Find out how Agicap provides Soleil en Toit with concrete solutions for managing and anticipating its cash flow.

Being able to anticipate cash flow thanks to an adapted tool

"For years I had been asking my accountant for a tool, an Excel spreadsheet that would allow me to manage cash flow and above all to anticipate cash flow" but it didn't really work. Excel spreadsheets are time-consuming and increase the risk of errors because many elements cannot be automated. Geoffrey Tangui, Raphaël's account manager at the Laydernier bank, part of the Crédit du Nord group, recommended that he uses Agicap. 

"This tool allows me to forecast my cash flow over a longer or shorter period of time, to have this vision of my cash flow. It saves us time on our cash management.
