Calculate cash flow
The cash flow tool, found at www.postnl.nl/cashflow, offers businesses a simple way of calculating their cash flow by entering their annual revenues, payment term and the average time it takes customers to pay invoices. The tool then shows how many days a company has to wait for its invoices to be paid and how much it can gain financially if invoices are paid faster. PostNL sends the SME an e-mail with recommendations, such as issuing invoices more quickly, sending reminders sooner, introducing a shorter payment term, and running an advance credit check.
Carlos Mendes Aguiar, SME Director at PostNL: "The cash flow tool helps SMEs create transparency in the collection process. A few simple changes are often all it takes to achieve positive results and free up cash." PostNL is active in the entire invoice chain and assist SMEs in improving their billing, from printing and sending invoices to collecting unpaid invoices.
