The cable installation business can be very profitable - if managed properly. Most cable installers operate as subcontractors for large telecommunications or cable companies, such as AT&T, Adelphia or Comcast. This can be a great business model that makes a tidy profit for the cable installer. These companies make great customers and provide constant work and reliable payments. Although working for large companies can be a great source of revenue, business owners need to get used to the fact that they pay their invoices 30 to 60 days after the work is completed. Factoring receivables can provide you with a reliable and predictable cash flow. It provides you with a substantial advance on your invoices, ensuring that you have funds to pay employees and suppliers.
