Cash flow forecast templates have long been a staple of the
accounting profession.

However, these tools have typically left a lot to be desired—and there’s now a better way for accountants to generate forward-thinking cash flow predictions.

Download the article to learn where cash flow forecasts fall short and why firms should instead turn to forward-thinking prediction software.



"Futrli is a powerful, intuitive, and easy to use application that helps me add to the value I give my clients whether it be metrics, financial reporting, or cash flow projection. The staff are very responsive and super helpful. I highly recommend to accountants and CPAs that need a powerful tool to help them provide insight into their client's business."
