Shared Service Centres - the next generation

.... Why, you might ask, is an article on shared service centres (which to avoid repetitive strain injury, I will refer to as SSCs) appearing in a treasury publication? Well, in fact, that’s really my point. Treasurers are paying too little attention to their company’s SSCs and ignoring the fact that there are often shared objectives and advantages to working together. Furthermore, centralised treasury departments are themselves examples of shared services and by leveraging the technology which can be obtained quite easily , there are increasingly opportunities to increase the breadth of services which treasury offers to the wider business.
