WCM analysis

An in-depth comparison highlights potential for optimization

The WCM analysis delivers an independent situation assessment of your working capital management. Your company obtains valuable information that can be used to optimize performance, as well as estimate its impact and feasibility.

The WCM analysis enables you to measure your company’s maturity level when it comes to working capital management. Through the analysis, individual strengths and weaknesses can be identified. Your company is assessed in the four performance fields: accounts receivable, accounts payable, liquidity management and inventory management. The individual performance fields are weighted according to the relevant industry. Both the balance sheet figures and the processes are taken into consideration.

The analysis is based on a questionnaire which was developed by the Supply Chain Finance Lab at the University of St. Gallen. A comprehensive internal database with data from all previous analyses is the source for the key figure and process benchmarks. This broad data basis facilitates the comparison of your company’s performance figures with the average figures of all companies and with the average figures from your own sector.
