Strategic Advantages of Good Cash Management

Cash management is critical to your business's success. It can reduce stress, improve earnings, and automate tasks to free your time for improving sales and managing margins.

A commonly overlooked source of capital for any business is its own balance sheet. Through proper cash management planning and/or working capital optimization, any business will see more opportunities to achieve cash balance targets, reduce costs, increase shareholder returns and fund growth.

We all know that we want to bring in cash quickly as possible by billing promptly, following up on overdue balances consistently, and requiring upfront deposits when available. It's when we add another level of complexity that additional insights can help your business.

So what are some best practices to improve your business's treasury management?

Using Checking Accounts that match your business's activities

It's a regular occurrence to see new customers come to Flagship Bank with account products that don't match the level of activity of their business. This can result in reduced or no interest earnings and/or increased monthly fee costs. Talk with a banker to discuss which account you are in and if there are better accounts for your business. It could save you hundreds or more a year in lost interest and increased fees.

Using ACH Services to collect Receivables and pay Payables

ACH Origination Services are a great way to reduce the cash cycle and improve your cash balances. Each day businesses are becoming more comfortable with and accustomed to electronic debits and credits. Talking with your recurring customers and vendors to set up these services can be a great way to reduce the manual processing times.

Using Zero Balance Accounts and Cash Sweeps

If your business is sitting on cash and is also borrowing from a line of credit, it would make sense to work with your banker on a sweep between your line of credit and your business checking account. You'll reduce the interest you pay and over a year, this could mean hundreds or thousands to your bottom line. Likewise, tying a savings account and checking account can also be way to maximize interest earnings by concentrating balances in a savings account earning interest.

Using Merchant Services and Business Credit Cards

Accepting credit cards at your business is another way to speed up funds availability and fund the growth of your business. Our Merchant Services partnership allows eligible customers with a Flagship business checking account to get next day availability on the credit cards they process for payment. Furthermore, working with cash back rewards credit cards are a great way to delay cash payment and earn rewards for your business. Check out our offerings to learn more about each.

Streamline Account Activities

Simplify your workflows with automatic notifications and transfers

A common practice to streamline regular and frequent activities is to set them up automatically. Using automatic notifications will reduce manual monitoring and free up time for higher value activities. We're always on the lookout for new tools and tips, so please feel free to contact our cash management department today to learn how we can save you some time.

Examples include recurring ACH services, automatic loan payments, bill payment, ZBA/sweeps and text or email alerts on your accounts.
