Covid-19: Sidetrade Offers Its AI to Help SMEs
Sidetrade helps SMEs in the battle to collect cash with a free offer, CashControl
Sidetrade, the Artificial Intelligence platform dedicated to accelerating company revenue and cashflow, is now offering their accounts receivable platform free of charge to small and medium-sized enterprises to help them to collect cash more quickly in these difficult times. Inspired by Rishi Sunak, British Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sidetrade recognises the urgent needs of smaller UK businesses, and wants to help out. The free solution, called CashControl, offers SMEs sophisticated new technology, comparable to that used by large corporations, to overcome the challenge of getting paid during the crisis.
British Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak addressed the nation, setting out a package of urgent economic measures to support businesses and employees. He recognized Covid-19 as a public health emergency, and also an economic emergency. “It will be won through a collective national effort,” he said.

Businesses in a range of industries are working to get SMEs through the emergency. Amongst them stands Sidetrade, who understands how vital cashflow is to the survival of SMEs in an economic crisis.
Lengthening of B2B credit terms, inability to post or receive invoices and reminder letters, unreachable debtors due to containment measures, disorganisation of teams not accustomed to working remotely, loss of control over their arrears… Cash flow is under high pressure, especially that of SMEs.
Given the threat to the economy, tech companies like Sidetrade are joining a vast movement of citizen solidarity to support SMEs. Sidetrade is making a special free offer, called “CashControl”, to help SMEs control and secure their cash. CashControl is powered by Sidetrade’s exclusive artificial intelligence technology, used by leading corporations.
“For small businesses to survive, especially in an economic downturn, they must get paid. The Public authorities are right to hold payers, especially large companies, accountable. With the outbreak of the pandemic, SMEs’ first priority was business continuity; the next priority is collecting accounts receivable. The following weeks will see whether or not cash, their lifeblood, comes in. Sidetrade will be there for them. We consider it our duty to stand by them in these unprecedented circumstances by providing AI technology that will make a real difference.”

Sidetrade has taken their Artificial Intelligence technology designed for large businesses, and rescaled it for SMEs. Sidetrade’s CashControl solution is available free of charge, until 30 June 2020, to any company with a turnover of between €8M and €500M. Driven by powerful machine learning algorithms, CashControl has unique features, such as unlimited dematerialised dunning letters, and automatic collaborative payment schedules for difficult cases.
CashControl meets SMEs’ needs to improve the order-to-cash process through digitisation. The solution is based on Sidetrade’s AI tech named Aimie.
