One of the early presidents of Sun Microsystems nearly 30 years ago said enterprise servers were like teenage sex – everybody talks about it, but no one does it right. I could say the same thing for short-term cash flow forecasting. Cash flow forecasting doesn’t need to be hard, especially when using the right tool.
Our guest was Blaine Bertsch, the co-founder of Dryrun. Here are questions and comments raised during the interview:
- Where did the name Dryrun come from?
- The application can handle consolidations, multiple currencies, scenario analysis, and import data from other sources.
- Blaine addresses who the ideal client is.
- Customers from 70 countries are using this tool.
- This system does not choke on serious cash volatility.
- Under the current pandemic, there has been an uptick in growth.
- Will the habit of cash flow forecasting drop after the pandemic?
- How long does it take to implement the software?
- The tool even integrates with Pipedrive.
- Can one customer run multiple models or only one?
Blaine’s Favorite Book
I like asking start-up founders about their favorite books. The first book that popped into Blaine’s mind when I asked the question was The E-Myth Revisited by Michael Geber.
Speaking of Books …
We ran out of time, otherwise, I would have asked Blaine about his book. He’s the author of Pandemic Cash Flow. I will be reviewing it soon.
A Quick Shoutout
My interview never happens without the help of Jeremy (JD) Burke. He’s the Director of Business Development at Dryrun.
Jeremy recently reached out to me on LinkedIn. During some back-and-forth messages, I was interested in interviewing him for the show. But he recommended the co-founder instead, Blaine.
Jeremy, a big tip of the cap. Keep being awesome.
