A treasury management system (TMS) won’t be effective if it isn’t implemented correctly. Learn how to do it the right way to avoid problems down the road.

It’s relatively easy for treasury departments to manage a few bank accounts, but once a company has multiple banking relationships in multiple currencies with multiple risk factors spread around the globe, the job becomes quite a bit more complicated. That’s why, more and more, organizations are implementing treasury management systems to help rein in the variety of complex treasury functions.

Why are treasury management systems important?

Treasury focuses on the biggest asset of a company: cash!
The need for a treasury system really comes from the fact that you have great complexity in functionality and an increasingly important role to play within the organization. Treasuries are able to automate core treasury operations like cash management, foreign exchange, risk management, currency positioning and compliance with specialty applications such as SunGard, Reval, Wall Street Systems, Kyriba or with modules offered by their current enterprise resource planning systems like SAP or Oracle.

The goal of this TMS is to have the ability to see the whole financial picture of a company in one place, but also to have a robust analytical capability. You have a large amount of data that needs an interface that allows you to understand it easily and to dig into it to get answers.

When a treasury department decides it can no longer successfully function by piecing together a complex array of spreadsheets and has done the hard work of choosing the right treasury management system vendor, then the critical task of a successful implementation can begin. We will assist you in writing your Request for Proposal (RFP) and to implement your system and the complementary interfaces.
