How to Find the Right Treasury Management System for Your Needs
The treasury management system (TMS) market is highly competitive: we shed light on the darkness.
There is strong competition in the Treasury Management System (TMS) market: the various systems offer different functionalities that differ significantly in implementation complexity at a cost that is hard to compare without deep knowledge of the variety of TMS systems available. Each TMS Provider claims to have the right TMS system which offers the right functional scope, is easy and quick to implement and comes at a low cost. However, there is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the right TMS.
As a consulting company we cater for different types of clients from diversified industries and sectors. Our clients regularly requestoverviews of the TMS market and TMS providers as well as TMS selection support.
We believe that the right TMS solution helps Treasuries fulfil the tasks which were set out to be achieved. This could range from setting up a truly digital real-time Treasury with straight-through-processing (STP), automated interfaces and automated dashboard to fulfilling a singular task e.g. payments execution or offering a simple and easy to use repository for Treasury data and transactions.
There is not one TMS system that fits all clients. This is why we have developed a standardized market analysis and system overview to support our clients in identifying and selecting the right TMS and/or other IT solutions fulfilling their needs.
