As organisations grow more complex, so do their cashflow issues. It requires a coordinated effort to take the right steps to ensure that future cashflow forecasts can be projected both accurately and efficiently. Among the challenges you, as the CFO, face is keeping track of current cash balances, especially if your company maintains multiple bank accounts with different schedules for clearing funds. For finance teams, an even greater challenge is forecasting future cash balances, which are subject not only to broad economic influences, such as interest rate fluctuations, but also internal expectations, such as sales projections.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- Key factors and trends that have the greatest effect on your company’s cash holdings
- How you can enable your company to streamline cash management
- Best practices for forecasting cash reserves amid economic volatility
- Driver-based forecasting for cashflow, income statements, balance sheets and everything else
