    The third and last session in our 3 part series focused on how to use a Treasury Management System (TMS) to transform the treasury function to better meet the challenges of market volatility, soaring interest rates, and rapid company expansion.

    Implementing a new TMS comes with many opportunities, but also challenges. Creating a feasible and realistic implementation plan can help mitigate the future pitfalls of delayed timelines, scope creep, insufficient stakeholder commitment and an exhausted treasury team. We covered how to implement a TMS system from A to Z with all different phases from scoping & build phases through testing, cutover & go-live while ensuring you will remain within budget and timing.

    Thanks to our valued Patron PwC for hosting the event.
