The effectiveness of its finance policy is highlighted less frequently, as if it played only a minor role in the company's success. In fact, the situation is quite different. Financial departments are constantly seeking tools and solutions to help them optimize their cash management, allowing them to become more efficient in an increasingly competitive environment.
