Cash flow forecasting

It’s impossible to see the future in a fast-paced and unpredictable business environment. But our CFO teams get close! Best-practice forecasting tools and techniques ensure that the cash balance at month-end does not catch you by surprise.

 

Drawing data from existing cloud accounting systems and pairing this with management expectations and data about cash inflows and outflows ahead, it’s possible to make accurate predictions about the future cash balance in your company. This helps you take appropriate action at the right time to make sure that you never run out of money as you scale..

Cash cycle optimization

Growth sucks cash – that’s the number one law of entrepreneurial gravity. As you grow, there will be a bigger and bigger ask of your available resources. Go from sale closed to money in the bank in the shortest time possible using proven tools and techniques. Turn industry-leading profitability into industry-leading cash generation!

 

Deploying tools like the Power of One and the Seven Levers help business owners to make continuous improvements to cash generating activities, to make sure that more working capital stays in the company for longer. A shorter working capital cycle means less reliance on short-term funding and more money available for distributions.
