Investing in financial solutions to improve your cash flow forecasts is an important step towards running a successful business.

Additionally, you can create a branded wallet that gives customers a personal touch when they are making a payment. In the end, the more payment options you offer, the better chance you have of getting paid on time.
- Pre-empting selling
Whilst lockdown seems a distant memory, businesses continue to grapple with the challenges posed by the economic wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. One strategy to improve liquidity in light of this looming pressure is to offer customers vouchers and gift cards and sell ahead. This pay-it-forward approach not only improves cash flow but could become a common strategy even after the pandemic passes. Gift cards are not just a solution for retailers; other industries like the travel industry have begun to offer paid memberships that offer discounts on post-COVID travel plans. Administrating gift card-type promotions can be an effective strategy to improve cash flow while also providing customers with extra incentive to purchase.
