Short-Term Cash Flow Forecasting
Cash flow forecasting is a critical business process that enables companies to ensure better liquidity management and short-term investment and borrowing decisions. Corporate finance executives often rely on divisional forecasts, oftentimes presented in separate spreadsheets, to arrive at a finalized forecast. Driving cash flow planning from incorrect forecasts results in sub-optimal working capital management. It forces many companies to incur higher capital borrowing costs.
