Tools for Improving Cash Forecasting – Automation, Treasury Workstations, and AI

Join the NWAFP for this free webinar.

Cash forecasting has been a key function in finance and treasury for quite some time now, but it’s still a “buzzy” topic. It’s often the topic at sessions like these at treasury and finance events, and practitioners are always interested in learning about new tools and innovations in cash forecasting technology. Why is it that people are so interested in this function? Is it because of its importance to the business, difficulty to nail, or something else?

She has helped lead a variety of financial systems overhauls and overseen the introduction of numerous payment processes.
