Since the onset of the pandemic, finance executives have been operating in survival mode. A few months back, the liquidity crisis triggered by the sharp disruption in economic activities prompted organisations to rush toward cash to keep operations going.

In this upcoming webinar from HighRadius, our expert Mark Harrison, Founder & CEO at Callisto Grand will share their insight on how to develop and execute a turnaround strategy for the order to cash which will strengthen the cash culture across the organisation to stay ahead in the new economy.

‘Work from home’ is here to stay. With the onset of COVID-19, businesses across the globe have had almost a 100% switch to a remote working environment and according to a number of surveys, it is going to be the new normal. Leading a credit and collections team that had previously relied heavily on office equipment, paper-based data, and cross-departmental interactions for their daily operation, is a challenge that requires more strategic thinking and intensive planning.

1. Approach - Why a company should consider both an indirect FP&A forecast and a direct bottom-up forecast
2. Data - How data could be used to create an objective A/R and A/P
3. Modeling - How to ensure you are utilizing the right models for each category
4. Variance - Why having variance analysis over multiple time horizons can increase your credibility with your CFO
While there is no "silver bullet" available to solve every company's cash forecasting roadblocks, having the right processes in place is a good start. AI is bringing a new focus to cash forecasting with brand new solutions for age-old processes.
What and how you measure something will vary depending on your business, industry, and goals. It starts with a detailed self-assessment of your existing cash forecasting processes. This is essential to isolate gaps in your performance and identify opportunities for improvement. A better forecast can directly reveal potential liquidity constraints ahead so that the treasury department can proactively take mitigating actions.
The Cash Forecasting Maturity Model can help decision-makers perform an in-depth evaluation of their current cash forecasting processes and identify clear next steps to become best-in-class.
Join Tracey Ferguson Knight, a 25+ years treasury practitioner and consultant, and Juan Saudino, VP of Professional Services at HighRadius as they take you through the Cash Forecasting Maturity Model and builds robust process areas regardless of your organization’s size and complexity.
About 80% of manufacturers expect that the pandemic will have a negative financial impact on their business, according to a survey of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). The collapse in demand is producing a significant cash slump throughout industries. While attempting to counter this intense pressure on working capital, finance leaders might resort to aggressive strategies to deal with their customers. Although this might feed the short-term cash forecasting goal, it will harm the company’s financial health in the long run.
Join us for this session where Bill Weiss, VP Credit and Collections will facilitate the discussion around how finance, A/R, treasury, and credit leaders can work together to balance growth, profitability, and risk.
During this session, we will discuss:
- Global financial trends: Negative interest rates, demand-supply shock, and the anticipated change in operations
- Customer portfolio assessment and credit policy revision to balance credit risk and revenue growth
- Safeguarding financials in the long run with a framework focused on proactive collections and customer satisfaction delivery
As more and more customers are adopting pushback strategies to delay payments owing to restricted cash flow, collections leaders need to ensure that their teams are empowered with the right tools and strategies to collect past-due invoices on time.
Join this session as Camila Durante, Credit and Collections Coordinator, L'Oréal to learn how your team could pivot their collections operations in the new normal to ensure faster collections while prioritizing customer experience.
