Organizations and finance staff must improve consistently in order to stay competitive, and competitiveness almost always requiring leveraging technology. In this panel discussion, the conversation focuses on the most promising technologies that are in play now and are seeing increasing adoption in finance. How should organizations move forward with technology (staying current, learning, piloting, expanding), and how should a finance professional respond personally to the opportunity and risk of disruptive technology? Which technologies will eat another’s lunch? What is driving the focus on forecasting? What is actually current in data analytics?
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Treasury Coalition formed to assist treasury and finance professionals in examining the impact the industry. Through weekly, biweekly, monthly, and now bi-monthly surveys, data has been collected, analyzed, and distributed for the good of the industry. Specifically, the survey looked to gather concerns, response plans, and monitor economic preparations and impact changes throughout the pandemic life cycle. This webinar will review the results to date, dive into cross cuts of the data, and discuss what organizations can do as we recover.
This webinar covers the results and provides insights into the 2021 Treasury Fraud and Controls Survey. This survey’s purpose was to evaluate the current and projected impact of fraud on the finance and treasury environment. Practitioners were polled on their experiences with fraud and on the range of controls, safeguards, and security practices employed to protect their financial assets and information. The data was compiled and is used to educate the industry as to how the fraud landscape is evolving, and how practitioners can better protect themselves and their organizations against attacks.
The cash conversion cycle (CCC) and working capital management often come with a variety of pain points for treasury. In this webinar, we discuss several types of solutions that address these pain points, notably supply chain finance (SCF) solutions and those addressing various portions of the CCC. We will discuss the relevance of these solutions in business continuity planning and times of disruption and volatility, the various SCF models, the navigation of supplier participation issues, the problem of competing KPIs within the CCC, and the use of working capital councils to improve these areas and implement solutions.
Treasury departments require massive connectivity both to internal and external groups. Treasury aggregators can help. In this webinar, we discuss the pain points driving this technology, such as fraud, disparate and evolving payment formats, complexity, compliance, and staffing, along with the various way in which a treasury aggregator can address those pain points and support efficient and controlled operations. Additional topics will include the role of a treasury aggregator within the larger treasury technology landscape, factors affecting the future of aggregation, and leading practices for implementation.
Treasury management systems (TMS) are a vital part of many treasury departments’ technology stacks. In this webinar, we give a comprehensive overview of the current TMS space, showing the place of a TMS in addressing the pain points of modern treasury departments, in business continuity planning and work-from-home environments, and its uses in preparing for and managing disruption and volatility. It will cover the uses of emerging technology in TMS offerings and will discuss leading practices and proper mindsets for avoiding pitfalls in making a business case, selecting, and implementing treasury technology.
