Automating your cash management saves you countless hours of data processing, so you can focus on making strategic decisions.

You know the drill well. Open your many bank portals, download your statements, upload them all to your spreadsheet, consolidate and normalize the data utilizing macros, create your necessary financial reports, rinse and repeat. This process of manually collating cash and transaction data takes way too many hours that could be spent on strategic objectives that drive value for your business. Luckily, there’s a better way to manage your cash. 

Direct-To-Bank APIs have revolutionized sourcing bank data by establishing a real-time, big-data pipeline between automated cash management platforms and your many bank partners. You’re empowered with up-to-the-hour transactions and cash balance details in one secure cash management platform. For the first time ever, treasurers, like yourself,  can now leverage high-quality, real-time cash insights on-demand.
