Working Capital is key in every organization, because especially in the cases of manufacturers and merchandisers f there is a lot of money tied up in accounts receivable and inventories.

How you manage that capital can be critical to your liquidity and profitability.

The recent crisis has resulted in uncertainty with respect to how businesses can continue to survive in the new working conditions of supply chain disruptions.

Due to this, there is a need for companies to gain maximum visibility of their liquidity situation, develop foresight into working capital cycle activities and reassess the adequacy of their funding lines and cash inflows/outflows.

Difficulty in socialising with banks, risk aversion to lending, increase in credit downgrades is leading companies to evaluate alternative methods of financing.
