In 2017, I wrote about Dryrun, mentioning in almost the same sentence what was then QuickBooks Desktop’s Cash-flow Projector, which I personally thought was a “good tool,” even though QuickBooks subsequently phased it out.
At that time, Dryrun was a relatively new tool that made cash-flow forecasting painless for QuickBooks Online. I wrote a reasonably good QBO App First Look feature about it, followed by an Advisor Alliance feature. And then I forgot about Dryrun until it was time for this July 2022 series.
Well, the current version of Dryrun still offers cash-flow forecasting for QBO as part of its financial modeling and cash management platform designed for financial professionals.
Of course, a lot has expanded and changed in five years, but this still is one of the best solutions you can use as a trusted advisor to bring your clients the business analytics they need.
With Dryrun, you can provide an advisory practice focused on monitoring, modeling and managing your client’s financial success. So, if you are looking for a way to grow or enhance your service offerings, this may be the tool to help you accomplish those goals for your practice.
You can easily monitor your client’s real-time financial data through integration with its accounting platform. The accounting systems that our Insightful Accountant readers commonly use, which Dryrun presently integrates, are QuickBooks Online, Xero, Sage Intacct and Oracle NetSuite.
As the data rolls in from one of these accounting systems, you will not only know what is going on in the present, but also what’s coming down the pike.
For example, Dryrun’s due date tracking helps the analysis and projection process. Also, it gives an extra level of visibility within the reported data since indicators are used to flag current, future, and overdue transactions.
As a result, you will quickly identify issues so you can make informed decisions based on accurate data and plan your strategies accordingly.
Dryrun is built around powerful scenario technology to offer you sophisticated cash-flow analysis and planning, which can be compared alongside your actual data. But you’re not limited to a single scenario; you can construct endless scenarios and forecast limitless possibilities.
So, it doesn’t matter if your client is overly complicated by multiple locations, multi-national tenancy, or multiple currencies; Dryrun has it handled.
While Dryrun makes it easy to compare your scenarios to determine which “what-if” is most likely to be the most promising path to take for business success, it also means you can see all the available options. This helps make informed decisions, and gives you and your clients the data and choices needed to guide that success.
And you will easily be able to manage your client’s financial success with regular updates to keep them aware of the present and the future (based on continuing projections), as well as valuable insights when things change unexpectedly.
In addition, you can use the built-in tools within Dryrun to start the next “what if” or “let’s discuss” conversation about the future of the client’s business.
As ProAdvisors, accountants, bookkeepers and business consultants, your clients need your advice about where their business is going. To provide that advice, you need the tools that give you an edge in providing services as a trusted advisor.
Dryrun is that tool. It gives you a highly visual platform to easily share the information your clients need to stay on top of their day-to-day operations and see what the future offers their business operations.
For more information, head over to the Dryrun website and either book a consultation or start a free trial. If you are interested in their formal Partner program, schedule a meeting with their Advisor team.
