Format Transformation
With 50,000+ payments format scenarios Kyriba offers the most extensive format library in the industry, incl. ISO 20022 XML, SWIFT MT/MX, and various local formats, eliminating the need for clients to manage bank protocols and format transformation in house.

Payment Controls

Payment Acknowledgment
The Kyriba Payment Hub supports end-to-end payments tracking with one payment status reporting dashboard. Clients can also review and approve payments on-the-go with Kyriba Mobile App (iOS and Android).

Working Capital

As a bank-independent solution Kyriba provides clients the option to leverage leading technology and services to access working capital in the most efficient and flexible ways, enabling CFOs to generate free cash flow and improve financial results with a full spectrum of working capital solutions.

Control and ownership – Clients are the owners of their programs. Our model puts the partners in control.

Bank Relationship – Clients can select and reward multiple key relationship banks.

Risk – Eliminate single bank risk and diversify funding sources.

Kyriba is not a funder – Kyriba does not use its balance sheet, make credit risk process or policy based decisions on behalf of partners.

Payables Finance
Kyriba Payables Finance provides suppliers with a complete reverse factoring solution where suppliers can accelerate collection of their receivables due from their buyers, with full integration among the buyer, the supplier, and the financing partner.

Dynamic Discounting
Dynamic discounting programs are best suited for organizations that have excess liquidity, and are looking for an alternative to low-yield, short-term investments to earn risk-free returns on excess cash. The control of this program fully sits with the buyer and their suppliers; they can negotiate the financial benefits and Kyriba’s platform will support them to achieve it.

Hybrid Payables Finance and Dynamic Discounting
The Hybrid model brings the Payables Finance and Dynamic Discounting programs together, and allows the funding source to be switched between internal and external. Most businesses with sales seasonality have periods where cash is scarce or in abundance. Depending on the cash position of the buyer, the program structure can alternate between the buyer using their funds to early pay their suppliers’ invoices or the financial institution comes into play and funds them.

Receivables Finance
Kyriba Receivables Finance accelerates payment on the receivables to get cash into the business quickly, giving CFOs a new solution suite to optimize working capital and strengthen the balance sheet. Seamless integration across the entire platform means easier liquidity management and working capital stability.

Artificial Intelligence

Kyriba’s AI strategy includes fully supporting embedded AI models within the platform’s workflows and securely opening the platform via APIs to engage with GenAI tools such as ChatGPT.

Example Use Cases

Forecasting
Kyriba utilizes AI to forecast cash flows based on historical transactions, patterns, and seasonality. AI projections are compared against other forecast sources to assess forecast accuracy and the ideal role for AI in cash forecasting. In addition, AI is used to calculate excess cash balances at desired confidence intervals, minimizing idle cash and maximizing returns.

Payment Fraud
Kyriba’s fraud detection engine uses AI to detect payment anomalies and isolate suspicious payments, utilizing an adversarial model trained on the organization’s payment history. Implemented with other payment controls and scenario analysis, AI provides a powerful real-time detection mechanism against payment fraud.

Payment Formats
With Kyriba’s Open Formats Studio, users can enable ChatGPT to generate new or update existing payment format scripts, including testing and validating the new formats before incorporating them into their payment workflows for immediate integration to the bank, greatly decreasing the time and effort required for on-demand implementation and adjustment of payment formats.

Reporting
Kyriba’s Open Reports Studio enables users to securely query data directly in Microsoft Excel, enabling users to securely engage AI tools such as ChatGPT and Microsoft Copilot with their Kyriba data to integrate external insights, build new queries, and dynamically generate new reports.
