We launched a survey among bobsguide readers who are in the process of procuring a treasury management system, or have worked with vendors to implement one.
Here we share the findings from the survey, and explore the issues it has uncovered with the aim of helping you with the TMS procurement process, including how to select the right system for your organisation and what you should consider before making your decision.
From 25 May, 2018, any company that holds personal data on EU residents will be required to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
With less than a year to go, how can financial professionals ensure they do not fall foul of the regulation? How might banking treasury systems, or corporate management systems, help treasurers comply with GDPR?
We look at the different capabilities of the market’s many treasury systems, what they could do for organisations of different sizes, and what businesses need to consider before they invest in their own solution.
Investing a great deal of money into new technology, and implementing the system in a process that could take up to 18 months is a daunting prospect, made worse by the fact that it’s likely no one within the business would have undertaken such a project before.
Choosing a system that aligns with the needs of the business while streamlining everyday processes is just the first step of this journey. But how do you ensure you choose the right one?
After months of research and consultation with treasury technology experts, bobsguide has identified four main stages of treasury management system selection and implementation.
“You might have chosen the right system, but if it’s mis-implemented, or ill-implemented, then your user won’t be able to use it. They’ll go back to the spreadsheet.”
