Working capital management

Most companies can release significant amounts of cash locked up in operations and sustainably increase their profitability and company value by managing working capital more actively.

The fundamental principles of Working Capital Management are clear: reduce the capital employed and improve efficiency in the areas of receivables, inventories and payables. Practical implementation, however, is a challenging task on the one hand due to conflicts inherent to cross-functional and trans-sectorial issues, and on the other because of the high complexity of individual optimization measures.

If this is your requirement

Additional funding requirements due to increased working capital driven by business growth
Lack of visibility on cash and working capital performance across the organization, and entire working capital cycle
Lack of cash awareness across departments, with no working capital targets and incentives
High levels of inventory
High levels of overdue receivables and bad debt write-offs

How Bizminder can help

Our team of process experts will assist you in developing independent reviews and strategic plans to asses & manage inventory, manage receivables and plan payables effectively.
