SOME EXAMPLES OF WHAT WE DO
Need a deeper understanding of your cash flow? TAP consultants will use our proprietary Cash Flow Tool to help you map out your cash inflows and outflows to understand their timing and to determine if your business is generating sufficient funds to service daily operations, cover expenses, and fund future growth. Our consultants will also work with you to identify potential expense reduction opportunities and additional sources of income.
Do you have a gap between when you receive sales and when you have to pay your vendors? TAP consultants can help you analyze the timing of your cash inflows and outflows to adjust them and improve how you manage your business.
