According to the latest gtnews Payments Survey, there are still a significant number of corporates that have yet to begin a migration programme for the single euro payments area (SEPA) ahead of the 1 February 2014 migration deadline, with 37% of the 284 corporate treasury readers questioned in October and November of last year, admitting that they do not yet have SEPA services in place. Other findings from the just released '2013 gtnews Payments Survey' include the fact that 93% now use electronic e-payments, against 59% for cheques, and only 7% for the much-hyped mobile payments.
The 2012 gtnews Treasury Management Systems (TMS) Survey showed changes in key areas of TMS implementation and use among corporate treasurers, as well as significant global variation. In addition, the survey speaks to the drivers behind the evolution of traditional TMS solutions into all-in-one treasury and risk management (TRM) solutions. gtnews spoke to Ryan Heaslip, senior solutions consultant at the sponsors Reval, to interpret the survey’s most significant findings.
