Industry Today: Financial Tips for Manufacturers During COVID-19

Industry Today recently published an article by David Kloess, a Partner in Bennett Thrasher’s Financial Reporting & Assurance practice. In the article, Kloess advises manufacturers on how to manage cash flow and create efficiencies in the wake of COVID-19.

Kloess writes, “This crisis creates opportunities to innovate. Nothing is truer than necessity being the mother of invention, and making meaningful changes to forecasting, justifying costs and redefining processes could determine the difference between a business that makes it…and one that doesn’t.”

The manufacturing industry is committed to overcoming challenges associated with the coronavirus pandemic and taking advantage of opportunities to be innovative. Kloess’ tips for manufacturing companies to navigate these unprecedented times include:

  1. Utilize government stimulus programs to free up cash flow;
  2. Predict and drive results with effective financial planning and analysis;
  3. Use the insights uncovered by FP&A to create new efficiencies; and
  4. Consider implementing variable compensation.
