Eliminate Lockbox Fees & Payment Processing Tasks – Webinar 2/16/17

Webinars

 

Complimentary Webinar

Breaking the Bank: How Your A/R Team Could Eliminate Lockbox Fees and 90% Payment Processing Tasks
 Thursday, February 16, 2017 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM CST
REGISTER NOW
For all A/R teams, large volume of check payments create a direct cost impact with high bank lockbox fees and time lost to inefficient, manual exception handling and cash posting.

Cusotmers paying via ACH, add to the burden. ACH and other electronic payments require manual reconciliation because of non-standard or incomplete remittance data received via a multitude of sources including emails, email attachments and web portal, minimizing the speed and cost advantages of electronic payments.

Join, Elaine Nowak, Director, Product Management, HighRadius, as she walks you through how leading credit and A/R teams from Danone, adidas, Starbucks are moving from a completely manual, supervised process to automating more than 90% manual tasks and eliminating bank lockbox fee.

In this webinar, Elaine will help you understand how to:

  • Diagnose the cash application process to identify low-value tasks suitable for automation
  • Benefit from faster ACH paying customers and remove issues with remittance information
  • Reduce A/R operation costs by eliminating bank lockbox data key-in fees
  • Optimize downstream A/R processes such as collections and deductions management by more speedy and complete cash application
  • Achieve zero-touch automation of payment processing and cash posting with NACHA’s Preferred Partner technology for cash application

Effectively Mitigating Payments & Cyber Security Risk Exposures – Webinar 2/9/17

Webinars

TreasuryJobs.com is thrilled to offer our first webinar of 2017 on Thursday, February 9th, Effectively Mitigating Payments & Cyber Security Risk Exposures: Your Career Depends on It , as part of our ongoing commitment to impact the career success of Treasury professionals.

 

The evolution of the Treasury function involves more ownership of the mitigation and management of financial & operational risk exposures which encompass payments and cyber risk exposures. Does your company have the right methods, technology and tools in place to minimize fraud and cyber security risk exposures?

 

I personally invite you to join us to discover how Treasury leaders can collaborate with IT, HR, sales, marketing and other company leaders to identify, monitor and manage these risk exposures, and devise a comprehensive data breach response plan to mitigate the cost of any data breach.

The specific learning objectives for the webinar are as follows
* Identify current and emerging payments and cyber risk exposures at your company
* Mitigate current and emerging payments and cyber risk exposures at your company
* Construct a data breach response plan to minimize the costs of a data breach or another event that impacts key technology resources.

Getting It Right: Balancing Profitability, Liquidity & Risk in 2017 – Webinar 1/12/17

Getting It Right:
Balancing Profitability, Liquidity and Risk in 2017

 

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7615487293737363715?source=Stone+Castle

Thursday, January 12, 2017
2:30-3:30PM

 

Cash forecasting will take on new meaning for treasury professionals in 2017.

The combination of allocating cash toward its “best use” together with rising rates, Basel III, Section 385 regulations and the potential for cash repatriation or a complete US tax reform from a new administration in the White House will put a premium on the Treasury’s ability to manage these many moving parts.

During this complimentary webinar, FENG, Fitch Ratings and StoneCastle Cash Management will introduce key issues every practitioner needs to consider to optimize their forecasting and liquidity management strategies in 2017.

 

Panelists
Brandon Semilof, Managing Director, StoneCastle Cash Management
Ian Rasmussen, Senior Director, Fitch Ratings
Bruce Lynn, Managing Partner, FENG

Topics for Discussion
– How much liquidity is “enough”?
– How much risk is “too much”?
– If you were over borrowed, under invested and over exposed, how would you know?

Without the right set of goals or ability to measure “success”, 2017 could prove to be a bumpy ride.

After all, what gets measured gets managed.
