In contrast to the new cashflow forecasting and cash management category, the big platforms had a negligible presence among the specialist forecasting cagegory.

Xero and QuickBooks gained a share of the votes for helping users to keep an eye on their cash position, but when it comes to more detailed forecasting, the platforms do not currently match the specialist apps in terms of user recommendation. 

AccountingWEB head of insight Julian Green commented: “Our recent deep dive research indicates that more progressive, small firms and larger ones are using specialist forecasting and apps and are having some success in generating fees off associated service lines. This appears to suggest greater functionality of best in class solutions outweighs the expediency of the forcasting tools built into the accounting platforms.
