The value of an accurate cash forecast is very well understood, but for many organizations the reality of developing an accurate cash forecast seems to be beyond their reach. While most treasury professionals understand the benefits of reducing overdraft facilities to better manage bank costs, finding trapped cash to invest in the business and/or reimburse debt, and optimizing interest income/expense – many are still dealing with the lack of visibility or integration with systems that control banks and their ERP system.

- Provided you with some immediate helpful pointers on how to improve your cash forecast
- Discussed how to proactively get ahead of those obstacles in order to deliver a more accurate cash forecast that provides true value for your organization
