Are You Confident With Your Current Cash Flow Forecasting Strategy?

Please join us for a Cash Flow Forecasting Workshop!

Overview

Cash flow forecasting is one of the most critical aspects of running a business of any size. Knowing when money is coming in or going out and how much is being exchanged is often the deciding factor when it comes to making key business decisions. Whether your organization is in growth mode, status quo, losing ground or survival mode, cash flow forecasting is critical to your success. Does your organization have an effective cash flow forecasting strategy in place, or do you find yourself…

• Constantly running short of cash due to out of control expenses?
• Falling victim to inadequate planning for purchases, upgrades or replacement of big-ticket items — when it comes time to purchase, there’s not enough cash?
• Unaware of the cost associated with slow-paying and no-paying customers?
• Unable to pay bills or payroll even though sales and profit are up?
• Facing increased risks or missed opportunities associated with projecting cash flow too high… or too low?
