As today’s companies experience a “capital superabundance,” now is a critical time to smartly invest available funds. A new paper by Tompkins International, Employing Available Capital Wisely: How Operational Excellence Creates Economic Value, shares how reinvesting capital into operational and supply chain capabilities will increase free cash flow and help companies boost their overall long-term business value.

“Historically, companies have cared more about short-term financial results instead of considering the long-term business value,” says Gene Tyndall, Executive Vice President, Tompkins International. “By investing capital into supply chains, businesses will achieve profitable growth, margin improvement, and capital efficiency.”

Long-term value begins with a smart investment strategy that considers new channels, competition, supply chain risks, and product development, among others.

“What many people do not realize is that 90 percent of strategic business plans are not implemented as intended, and thus operations are not improved effectively,” explains Tyndall.

To be successful, companies need to strategically employ available capital into their operations, which increases productivity and puts them ahead of competitors. Long-term value takes time to create, yet it is sustainable if executed effectively.
