Cash Forecasting & Management
Cash Forecasting & Management
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic we came across many organisations that did not see the full benefit of cash forecasting and cash management. Attitudes have changed however, and many organisations have rapidly looked to enhance their forecasting and management of cash.
The rationale was clear – organisations needed to maximise their cash reserves and in doing so minimise the cash burn, particularly during lockdown.
We believe that this discipline is critical in any organisation, in good times and bad, and should be maintained as ‘BAU’, even once the pandemic is under control. Robust, accurate cash flow information underpins operational, tactical and strategic decision making.
The way we do this is different in every client scenario. Sometimes a lighter touch with just a few refining tweaks is appropriate. In other cases, a more transformational approach is required. In all cases our clients find value in gaining new confidence in their management of information and processes. Increasingly our clients also ask us to help them demonstrate these improvements to key financial stakeholders, aiding their credibility and enhancing trust in the process.
Our expertise is also used in situations where real financial distress is emerging. We are adept at stepping in, shoulder to shoulder, to work with management teams on cash stabilisation. This can be critical to maximising the runway for available future options. It also ensures financial stakeholders have a clearer view of the road ahead, ensuring the preferred path forward is not closed off prematurely.
