Course Description

Finance executives in medium to large businesses (businesses with less than $250M revenue) assert that managing cash is becoming more challenging to forecast. Globalization means more regulation with an increasing number of banks and bank portals, different currencies, and different rules for how to expatriate cash. As a result, finance departments must manage multiple banking relationships.

To execute in this environment, treasury functions will need to find ways to provide management with information on cash positions and cash forecasts faster and with more in-depth insight. Organizations now require improved visibility into their consolidated assets – foreign and domestic, across banks and investments. Bringing together disparate systems is the first step in obtaining a clearer financial picture and more accurate reporting.

This webinar will also feature the latest statistics from a new 2020 study of financial executives and benchmarks from industry peers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how to automate the acceleration of cash collection

  • Recognize how to improve the timeliness and reduce the expense and errors associated with the reconciliation of receipts and disbursements

  • Identify how to improve visibility and integration to make cash forecasting easier
