Session Description

With the rapidly increasing aggregation and exchange of data – whether from client solution platforms or data transmissions between banks and corporations – banks are in a position to manage and analyze data as a value-add solution. Treasurers should consider how the data aggregated by their banks can be a valuable source of information that they can use strategically to benefit their organizations. At the very basic level banks recognize who paid their clients and who their clients paid. But as global data standards are gaining traction and adoption is seen across more and more banks, data as a solution, can be used to help manage working capital.

At this session, you will understand how aggregated data is helping Microsoft and other companies leverage data for:

  • Complete insight into global cash and payments
  • Trends, forward-looking information and KPIs as it relates to peer group
  • Understanding and identifying predictable patterns in transaction behaviors
  • Providing information that treasury can use with CFO / board-level discussion

Session Description

Treasury teams around the globe are looking for ways to automate their processes to allow for more time to be spent on strategic tasks. While some organizations explore Treasury Management Systems (TMS) to fulfill a specific need, such as cash management, other organizations look to purchase a more robust solution to fulfill all their treasury needs and then some. A more comprehensive TMS would involve functionality such as: cash management, accounting, banking, payments, debt and investments, forecasting, etc.

In this session, we will discuss what a Treasury Management System can best offer to treasury teams to assist them with streamlining their processes and managing their liquidity. Session attendees will learn more about how their TMS can collaborate with departments outside of treasury to not only send payments, but integrate with a back office system, and improve controls all through a centralized TMS platform. Real world examples will be given to highlight what a robust treasury system may look like and how to match your organizations needs with the solutions provided by the TMS vendor.
