Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: GLNNF) (CSE: GET) today announced it has entered into a strategic alliance and referral agreement with Merchant Advance Capital Limited Partnership (“Merchant Advance Capital”). Merchant Advance Capital provides funding to small and medium-sized businesses by purchasing a specified percentage of future receivables.
David Gens, CEO of Merchant Advance Capital commented: “We are proud to be partnering with Glance, a company that shares our values of innovation and use of technology in providing financial services. Together, we can provide Canada’s most convenient financing solutions.”
Under the terms of the Strategic Alliance Agreement, Glance and Merchant Advance Capital will collaboratively market and promote each other’s businesses through their respective marketing and sales channels. Under the terms of the Referral Agreement, Glance will be paid a fee for each transaction that Merchant Advance Capital closes from a Glance generated lead.
A significant emerging sector of the economy is made up of freelancers and small businesses. Glance recently launched its Glance PayMe mobile POS solution providing freelancers and small businesses with a secure, low-fee processing solution without long delays in getting paid. Small businesses often have difficulty obtaining funding from traditional banks. Through this new partnership, small businesses operating on the Glance platforms may now be eligible to receive financing in as little as one to three business days.
Desmond Griffin, CEO of Glance commented: “We see Merchant Advance Capital as the perfect partner for our new Glance PayMe application. We are impressed by their innovative approach to financing small business, the application of technology to their approval and risk management processes and ability to quickly approve an application. We think their product is an excellent solution that can help our Glance merchants overcome seasonality challenges and expand and grow their businesses.”
