To manage cash flow effectively, businesses must manage both assets & liabilities. It is increasingly important for the business to use its cash flow as a strategic financial tool within its business strategy to grow the business. The two sides to managing cash are the businesses sales and purchases resulting in its assets & liabilities.
The efficient billing and collecting of payments for goods or services sold is half of a commercial business’s cash equation, the other half is what that business owes for its purchases of goods or services from a supplier.
Today, Miria transforms paper based accounts payable processing and expense transactions, or what a business owes, by enabling businesses of all sizes to intelligently automate the capture, approval, reconciliation, payment, compliance and reporting of financial transactions.
By managing what you owe to suppliers/vendors more efficiently, you realize the benefits of standardization and financial content controls in your business operation to free up working capital and grow your business.
