Timothée Clément, Country Manager in UK and Ireland at Agicap joins Kevin Appleby to discuss How to Implement a cashflow forecasting system.
Cashflow forecasting is one of the most important aspects of financial planning for any business. Unfortunately, it can also be one of the most difficult things to get right. Many businesses choose to use Excel to create their cashflow forecast, but this can often lead to mistakes and inaccurate data. In this episode, we discuss the benefits of using a cash flow forecasting app instead of Excel.
Having an accurate cashflow forecast is essential for any business, whether they are just starting out or have been running for years. Fortunately, new technology has made it easier than ever to create accurate forecasts.
One major benefit of using a cash flow forecasting app is that it eliminates user error when inputting data into spreadsheets. Excel spreadsheets require manual entry which leaves room for mistakes such as incorrect formulas or typos which can lead to inaccurate results. Cash flow forecasting apps automate much of this process so you don’t have to worry about making errors while entering data into your spreadsheet. This helps ensure that your projections are always accurate and up-to-date.
Agicap is one such system, and Kevin and Timothy discuss how you might go about switching from Excel, the change process you might go through, and the benefits to your business.
