The role of the corporate treasury has changed. The credit crisis has resulted in decreased availability of funding, and corporations need to leverage internal cash, minimizing external cash requirements at all times. With the current cost of funding being very high, corporations must have efficient internal funding methods, and global visibility of all available cash to achieve this efficiency. They need to control exposures with counterparties and have good connectivity to all their banks, trading platforms and accounting systems. To reduce their costs and manage risk, corporations need to leverage their use of technology more now than ever before.
