Many of you are in the midst of filing your first quarter ASC 842 adoption footnote disclosures. If you used brute force and/or a limited-scope point solution, how did that go? If you used a non-integrated solution, how did the reconciliations go between asset accounting and payments? Excel spreadsheets are not a realistic long term solution. Feel like you’re stuck in a dead-end now? You don’t have to be!
Companies operating in today’s diverse global environments face unprecedented challenges with regard to managing capital assets, especially cash accounts that are distributed throughout multiple operating entities in different countries. These challenges are exacerbated within companies that have grown via merger and acquisition (M&A) strategies, which often results in trying to manage cash accounts across a variety of legacy financial systems.
CFOs and treasury departments need to optimize their companies’ cash agility amidst volatile foreign currency exchange (FX) environments while also complying with constantly changing regulatory environments and escalating global competitive pressures.
At the same time, many companies are realizing that leveraging new treasury-focused technologies and best practices in cash management can provide valuable benefits in terms of improving operating results, maximizing asset utilization and enhancing their ability to quickly respond to new opportunities.
Instituting strong enterprise-wide cash management is also saving valuable time and resources, thereby enabling finance staff to better contribute to high-value activities such as analysis, planning and decision support.
In the session we've shared insights on key trends and challenges driving Treasurers and finance organizations to look to and new Finance Innovation Platform. You will hear about cash and cash management, banking and risk management challenges and how SAP helps solve them.
We have shared insights from a recent banking consolidation project and provided recommendations on how you can save time and money and free up resources to provide analysis and insight by leveraging Machine Learning apps. We have also covered crucial impacts and interactions of key compliance standards such as IFRS 16 and IFRS 9 on the treasury community.
