Proactive Versus Reactive Budgeting for Reliable Decision

Proactive Versus Reactive Budgeting for Reliable Decision

Do you know your business’ monthly expenses? There is a big difference between a general idea of finances and down to the minute accuracy. The impact of COVID-19 on small companies will grow for years to come; prepared versus unprepared and proactive versus reactive. The resounding theme throughout the business community is those with a proactive budgeting system had better outcomes. The negative effects of reactive budgeting cause major economic shock.

Reactive budgeting

What is reactive budgeting? Reactive budgeting is decision-making in response to circumstances. Decision-making based on knee-jerk outdated records trigger a cascade of loss. Bills unpaid, partially filled spreadsheets, and data entry fatigue are reasons that drive organizations to seek better cash flow management solutions.

As seen with the recent COVID-19 outbreak, most reactive business owners thought they could ride out the pandemic. Unfortunately, many did not have a positive result. While some organizations closed operations temporarily, other closures were permanent. Of the small businesses that remained operational, those with less financial fragility continued operations either making money or preventing loss. Concurrent data with precise expenses prepares a company for unexpected financial pivots.
