The ‘anytime, anywhere, any device’ concept is familiar to us all, but it is only now that this is becoming a reality in treasury. In this month’s executive interview, Helen Sanders, Editor, is joined by Céline Seratinsky, Societe Generale’s Head of Cash Management Web banking and Security Solutions and Aurélien Viry, Societe Generale’s Global Head of Payments and Cash Management, together with Sunil Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer at KGK Diamonds.
Why has the use of mobile technology in treasury emerged as a priority?
Viry, Societe Generale
While mobile treasury and banking capabilities have existed for some time, they are now reaching a ‘tipping point’, with a level of sophistication and flexibility that meets the needs of corporate treasurers, and a recognition of the role that mobile access to key banking activities can play in securing processes and managing risks and liquidity. As treasurers become more willing to use mobile devices in their professional as well as personal lives, we may be seeing a shift in working practices that could consign the laptop to history.
