Building the Business Case
You want technology. It is a no-brainer. But, you are competing for dollars and mindshare. Making a significant change in treasury includes bringing the organization along on multiple fronts simultaneously.

It addresses key considerations for showing an ROI and provides a multi-step plan for moving forward.
Technology Stack: Digital Backbone
This eBook, the second in its series, shifts our attention to the crucial place a TMS can occupy in a treasury department, serving as a part or whole of a digital backbone in the technology stack. This understanding will also prove helpful in addressing the material of the third and fourth eBooks, which will relate to TMS selection (3rd eBook) and implementation (4th eBook).
TMS Selection: Leading Practices
Since modern TMS typically last for well over a decade and affect the efficiency and effectiveness of treasury operations on a daily basis, the stakes in selecting the right solution and vendor are high. This eBook, the third in the TMS Toolkit series, covers the key principles necessary for a selection that will result in lasting success and walks the reader through each step of the selection process. Topics include finding a vendor who can partner with your firm long-term, product road maps, critical business requirements, and getting the most out of RFI, RFP and demonstration experiences.
Implementation: Pitfalls to Avoid
This eBook is the final installment in the Treasury Technology Toolkit Series. Your treasury team has come a long way on a journey to a new treasury and risk management system. They have successfully compiled and presented a business case, assessed their needs and parameters, identified the type of solution necessary, and narrowed it down to the right vendor.
This last hurdle, however, can be challenging, requiring clear-sighted planning and hard work to ensure on-time delivery, in-budget costs, and successful attainment of the planned scope of functionality. The best way to ensure success is to understand the most common pitfalls and plan strategies to avoid them.
