Bottomline today unveiled expanded corporate treasury capabilities as part of its integrated Payments and Cash Lifecycle Platform. The platform empowers financial managers to optimise cash, liquidity and working capital with a unified solution combining payables, receivables, and treasury management, delivering greater visibility and control throughout the end-to-end cash lifecycle.
The integrated solution enables seamless management of a corporate’s banking, payments and cash management activities, reducing the complexity and inefficiencies associated with multiple systems, separate processes and fragmented data. Bottomline’s Payments and Cash Lifecycle Platform includes tools to initiate and manage payments, automate payables and receivables, conduct sophisticated cash flow forecasting and scenario planning, optimise liquidity and investment returns, and manage borrowing needs and banking relationships.
The benefits of the single-platform solution include a unified view of data from multiple transaction systems, which is enhanced by advanced analytics and machine learning. CFOs and Treasurers gain the intelligence and insights they need to inform real-time decision making, along with greater visibility, security and control over mission-critical processes. As a result, financial leaders are better prepared to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex business, regulatory and risk management environment.
As part of today’s announcement of an enhanced Payments and Cash Lifecycle Platform, Bottomline also announced a business combination with TreasuryXpress, a leading provider of cloud-based treasury management solutions for corporations and banks around the world.
