Will treasury operations ever be centralized?

Submitted by Niclas Osmund, republished from the Benche, a financial community for corporate treasurers. 

 A majority of treasury managers and professionals wish for more centralisation of a number of activities. For example payments, collections, liquidity structures and organisation set-ups. But, it doesn't seem to happen.

This is one of the conclusions we can draw from a survey that SEB together with GTNews has conducted every year since 2006. In the areas mentioned they state having a de-centralised set-up but have a strong wish to centralise. This is consistent and doesn't seem to change over the years.

While there has been a lot of talk about end-to-end financial supply chain solutions, few systems really live up to the hype. Some companies have chosen to cobble together a number of systems, and some banks are partnering with third party providers to provide a complete end-to-end solution for receivables and payables management, payments and financing.

These banks are looking to technology partners to provide the electronification of payables and receivables documentation and information flow, and then the bank provides the payments and settlement piece, plus access to financing for both supply chain finance  programs and trade finance  needs.

Who wins the prize for slow payment of bills? Big companies or small fry?

These days, the answer is the former. According to data from credit bureau Experian, large firms are the ones that are more likely to be severely delinquent in paying their bills over the next year. That includes companies with more than 1,000 employees paying their suppliers more than 90 days late.
