Invest in liquidity planning with Trinity TMS during a crisis?
“So far we have got along very well with EXCEL, why should we do something different now?
Our specialist has built a complex planning sheet over the years and continuously optimized them. If something is unclear to us, we can always ask him. However, he has been in quarantine since last Tuesday and we all hope that he will soon return to the office healthy … “
We hope that this does not apply to your company and that we can all get through the pandemic in good health. Of course, a spreadsheet can be of great help in planning finances and is usually cheaper than using professional planning software. Nevertheless, there are many aspects that speak in favor of switching to an audit-proof system that is easy to use by all users:
An integrated system like the Trinity TMS stores the cash flows from all financial transactions in a single database. This means all interest and redemption payments of a multi-year loan are immediately available in the medium and long-term financial planning but also in the short-term cash forecast. There is no need to transfer the data and record it again, which can result in errors.
The same applies to cash flows from money market, foreign exchange transactions, securities, letters of credit and guarantees. In addition, data (creditors / debtors / rent / tax / salaries etc.) from ERP system(s) can automatically be transferred in the background to the Trinity planning module.
In order to obtain, as complete as possible, a basis for decision-making, additional manual entries or changes can be made by authorized users, both in the head office and at local subsidiaries.
As a private cloud solution, the Trinity TMS can be accessed via the internet, both from the office and from the home office. The planning data of individual companies can be consolidated across different levels in order to optimally and proactively carry out regional or company-wide financial planning for the next few days, weeks and months.
Planning is as easy to use as EXCEL but it can do a lot more. The risk of accidentally destroying the planning is almost zero and it is always clear from which source the data originate.
Speaking of “risk”: of course, in liquidity planning with Trinity TMS, simulations, e.g. for different interest rate, rate and turnover developments so that “worst case” scenarios can be avoided by initiating suitable measures at an early stage. If foreign currencies play a role, the exposure analysis and automatic calculation of the hedging ratios’ provide valuable support for financial management.
Later, the plans in Trinity can be filled with actual data using rule-based automatisms and deviation analyzes can be carried out to determine the cause and continuously improve the planning quality.
