Day after day, large conglomerates have to manage a diverse set of businesses from different markets with diverse characteristics.
Whether for trading in natural resources, agricultural products or electronic components, proper cash management is critical to ensuring that goods get shipped and businesses get paid.
Unsurprisingly, cash management through real-time collaboration is a large part of a group’s treasury role in a huge corporate conglomerate.
