Working Capital Management

Companies who excel in their management of working capital will have a real competitive advantage

Current uncertainties in the global economy and financial markets are putting increasing pressures on companies and their supply chains.

Working Capital Management ("WCM") initiatives release working capital and increase liquidity which companies can use for strategic investments or debt reduction. In addition, it enhances profitability due to an efficiency improvement in the processes and a reduction in capital cost.

Improving working capital also inevitably leads to a sustainable increase in Economic Profit / Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) and to a higher corporate value.
