SFS expands its Manchester-based team PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 15 August 2016
Siemens Financial Services (SFS) has announced growth of the team based in its flagship office at Sir William Siemens House, Manchester. SFS’ Vendor Finance sales support team, previously based in Bristol, has relocated to join colleagues in Siemens’ Manchester office. Following a decision made in early June, this latest phase of growth is now complete, and staff started at their new location on 15th August.  

The relocation means the entire Vendor Finance sales support team will now be based in one location and will continue to work together with SFS’ national team of account managers, to ensure improved and consistent delivery of the company’s award winning service. It allows SFS to expand its centre of excellence for customer service by bringing together a wealth of experience and knowledge under one roof. In this way, the move will strengthen sales support; aligning processes and improving communications.

As one of the longest serving funders to this sector, these developments reinforce SFS’ reputation as a stable, consistent funder that is strongly committed to the market – both in times of growth as well as economic challenges. SFS has demonstrated strength, profound market knowledge and sound practise in supporting UK vendors through difficult economic periods by continuing to provide funding when others could not.

SFS continues to develop service enhancements in response to the needs of its customers, such as faster payments, e-Signature and SieSmart on the Go – the mobile version of SFS’ industry-leading online tool. Changes like these have already been welcomed by vendors whose feedback shows significant savings of time and money. The relocation of the Vendor Finance sales support team will enable SFS to build on its reputation as ‘not just another funder’ which continues to develop innovative tools and solutions, to maintain a market leading position

Jo Harris, Head of Sales – Vendor Finance, SFS said: “Our existing team in Manchester provides an excellent foundation for us to build on. With over 100 years’ SFS experience between them, they are truly embedded within our business and are passionate about delivering outstanding service to our customers. No matter what the economic environment we remain fully supportive of our vendors because we value the relationships we’ve built.

“This relocation presents an exciting new opportunity for the SFS team to deliver an improved level of customer support whilst also strengthening our commitment for growth, stability and service excellence.”
