Generate Cash Flow – Come Rain or Shine

Sometimes when it rains, it pours. Businesses have been scrambling to manage the multi-dimensional impacts of the pandemic – with CFOs and teams working round the clock to better manage liquidity and stabilize the business. Today, freeing up cash trapped across receivables, payables and inventories is a critical priority to survive, revive and thrive.

Optimizing working capital will release the much-needed cash to fund expansion and growth while building agility and resilience. However, data and functional silos, non-standardized processes, limited access to real-time insights and inadequate adoption of digital and analytics are hampering organizations’ efforts.

WNS Working Capital Analytics is a powerful, flexible cloud-based solution to increment cash flow and improve businesses’ working capital performance. Through what-if simulations and prescriptive analytics it enables enhanced decision-making and identifies opportunities to unlock cash and boost the bottom line.


Optimize Working Capital, Enhance Free Cash Flow, and Rise to Every Challenge

Through a customized approach, the solution helps identify favorable payment terms with suppliers, take advantage of discounts or rebates, process invoices on time, and more – to increase payables. We enable Finance leaders to generate actionable insights through intelligent analysis of accounts payable data and become cash-fit in every kind of business climate.

How Do We Do It?

  • Early Payments Reduction - Moving all possible early payments to on-time payments

  • One Vendor One Term - Having only one highest possible term for each vendor

  • Terms Rationalization - Reducing the number of payment terms and negotiation opportunities within specific expense categories

  • Discount Optimization - Identifying lost discount opportunities and ways to optimize discount utilization and enabling insight-assisted decision making on whether to avail of specific discounts or conserve cash

  • Payment Monetization - Identifying high-volume and low-valued invoices for payment monetization opportunities

  • Pay-run Optimization - Finding opportunities to improve working capital by optimizing payment frequency

One-of-a-kind predictive / prescriptive models and what-if simulators
