How Can Fintechs Make the Difference?

It is a fact that treasury has become less diverse and more accountable for the company's overall results. Complexity comes from a wider group responsibility on e.g., working capital management through taking ownership of DSO and DPO KPIs.
As ever, TMS technology providers wish to attract clients easily but make leaving a more challenging task for the client, and therefore securing revenues for the future.

The rise of hybrid banking: combining physical with digital

September 21, 2021 | 3:00PM | EST

As consumers increasingly engage with their bank remotely, and circumstances such as the pandemic, as well as new digitally-focused strategies continue to play out, there are ongoing questions and serious challenges for banks in defining new models and transitioning to digital offerings. There will always be different customer preferences and needs for banks to meet. Added to this the variation in complexity of banking activities, and suddenly banks need a considered and highly nuanced approach at the ready. Many customers will use self-serve digital channels most of the time and as much as they can; others turn first to channels where they can get human help. The latter is still essential for certain transactions, interactions, or even as part of some activities. Most banks are transforming to a hybrid model but the greatest challenge remains how to replicate the human interaction when it comes to, for example, the explanation and understanding of contractual documents and serious financial decisions and products, as well as the need to adequately verify remote consumers before they gain access to high-value agreements and advisory services. Banks and FIs that take advantage of the convenience of digital banking while leveraging the benefits of in-person experiences that digital self-service channels cannot provide, will succeed. With the new hybrid banking model, the key is to find the right balance between human-mediated and digital experiences.

Future-proofing cross-border payments in a rapidly evolving world

September 23, 2021 | 3:00PM | EST

Financial institutions face an increasingly intense need to be connected to the fabric of payments infrastructure. Yet, with a seemingly endless number of cross-border solutions available, selecting the correct technology partner to suit a bank’s specific needs and framework can be akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Large infrastructure programs which are operating in various stages around the globe (such as the Nordics’ P27) boast numerous features which are attractive to forward-looking financial institutions. With access to a wide ecosystem these programs have the ability to connect and transact with thousands of parties across borders, while the rapid movement of financial messaging data works to build resilience and security through standardisation and common protocols. Rich data messaging is also seen as a fertile ground for financial institutions to deliver value-added services that more effectively serve the needs of their current and target user-base. Future-proofing cross-border strategy is also increasingly essential for banks which recognise the impact that the emergence of central bank digital currencies or stablecoins may bear on their cross-border operations.

Accounts Payable Best Practices for Financial Professionals

December 08, 2021 | 2:00 AM | EST

Fraud, technology and regulatory changes all impact the accounts payable profession and not always in a good way. They require analysis and change. In the last few years, these issues have been impacting the function at a speed that’s hard to believe. They’ve also increase the visibility most organizations have into their accounts payable function. This is a good thing for without proper attention and focus, the organization could end up with an accounts payable process that is far less efficient than it should be. Unfortunately, what worked yesterday may not work today. Best practices for the accounts payable function are critical for those organizations concerned about their bottom line. Poor practices result in excess cost, duplicate payments, increased processing expenses, potential fraud, and frayed vendor relationships.
