"Absolutely essential to the operations of our business. Very easy to use. Great software."

You have control over your cash budgets

Fluidly takes the approach of trying to automatically predict what you’ll spend, based on historical averages and other data. On the other hand, Float lets you set your own budgets, which offers flexibility to growing businesses where cash flow can differ considerably from month to month.

According to an article by De Jong Phillips: “whilst AI is undoubtedly very clever, many businesses have lumpy and non-trending cash flows, meaning you have to individually turn off all the calculations Fluidly has already done”.

Budget variance reporting

Float offers a budget vs actuals report to give you insight into how well (or badly!) you are sticking to your budgets.

Bespoke scenarios

In Float you can make and customise any kind of scenario, while Fluidly uses pre-set scenarios such as hiring new staff or moving premises.

Cash flow for projects

Our latest release offers project-based forecasting which no other software on the market can do – this makes planning and understanding the impact of winning and losing projects possible in a couple of clicks.

Float makes budgeting and forecasting easy.
