“This study provides an excellent insight for any businesses looking to reap the benefits of cloud-based treasury management technology to increase organizational flexibility, cash management process scalability, and B2B payment security,” said Jukka Sallinen, Chief Executive Officer of Nomentia. “We wanted to understand what the current state of digitalization across treasury and cash management is and what are the challenges decision-makers are looking to overcome. We are thrilled to share the study with businesses to help them identify how they can take their cash management to the next level.”
Forrester’s study indicates that the current tools hinder firms’ priorities with cash flow management and the lack of visibility into cash flow has high costs. Thus, businesses are ready to invest in solutions that improve their cash flow capabilities:
- Over 80% of business leaders are prioritizing increasing cash management and payment efficiency and maximizing cash flow liquidity.
- 70% of decision-makers said that cash flow transparency, flexible reporting, and data collection are challenging.
- 66% percent of enterprise decision-makers reported their firms have invested or are expanding investment in financial data analytics.
The study also demonstrates that business leaders at large multinational enterprises have experienced that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the importance of cash liquidity, transparency, and certainty. As a result, three-quarters of the decision-makers plan to improve cash management capabilities, they deeply recognize the urgency and importance to digitalize and enhance their processes. Businesses that want to strengthen their resiliency will emphasize the importance of cash excellence to improve decision-making and successfully navigate the changes in customer behaviors, work, and technology accelerated by the pandemic.
