Banks and other technology solution providers should be seeking to capitalize on these critical financial process needs by providing capabilities that require fewer client company resources to launch and support.

Companies of all shapes and sizes should be continuously seeking to attain financial operations efficiency, minimize resources consumed by manual processes, and gain better control over the management of working capital through automation. The pandemic has proved to be a wake-up call for companies lagging in the execution of this vision. A new research report from Mercator Advisory Group, Improving Cash Cycle Management Is a Key to Corporate Stability reviews the current situation and trend forward for processes and solutions used across financial operations.

Overall global economic contraction was 3.5% in 2020. Although 2021 and 2022 GDP projections are a relatively strong 5.5% and 4.2% respectively, recovery strength will vary significantly by country, with less developed markets particularly vulnerable. The level of technology investment and automation initiatives increased during 2020, and represent a likely ongoing trend in 2021. This will be important as revenues will be generally harder to come by into 2022 as economies attempt to regain lost ground.

“Banks and other technology solution providers should be seeking to capitalize on these critical financial process needs by providing capabilities that require fewer client company resources to launch and support,” commented Steve Murphy, Director of the Commercial and Enterprise Advisory Service at Mercator Advisory Group, the author of this report. “This will help drive loyalty and provide stronger foundational client bases.”
