A Cash-Management module from Estimation is believed to be the first software in the UK for cash book and cash-flow forecasting to fully address the special requirements of the construction industry. This software is designed for accounts packages in Estimation's Enterprise and Extreme families. Cash Management is suitable for all sizes of building-services contractors - single-service or multi-discipline. It provides a full cash-book package, with a single ledger for entering all sales and purchase payments and receipts, including nominal transactions. The package makes it much easier and quicker to reconcile multiple bank accounts and product cash-management reports. Cash Management also features complete cash-flow forecasting, including accounting practices that are unique to the construction industry, such as applications for payment, certificates and retention-release dates. Another feature enables information about contact with customers and suppliers to be logged and linked to reminders where appropriate, which is particularly helpful with credit control.
