Forecasting cash flow can be particularly challenging these days, particularly for leaders in the manufacturing industry. The cost of capital is rising. Reshoring efforts to combat supply chain uncertainty can be significant. Sustainability and security initiatives can straddle maintenance and growth priorities.


In this session, experts on the manufacturing category from leading global consulting firm Protiviti will provide an overview of the issues and trends that are having the most impact on how finance and operations leaders must approach their choices for critical capital investments. And we’ll examine how key capital allocation strategies, such as the proactive and continuous management of Capex investments aided by real-time data, can be a driving force in forecast accuracy, and ultimately put you in the best position to fund growth.


Additionally, we’ll provide a short demo of Finario, the world’s most trusted enterprise portfolio and capital management solution – with a particular focus on how it benefits manufacturing companies. This is one webinar you won’t want to miss.
