Current business practices to reconcile accounts and provide a daily cash position to the executive management team are time-consuming of some of the organization’s brightest minds. Furthermore, the cash forecast is not inclusive of items that are not seen at the bank. This is a little bit like driving forward while looking in the rearview mirror. The cash management portion of the project intends to address:
Reduce manual efforts
Strengthen controls for auditing and compliance
Streamline financial operations for reconciliation
Reduce labor expense
