Cash Projection Report

Cash Projection Report

Application Overview

 

The Cash Projection Report graph application facilitates Elliott reporting features by plotting the anticipated future revenue outlook of your organization. It processes information obtained from the A/R Open Item File, and creates a report that projects the amount each customer account will contribute to the overall projection within a given period of time. This resource can provide a powerful visual representation of important business variables such as the comparative amount of anticipated future gross receipts generated by your most valued customers. It can also be used as a tool to set organizational goals, and plan future resources.  

 

You can create a report that projects cash receipts generated in any combination of the following variables.

 

            A range of customers

            Projected cash receipts to be generated by a specified date.

            A Period of time that you define.

Projected cash receipts based on the current amounts generated in a given period, Year to date or both of these variables.

 

You may also choose to calculate the Projected Revenue based on the invoices' due dates or the customers average number of days to pay during the current year.  If one or more of your customers have a tendency to pay early or late, basing the report on average days to pay can provide a more realistic picture of when to expect cash receipts.
