Navigating Economic Uncertainty

Actionable Ideas

You can trust PNC’s strength, capabilities and advisory focus
to help you solve problems and move forward.

 

Borrow & Access Capital

  • Pull fixed assets out of your revolver and into an equipment facility to increase working capital availability.
  • Leverage your asset base to expand access to capital or increase revolver flexibility.
  • Unlock equipment equity and drive new working capital into higher return investments with a sale leaseback.
  • Lock in low interest rates with a refinance of current debt or interest rate hedging alternative.
  • Acquire remote work technologies quickly — even with a limited budget — through the use of an equipment line of credit.

Reduce Risk 

  • Take advantage of mobile apps to view your cash position in real time, monitor account activity and approve transactions.
  • Subscribe to email/SMS event notifications of important account activity.
  • Ensure you have fraud protection on your checking accounts.
  • Quickly and easily validate the existence, status, standing, ownership or control when onboarding a new payee or before you initiate a transaction through new account verification services.
  • Address the volatile currency market with new thinking around your foreign exchange strategy.

Improve Payment Flexibility

  • Take advantage of electronic payment options, including RTP, ACH, wire and credit cards.
  • Streamline check/invoice printing with outsourced solutions.
  • Review individual cardholder controls to ensure required spending requirements can be achieved.
  • Evaluate needs for additional cards for employees needing to make purchases directly on behalf of the company.

Optimize Cash Flow

  • Accelerate the collection of receivables and lower collection costs while improving cash flows with RTP®, the Real Time Payments program from The Clearing House.
  • Maximize your use of invoice automation to reduce manual processes.
  • Reduce touch points and streamline deposits with Remote Deposit.
  • Speed up posting and improve security if you receive checks on site with mobile deposit capabilities.
