Making the Move from Paper to Electronic Payments
Companies have much to gain by making the move from paper to electronic payments, whether it's by using the ACH network, initiating wire payments or implementing a commercial card program. Whatever the channel, before embarking on an electronic migration project, companies should take the time to understand all of the potential benefits, set realistic goals, and identify the possible–but often avoidable–obstacles. Engaging a third party provider early in the process can help with the more challenging aspects of the exercise.Download PDF (1 MB) More

The Key to Unlocking Asia

Make Your Technology – Along With Your Payments Bank – Work for You
Used effectively, technology can help a company to understand and minimize potential risks, such as the impact of currency risks on the business, while protecting supply chains. It can also be used to generate detailed payments information at critical junctures early in the process. However, technology is costly and takes time to implement; therefore companies should educate themselves on the choices available and understand the imperative of strong coordination between their payments bank and technology provider.Download PDF (474.7 KB) More
Building Treasury's Influence
Treasury processes touch many functions across an organization — but all too often, leaders in other departments may have a limited understanding of how treasury can help them further their goals and inform their strategic decisions. By working to develop business relationships with their peers across the company, treasurers can enhance their profile, improve their understanding of treasury's role across the organization, increase their involvement in company-wide projects — and gain a seat at the decision-makers' table.Download PDF (382.5 KB) More
The Liquidity Risk Toolbox
Liquidity risk is now considered the ‘new norm' in day-to-day treasury management and remains a top concern for global corporations.

Seat at the table
Becoming more strategic and valued within the organization — and gaining a seat at the table — is a key priority for treasurers. One way for treasury to achieve this is to expand its purview while enhancing performance around its own core functions. Taking a holistic approach to working capital management, and optimizing the processes that drive cash flow — in partnership with your Shared Services Center (SSC) — can be a winning strategy for achieving this goal.Download PDF (3 MB) More
Managing Treasury Globally: Breaking the Mold
When is a global company not a global company? When it seeks to impose its existing treasury structure, processes and cultural practices on its international operations without taking regional differences into account. Replicating a model that works well domestically might seem like a logical approach — but by doing so, companies may inadvertently introduce inefficiency and complexity while missing the opportunity to take advantage of best practice in local markets.Download PDF (1 MB) More
