The results highlight significant opportunities for both Corporates and Banks across the Asia Pacific region. For Corporates there are benefits to be gained from improving visibility of Cash across their multi-bank relationships and having access to flexible tools and processes which allow them to maximise the value of cash in their business. For innovative Banks in the region there’s a fantastic opportunity to steal a lead and offer a next generation of multi-bank, cash management services to their corporate clients.
- Only 35% of corporates surveyed had access to a real-time view of their transactions and cash.
