Breaking down silos: How to optimise financial health across spend, payments, and liquidity

Cash is the lifeblood of any business, but it is hard to control what can’t be seen. The current economic unpredictability brought into stark context by a suddenly dispersed workforce, calls for improved visibility, efficiency, and control across the core working-capital functional teams of finance, procurement and treasury. 

Now is the time for finance to take a leadership role in guiding their businesses to optimise spend, payments and liquidity to ensure profitability, strategic value and growth.

  • What are the blind spots and process inefficiencies currently experienced by finance departments? Could a single source of truth and automated processes help?
  • How can finance leaders gain better insights into future cash demands to improve forecasting and unlock cash flow?
  • What are the best ways to reduce the risks of error and fraud?
