Purchasing co-operatives, associations and franchise systems are always faced with new challenges based on continuously changing market conditions. Our customers rely on the many decades of experience of Arvato Financial Solutions as partner and central regulation service provider with a strong credit rating, independent of banks, so that they are prepared to meet the demands of competitive pressure, payment defaults and tightly calculated margins.
Central regulation is the bundling of payment flows between suppliers (creditors) and members (debtors), e.g. of a purchasing co-operative at regular regulation deadlines taking over the protection against loss on receivables (del credere).
Central regulation offers added values for all parties
As has been proved, the participation in a central regulation leads to the sustainably increased satisfaction of the affiliated contractual partners. The catalogue of services comprises the central debtor and creditor management as well as an individual paper- and online-based information management. As the central clearing house, Arvato Financial Solutions settles outstanding debts within the framework of the terms of payment granted, while at the same time assuming 100% of the default risk to the suppliers, and thus assumes credit rating management and provides commercial credit insurance in the event of damage.
The members benefit from extended payment targets while completely taking into account the claim for discount, simplified online-based complaint processing and full control options of their payments. Through the transparent processes and the clear reduction of the administrative workload in day-to-day business, the participants of central regulation can concentrate fully on their core business.

Benefits for members
Purchasing advantages through more favourable conditions and higher bonuses by means of sales concentration
Simple and uncomplicated participation
Interested suppliers and members can enquire about the personal advantages of central regulation at their association or their co-operative and request the corresponding contracts. Admission to the central regulation takes place after a short examination of the necessary documents by Arvato Financial Solutions – rapidly and free of charge.
Transparent process – from ordering to regulation
The supplier sends the ordered goods and the original invoice to the member as usual. Parallel to the original invoice, the supplier submits the invoice details per remote data transmission to an arranged interface at Arvato Financial Solutions. At the end of a recording period, a posting log is made available to all parties. The member can make any possibly incurred complaints/corrections in the online portal directly with the aid of an objection code where necessary as well as entries for necessary self-credits and self-charges in the system. Only confirmed invoices will be regulated by Arvato Financial Solutions.
