infiniance is delighted to be well into its first implementation of Kyriba at a European-based company. The project – expected to go-live in Q2 next year at the financial services firm – includes setting up and integrating cash management reporting from over 20 banks, as well as payment interfaces to 7 banks based on Kyriba’s seamless connection with SWIFT. The project will also establish a direct API-based interface to the company’s ERP system for cash flows and accounting entries.
Last week Sushma Gupta completed the Kyriba COE Payments intensive training and excruciating exam with flying colours.
Periodic closing of the books and timely financial reporting are not new requirements. But with the accelerating pace of business, the finance department has to deliver faster, reliable data, and with full transparency and compliant with regulatory requirements!CFO, anonymous
Which areas of your Enterprise System will potentially be impacted by Brexit?
There are many uncertainties about the nature of Brexit until the negotiations are complete, and the real effect on businesses may not be seen until implementation begins. As an SAP Finance Expert, we can see that many business processes will be affected by Brexit, such as operational data, business planning, payment, cash management, interest rates, invoicing and legal reporting. Heavy impacts on the configuration of ERP systems is to be anticipated. SAP released 33 notes about Brexit and all of these SAP notes discuss configuration changes that could be relevant to you, if your business operates in the UK and/or in the European Union.

“The pace of change has never been this fast, yet it will never be this slow again.” 1)
Make the right choice the first time with the fixed-cost TMS Selection Workshop & RFP delivered by infiniance.
The market for treasury management systems is ever-changing. Vendors are consolidating, others are exiting, some are radically changing their platform, new disruptors are entering the market. And last but not least, the underlying technology is changing – fast.
This event is the first in a series of breakfast seminars which will be co-hosted by SAP and infiniance. The purpose is to bring SAP Treasury customers – current and potential – up-to-date on the latest improvements on S/4HANA and bridging the gaps to ECC (“old” SAP) so you can determine which projects to implement now, and which ones can wait until you are on the new S/4HANA platform.
Infiniance assisted the Client with a succesful implementation of SAP Treasury & Risk Management on SAP S/4HANA (1709).
As part of the project, infiniance have managed the initial proof-of-concept, blueprint designs, build and configuration, go-live, and hyper-care phases for SAP TRM, and the key deliverables were well-received by the business.
The deliverables included end-to-end transaction management for FX, deposits, loans, trade finance (guarantees and letters of credit), counterparty credit risk management, market data from Refinitiv DataScope (frm. Thomson Reuters), as well as trade confirmations and matching through SWIFT (MT300 and MT320 messages).
The project is now in post-go-live support.
Please contact us today, to hear more about the project and how we can assist you in your SAP Treasury projects!

Treasury’s rolle har siden finanskrisen ændret karakter og er i de fleste virksomheder blevet en central del af vigtige beslutninger på det strategiske område. Treasury bliver involveret i f.eks. opkøb og frasalg, working capital, supply chain financing, etablering af shared service centres og meget mere. Samtidig er cash forecasting en stadig vigtigere del af treasury’s ansvar som beslutningsgrundlag for det strategiske arbejde. Derfor invitererer infiniance nu til vores næste kundeseminar i rækken, hvor vi vil komme rundt om netop disse emner.
infiniance will be providing hands-on services to the company, which is in the process of being spun-off from their parent company. This means a whole new treasury setup is being established with a new organisation, new processes, new bank setup as well as a selection and implementation of a new treasury management system. The purpose is to make the organisation ready as a stand-alone operation in preparation of the split.
This task is part of our Treasury-as-a-Service offering, where we can deliver the knowledge, experience, and resources to corporate treasuries of all sizes, for shorter or longer periods of time. Contact us today to learn more.
infiniance styrker sin position indenfor strategisk treasury rådgivning og indgår fra dags dato en samarbejdsaftale med Simon H. Hoffmann fra Treasurer.dk. Parterne vil således kunne trække på hinandens kompetencer og ressourcer på relevante kundeopgaver indenfor corporate treasury.
Flere treasury afdelinger oplever et stigende arbejdspres, og skal jonglere de daglige opgaver samtidig med der skal tænkes strategisk, gennemføres nye initiativer, projekter, og leveres kritisk rapportering til ledelsen. Der kan være store operationelle risici forbundet med et underbemandet treasury. Det kan være svært at danne sig det nødvendige overblik over opgaverne, og ofte foranlediger man sig på få kritiske nøgle-ressourcer.
Infiniance kan tilbyde kvalificerede interim treasury ressourcer – vi kalder det ”Treasury-as-a-Service”.
Sæt allerede nu kryds i kalenderen d. 15. september 2017, hvor infiniance afholder formiddags-seminar på Børsen i København. Så hold øje her og kontakt os hvis du vil have invitationen sendt direkte!

The market for treasury management systems is in revolt! New vendors are disrupting the market, incumbents consolidate, and total cost of ownership is coming down. In this dynamic market it can be difficult to navigate the different options. Selecting and implementing a new treasury management solution is often a “once-in-a-career” project and should not be taken lightly.
To share our experiences and best-practise approach, infiniance invites you to attend this free-of-charge Treasury System Selection webinar on Wednesday, April 19th from 10:00 to 11:00 CET.
Using the Treasury Snap-Check model – which has been developed by infiniance – we conduct a high-level end-to-end analysis of the Treasury department. The deliverables from the analysis include a number of concrete recommendations, a weighted cost-benefit implementation plan, and a scoring of the treasury performance against best-practise. The model is applicable to organisations of all sizes, and the best-practise target is accommodated to your peer group.
infiniance will be providing hands-on interim treasury assistance to the company, which has completed a significant acquisition. The objective is to prepare for integration of all treasury related activities in relation to acquisition, including bank accounts, cash pools, risk management processes and advisory services.
