DOT manages and forecasts cash flow with Vanguard Predictive Planning

The Kansas Department of Transportation (DOT) wanted to build a forecasting system that would automate and streamline the spreadsheet-based system it had been using. Updating the interrelated spreadsheet model, originally created by an economics expert who worked for the department, was a six-week process — data were collected, manipulated, and formatted into a cash forecast using more than 20 interrelated spreadsheets and manually incorporated project data. Vanguard Predictive Planning was able to address the following requirements for the new system:


  • An effective tool to manage and predict cash flow
  • Overall program management, project bidding, and cash management decision support
  • Support for a 10-year, $8 billion highway program

"Vanguard Software was able to improve our forecast accuracy by over 50%!"
