Using best practices within your cash management function to be as efficient and effective as possible should be a goal of every treasury department. As treasury teams know, this is just the starting point. The end goal is to have all the elements in place such as banking infrastructure, cash visibility and cash forecasting - which enables an organization to be ideally suited to make the best decisions regarding liquidity use.

In this webinar, we discussed:

  • Banking infrastructure and controls
  • Cash visibility and automation of bank connectivity
  • Cash forecasting through collaboration and formalized reporting
  • and more...
