FUNDING SOCIETIES, Southeast Asia's largest small and medium enterprise (SME) digital financing platform, has partnered with fintech startup Pantas to launch a pre-approved automated invoice financing facility for SMEs in Malaysia.

In a joint statement today, the parties said the solution will reduce the time spent on the end-to-end invoice financing process (from facility approval to money in the bank account) to as little as two business days, compared to the industry standard of several weeks. 

In addition, SMEs can also obtain a higher pre-approved limit by transacting more on Pantas, the statement said.
