- Data analysis
- Identifying trends and patterns
- Receivables management
- Isolation Forest to compare all different variables in the data source to new payments
Value for Finance & Treasury: Machine Learning Use Cases
Solutions based on new technologies such as AI allow companies to accelerate their growth. They offer companies optimised cash management. With AI, companies can optimise payment processes, which are still manual in many companies.
Cash management AI can provide clear visual cash forecasting dashboards that can be customised to the needs of businesses.
This allows treasury to determine how much of its budget it can allocate towards certain expenditures over that time period.
What are the actions?
Factors such as economic difficulties and rising global inflation can make it difficult to justify spending on new technologies. As a result, businesses can face significant challenges if they do not adapt to technological advances.
AI tools help reduce errors in historical data. They are also decision support tools for treasury departments.
CFOs need to make strategic decisions to optimise financial management and data analysis. Cloud-based treasury solutions such as Kyriba solutions allow finance departments to access their data in real time.
