On the expenses side, you can see the impact of varying options that you can do to your expenses such as renegotiation your company's cell phone plan or internet monthly plan. You can also see what happens if you delay your payments, performed any payroll cuts or simply put some expenses on hold (or cut them completely). CashFlowTool makes it simple for your to see this direct impact on your cash flow. Simply go into the Cash Flow Details and update the transactions below the chart as needed to immediately see your cash flow position.
You can also model any changes to your income (cash in) include discounts that you have given your customers, late payments you have negotiated, lost business or simply a general sales decline. Using the same process above in expenses what-ifs, use CashFlowTool to immediately see the impact on your future cash flow for the next 30/60/90 days.
