“I believe people are like boats.” With that I’ve started many a seminar and webcast. After a brief pause, I relieve the tension by saying, “They toot the loudest when they’re in a fog.” Ambiguity, tardy information, and just plain situational ignorance can keep many a decision-maker in a fog. However, because of the critical need to know how much and when cash will be flowing into and out of the bank, CFOs need crystal clear visibility. And business Intelligence dispels the haze and sharpens the perception of what is happening. From cash collections and revenue projections to labor and non-labor spend management, operations and finance executives alike can know almost up to the minute how much cash is flowing in and how much is flowing out.
