Cash flow forecasting for retail

Understand how your cash flow changes seasonally and make smarter, more sustainable growth decisions for your retail business.

Scenario plan for ‘what ifs’

Understand how a new stock purchase, opening a new product line, a quiet month, or a new hire will affect the financial health of your business.

Budgets vs actuals

Compare expectations for cash in and out to find out what actually happened.

Uncover unnecessary costs

Easily find the areas of your business where you can trim the fat to increase profit.

Easily manage seasonal changes

Float’s predictive models show you how much cash you need to put aside to continue a seamless operation when seasonal downturns arrive.

Create model scenarios to understand how much stock you need throughout the season to match demand.
