Leveraging Innovative Delivery Channels Across Financial Value Networks
by Jesper Ahrgren, Global Head, Channel Management, and Robert Pehrson, Global Head, Liquidity Products, SEB Merchant Banking
The days when banks could serve their customers simply by providing finance or processing payments are long gone. Today, corporate treasurers and finance managers expect sophisticated cash and liquidity management solutions, intuitive technology that can be integrated with in-house systems and high quality information to facilitate process automation, such as account posting and reconciliation. In this way, a virtuous cycle is created: as banks capture and transmit more sophisticated information, they are in a position to deliver a wider range of services across the financial supply chain, facilitate greater automation and move further up the financial knowledge pyramid (figure 1).
