History has a strange way of repeating itself; One minute, seas are calm. Then without any warning, financial turbulence rattles businesses to the core. We’ve all witnessed the effects of a pandemic, leaving no business untouched and scrambling for a solution to their liquidity problems. Many businesses suddenly scrambled to right their operations by attempting to change their strategy midstream in order to navigate this uncertain time.
Treasuries that strengthened their operations before the pandemic by digitally transforming their operations were able to analyze, report on, and forecast cash faster and more accurately than their competitors. These organizations were able to identify potential opportunities and threats quicker, and utilize them to grow during the pandemic or sustain a larger financial hit due to lowering their cost of capital. By digitally transforming your treasury with an automated cash management platform, you can better identify and respond to major market shifts with real-time cash visibility.
How Legacy Technology Muddies Your View Amidst a Financial Crisis
Many treasury capabilities are limited to this day due to the overreliance on legacy technology within the financial space. While treasury management systems promise to automate the consolidation and normalization of bank data, manual intervention is often required due to low straight through processing rates. Days, and sometimes weeks, are often spent getting hold of bank data and consolidating it into a manual report. A manual report that only provides insights into your cash position at a specific time.
The pandemic demanded many businesses, especially those in brick and mortar locations, to overhaul their operations in a matter of weeks. The fact of the matter is that organizations who do not have a real-time view of their cash flow and position may not be able to adapt their cash management strategy quick enough to respond to drastic, unexpected changes in their cash flow.
Fortunately, incredible technological advances have occurred in the last few years that have empowered treasurers to achieve real-time cash visibility by establishing a single source of truth with an automated cash management platform. Trovata, our cash management platform, has empowered many treasuries to perform rapid, strategic decision making through a comprehensive suite of automated cash reporting, analysis and forecasting capabilities.
