Analysis and reporting functions have been gaining in importance for treasury management. Against this background, BELLIN and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) presented a new, standalone reporting portal at the 25th Finance Symposium in Mannheim, Germany: Treasury Analytics. The product of this collaboration offers all aspects of reporting in real time. It integrates and processes both default data from tm5 and additional information from external sources (e.g. SAP).
"We are not new to reporting. For years, our treasury management system has included parameterizable evaluation features allowing users to make accurate statements at a mouse click," says Martin Bellin, founder and Managing Director of BELLIN GmbH in Ettenheim. "However, we are seeing a trend towards individual reporting, especially for the top management of multinational corporations."
"We have already successfully supported many companies in optimizing their planning, analysis and reporting capabilities," explains Thomas Schräder, Partner at PwC Corporate Treasury Solutions in Düsseldorf, Germany. "We are convinced that these treasury functions will both gain in importance and individuality. Combining our expertise with BELLIN creates clear added value for our customers," Schräder states. "In this case: one plus one equals three," adds Bellin.
The result of this cooperation is Treasury Analytics, a fully integrated business intelligence solution. Owing to its connection to tm5, the web-based application features rapid implementation and guarantees long-term interoperability. From a central dashboard, users have access to three main categories: Liquidity & Cash Management, Asset & Liability Management, and Risk Management. This dashboard provides the most important figures in a set of standard reports, either as charts or graphs. Each category contains its own specialized dashboard. In Liquidity & Cash Management, for example, users can display short-term liquidity forecasts, transaction overviews and liquidity planning data. Scope and contents of each category and every report can be individually configured.
Treasury Analytics based on tm5 was first presented at the 25th Finance Symposium in Mannheim. After a joint workshop on System Day, numerous live demonstrations were held at the BELLIN stand. In the next few months, the cooperation partners will present this new reporting portal to selected customers.
