Cash is King—And So is Your Supply Chain: How Mid-Market Companies Can Optimize Supply Chain Operations for Strong Cash Flow and Focused Growth

For companies of all sizes and across all industries, cash is not only crucial, it’s king. Just to survive, businesses have to carefully manage their cash flow, making sure that payments aren’t going out faster than resources are coming in.

There are a number of ways companies can automate and optimize their supply chains to improve cash flow, such as building strong relationships and implementing new technology. But it should be noted that making the decision to invest in technology or update a supply chain process is a cash flow decision in itself, and should thus be weighed carefully.

It is important to realize that the cost of a supply chain or cash flow failure is, in most cases, significantly higher than even the highest price tags for these investments. With that in mind, supply chain solutions and automation technologies are more often than not worth the investment for growing mid-market companies.

This white paper looks at the importance of cash flow management, especially vital for mid-market companies in the current economic landscape. Due to their size, mid-market companies have a smaller financial cushion than their larger competitors, which means they have a reduced margin of error, a thinner cushion for tough financial situations, and a smaller investment pool for funding growth.

Download the guide for more information on why you should optimize supply chain operations to improve cash flow, including explanations on how seeking out supply chain efficiencies, managing cash flow through managing inventory, and investing in new technologies can help your bottom line.  Read More
