Pricing Analysis

Learn More...
Strategic Treasurer works with banks to determine the pricing models they should offer to their corporate clients. Banks want to offer competitive pricing to their clients while still maintaining a healthy margin so they can continue to develop and provide leading solutions. Understanding corporate expectations can bring bank pricing ranges in line with competitive flow.

Banks invest heavily in product development, security and controls, and relationship management in order to provide the best experiences for their customers. In a budget focused market, however, competitive pricing remains a key corporate driver in bank selection, so banks must maintain vigilance around their pricing models to keep their edge.

Bank Staff Training

Learn More...

You hire great people who are great at sales. Most, however, have gaps in their knowledge about cash management and treasury, restricting their success. Our training courses are designed to be effective, engaging, and targeted. Your staff will understand and apply their training, and you’ll see the results in their client interactions.

Are your sales and relationship management staff the most trusted advisors of your top clients? You’d love to know that when your clients reach an impasse or need help, the first call is to your team, every time. How can you hope to reach that level of trust with a client when most of your team is only focused on the bank’s products and solutions?

Your sales officers must hire representatives who need a thorough understanding of what really drives your corporate and commercial treasury clients. Your key clients and prospects are very busy. Your bank probably extends them credit, so your sales team can usually get an audience out of their sense of obligation. This only provides a very limited window, and making that time count is top priority—moving the meeting from ‘obligation’ to engagement. Through excellent and unique training, you can empower your sales team with techniques to learn your treasury clients’ goals and identify what stands in their way. They will present meaningful solutions to clients, or at least have an educated conversation—the first step down a path to a solution and a deeper relationship.

A meaningful sales process will move you from the banker who pops in every few months to a trusted advisor. Strategic Treasurer’s senior consultants provide a unique, two-track training system to help you develop this process. As former practitioners, bankers, and consultants, they offer unique insights that only a 360º perspective can afford. How are you going to reach your aggressive new goals each year?

Time-to-Revenue

Learn More...

Sometimes your team makes a sale, but it seems like the implementation never starts, and therefore the expected revenue never materializes. Strategic Treasurer can work on your client’s behalf to get a stagnant process moving.

Your client onboarding group is ready to help and does help in any and every way they can. However, the client has other obligations, numerous activities, and ample distractions. Dates keep slipping and goals are not met although reasons are given. Too much time is spent chasing, chasing, and chasing…

In other instances, the implementation process may begin, but the services are under-implemented, left at only 50–75% of the expected level. The client declares a project to be complete when it is only partially implemented. The client is exhausted and has three other fires and two other projects that need work as well. This delays the project and lowers their satisfaction level.

As a result of all these delays, your team experiences loss across many spectrums—less revenue than was expected comes in; revenue is also lost as dates continue to slip and resources are required to pour more of their time into the project. All this adds up to an overall loss of profit for the bank.

Our team of experienced onboarders and implementers can help. We can meet with your client and help to establish a reasonable plan, distributing the work that needs to be accomplished on the client side between their team and ours. Oftentimes, with a little bit of background information, our team can complete many tasks and get things moving rapidly. You’ll quickly find your time to revenue decreased when partnering with our team.

Webinar: Treasury & Receivables: Value of a Comprehensive View | June 4

Webinar: Treasury & Receivables: Value of a Comprehensive View | June 4

Acting in silos often comes easily to treasury, AR, and other areas, but the silo mindset is restrictive and limited. A comprehensive view, one that looks at the full process and all participants, offers far greater value for the organization and its partners. This view not only includes an end-to-end look within the company, but also includes external counterparties. “Optimizing part of the process suboptimizes the whole,” as the famous quote says, and optimizing the entire process requires an end-to-end to end-to-end look. This session explores how to:
• Improve overall treasury performance (liquidity, visibility, scalability)
• Strengthen AR (automation, reporting, defect reduction)
• Identify the parties that need to be part of the decision discussions
• Use third parties to secure trusted advice and understand leading practices
