MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Many small businesses struggle to find capital to expand their businesses in this tough economy. Outright, the leader in bookkeeping and tax software for online sellers, has partnered with Kabbage, the leader in providing financing to online businesses, to provide Outright's customers with the working capital needed to grow their businesses.
"In today's climate, banks and credit card companies are stricter than ever with lending requirements. This puts a hardship on small business owners, making it difficult for them to expand and grow their business," said Steven Aldrich, CEO of Outright. "We have recognized this challenge and sought a partnership that would address our customers' desire to grow and succeed. We're excited that Kabbage has developed a tailored solution for our customers."
Kabbage uses Outright's transactional data on an anonymous basis to help qualify and approve small businesses for cash to grow. Upon pre-qualification, the businesses go through an automated and painless application process to receive working capital, typically accessing their cash in less than 10 minutes.
"What's a toolbox without the right tools?" said Danni Ackerman of http://www.TheDanniApp.com. "Running my eBay business without Kabbage and Outright would be like building a house without hammer and nails! With this new integration between the two companies that allows me to pre-qualify for funding, it is going to make things so much easier for my business."
"We're thrilled to partner with Outright, a company that has consistently focused on providing the critical financial tools that online businesses need to understand their business," said Rob Frohwein, CEO of Kabbage.
