    Cashflow that your clients finally understand

    Emma Fox

    Having offered cashflow forecasting for years it has always been a sore subject – until I discovered Float. It is simple to set up and use and your clients actually understand it. It works all around the actual movement of money. It is easy to amend budgets and projected payment dates for sales and purchase invoices.

    Clear, accurate cash forecasting


    This product pulls invoice-level data from Xero and presents it in a clear way. My clients can quickly understand how it works (it has a familiar layout, both the chart of accounts and the spread sheet look).

    Forecasting is easy, as it adding what-if scenarios.

    It’s only as good as the data that goes in, so you do have to keep Xero reconciled regularly. That’s a prompt to keep your Xero data flowing, and that can only be a good thing.

    Float provides a window into your cash situation, and from there you can implement various strategies and apps to improve that situation.

    Float Review


    Float is easy to integrate and set up. It is easy to understand for clients and a good option for short term cashflow forecasting and allows you to do scenario planning quickly. The support and help is excellent too.
