First finding: high potential for impressive WCM results
Experience from our consultation activities shows that there are ways of optimizing working capital in virtually every company, be it in terms of receivables and liabilities or with regard to inventories in commercial and manufacturing companies. Impressive results can be achieved by implementing the appropriate solutions. This can be seen for example in the following cases from PostFinance’s WCM consultation activities:
Case 1: in a manufacturing company with a sales volume of 150 million francs a year, factoring enabled tied-up capital to be reduced by 25 million francs, and finance charges to be cut by 6 percent (WACC) to 1.2 percent (see illustration, figures for illustrative purposes only).
