Bellin has launched a standalone treasury analytics reporting portal in partnership with PwC to try to meet the growing demand for analytical information and real-time reporting.
Treasury Analytics is a fully integrated business intelligence solution. Owing to its connection to tm5, the web-based application features rapid implementation and guarantees long-term interoperability. From a central dashboard, users have access to three main categories: liquidity and cash management; asset and liability management; and risk management.
The dashboard provides the most important figures in a set of standard reports, either as charts or graphs. Each category contains its own specialised dashboard. In liquidity and cash management, for example, users can display short-term liquidity forecasts, transaction overviews and liquidity planning data. The scope and contents of each category and every report can be individually configured.
The product, launched at the ‘25th Finance Symposium’ in Mannheim, Germany, offers reporting in real time, while integrating and processing both default data from tm5 and additional information from external sources such as SAP.
“We are not new to reporting. For years, our treasury management system [TMS] has included parameterisable evaluation features allowing users to make accurate statements at a mouse click,” said Martin Bellin, founder and managing director of Bellin. “However, we are seeing a trend towards individual reporting, especially for the top management of multinational corporations [MNCs].”
“We have already successfully supported many companies in optimising their planning, analysis and reporting capabilities,” added Thomas Schräder, partner at PwC Corporate Treasury Solutions in Düsseldorf, Germany. “We are convinced that these treasury functions will both gain in importance and individuality. Combining our expertise with Bellin creates clear added value for our customers.”
Bellin and PwC said that they plan to present the new reporting portal to selected customers over the next few months.
