing to do is to venture for alternatives. Hence, I really thank the staff of Acudeen Technologies! More power and God bless!"
"With our business model now, since we are a servicing company, we usually have to wait 30-90 days to get paid. This hurts our cashflow and our liquidity because even if we have receivables, we are not getting paid on time. In my company, our main priority is to get our guys paid for their efforts, but that's not the reality. With the type of clients we're getting, most of the time their big orders become overwhelming if we have limited cashflow. Acudeen saved us from a couple of "could've been" disastrous payroll periods. I actually use Acudeen now as a verb. I tell my guys if we have receivables, you Acudeen that! Acudeen is a lifesaver and if I could just give virtual hugs to them every time, I definitely would. To grow your business, you gotta have resources and liquidity, and with Acudeen, we get to capitalize on assets that are not liquid yet through the platform."
"Since we partnered with Acudeen, the challenges of waiting at least 60-120 days that we experienced before are long gone. It only takes us 3-4 days to get our receivables now. And the good thing about this is we do not have to keep following up the payments with our clients, instead Acudeen will do that for us."
