Treasury enters a new digital era
Over the last decade, corporate treasurers worldwide have faced numerous new challenges which have been exacerbated by the pandemic and the ongoing movement toward working from home.
Many treasurers are now facing increased pressure for real-time or near-realtime global cash reporting as well as demands for improved cash forecasting and better risk management. At the same time, they have needed to ensure the continuity and security of all their regular treasury activities, particularly payments, at a time of increased homeworking, and rising cybercrime and fraud. This has led to a heightened focus on how treasurers can capitalise on the latest treasury management technology available to them.
ION Treasury conducted a survey of 114 corporate treasurers from across the world, asking them about their plans to migrate to new systems, and what functionality they would expect from a modern-day treasury management system (TMS). Global Treasurer summarized the results in a report that also includes commentary from industry leaders.
