Centre of Excellence

Working capital is the link between your profit and cash balance. Optimising the working capital cycle will provide you with a valuable competitive advantage.

Cash is the lifeblood of your business, but do you know exactly how long a sales dollar and a profit dollar takes to become a cash dollar, and why? Are your inventory management practices geared to maximise cash flow? Could you be doing more to communicate and embed a “cash culture” within your business?

How can we help?

Our Cash and Working Capital Management Centre of Excellence can work with your team to:

  • Implement cash controls to effectively track, save and generate cash
  • Improve forecasting processes and accuracy
  • Calculate the potential cash flow improvement to quantify the “size of the prize”, then prioritise improvement initiatives
  • Implement best practice reporting to sustain improvements
  • Design incentive packages linked to cash flow
