Intelligent Cash Flow

About INTELLIGENT CASH FLOW

It is a powerful cash flow simulator that guides the user to easily identify current income sources and expenses, and performs any number of short-term what-if scenarios. While traditional comprehensive financial planning software is excellent for producing multi-decade cash flow projections, it typically falls short of allowing individuals to feel confident that they understand the financial impact of a potential upcoming life-transition. Individuals may feel overwhelmed due to the complexity and sheer volume of data contained in the many pages of data and graphs that typically comprise a traditional financial plan. INTELLIGENT CASH FLOW™ solves this problem by providing guided scenarios that identify key factors to consider for an upcoming life transition and illuminating the changes that take place in that transition as a moment in time.
