Artificial Intelligence in Cash Flow Management
BusinessPlus CFO will be powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to generate insights for CFO to better make decisions that meet the needs of their enterprises. However, humans are frequently kept in the loop in cash flow management while leveraging AI-generated insights to make educated decisions.
Maximize Cash - Optimize return on cash and reduce borrowing costs by gaining deeper insights into your cash position and forecast.
Having strong cash flow can help an enterprise get better financing, find a customer, and pay for suppliers. Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are assisting CFO and business owners in making better underwriting judgments by including several indicators that more correctly analyze previously underrepresented operation risks and market opportunities in the financial management decision-making process.
To maximize cash , you need to improve the quality of your cash flow forecasts in order to better anticipate changes in banking positions. Furthermore, you need to provide a real-time view of changes in working capital requirements so that financial resources are properly allocated to support enterprise growth.
Reduce Financial Risk - Guarantee liquidity with AI-driven fraud controls and hedge financial risks, such as FX and interest volatility.
Companies shift money, make payments, deposit cheques, trade stocks, and much more through online accounts and smartphone apps each day, resulting in massive amounts of digital transactions. Apart from banks or financial institutions, companies must now increase their own protection and fraud monitoring measures to facilitate these digital transactions internally across the enterprises. Due to this, artificial intelligence is playing a crucial role in strengthening the security of digital banking and electronic payments.
In today’s heightened business and regulatory climate, organizations should minimize the risk of payment fraud with integrated risk mitigation, vendor verification and artificial intelligence. BusinessPlus CFO can detect suspicious activities with a central vendor database and streamline payment approval using validation status in order to prevent fraudulent payments.
Enhance Operational Performance - Drive efficiency with in-house bank functionalities and even digital financial assistant to service internal users.
BusinessPlus CFO comes with an AI-chatbot (“CFO Assistant”) which can offload certain financial tasks at Finance & Accounts Department such as answering payment and settlement status queries raised by departmental users even when it’s out of office hours.
BusinessPlus CFO Assistant, which employs natural language processing and artificial intelligence, can deliver bespoke financial management monitoring and reliable self-help employee assistance. BusinessPlus CFO can empower the department users in tracking their expenditure and checking real-time budget availability and approval status.
