Typical Tools Data Sources for Cash Flow
Forecasting
  • What do you use?
  • Receipt Forecasts
  • Disbursement Forecasts
  • What can be done differently to either
  • Increase accuracy or timing of information
  • Change patterns
  • Speed up availability and/or hold onto money
    longer

Consider Alternative Cash Management Tools -
Receipts
  • Goal Understand the day-to-day activity and
    trends associated with major receipt streams. We
    will look at the tools you are currently using to
    collect the cash. Ask the question How can we
    collect our receivables quicker, more
    efficiently, and with greater predictability?
  • Analysis Documents Bank statements for major
    receipt accounts and analysis statements over the
    past 12 months.
  • Possible Receipt Tools
  • Check Transformation (Check 21)
  • Electronic (ACH, Wire)
  • Lockbox
  • Merchant Services
  • Web-Based Receipts
  • Funds Concentration

    streams. Look at the tools currently being used
    to disburse cash. Ask the question What can be

    greater predictability?
  • Analysis Documents Bank statements for major
    disbursement accounts over 12 months. Analysis
    statements for the same accounts for the same
    period.

  • Electronic (ACH/Wire)
  • Purchasing/Travel Cards

    tools

    pegged to specific outflow dates (rather than
    disbursing money daily)

    outflows
  • Track changes of trends over time
  • New more predictable patterns emerge
  • More timely information available
  • Incorporate these into forecast
