Understand the Cash Coming in and Going Out of Your Business

Cash is the most important KPI you have right now. Normally you wouldn’t need to track the cash that comes in and out of your accounts each day, but during these times, you need to be laser-focused on it. And it extends beyond merely the cash coming into your account. Revenue is going to slow down, so you must ensure you know how your cash level ebbs and flows.

Look Ahead at Revenue Through Forecasting

Being proactive during this time is critical to your recovery. Forecasting, budgeting, and looking at different scenarios is a must. What happens if you lose 10% of your revenue versus 30%?

Stabilize Your Financials in an Unsecure Economy

Many MSPs only have a month of cash reserves on hand, making it vital to have a crystal-clear understanding of their company’s financial operations. Determine your cash burn rate, gain visibility into your finances, and cut expenses to build resilience.

Streamline Your Processes for Improved Cash Flow

Cash flow worries keeping you up at night? Ultimately, nothing is more important to optimize your company’s cash flow than your billing and invoicing process. Having the right tools makes it easier to track time, bill clients, and get paid faster.

“The ability to use invoice routing and workflow processes has allowed us to cut several days off of our invoicing cycle which in turn accelerates cashflow by several days. Increasing our cashflow rate by 15% equals about $150,000 for our business”
