NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Citi launches its TreasuryVision® Liquidity Manager, a key component of Citi’s TreasuryVision Analytics toolkit providing interactive balance visibility via the CitiDirect online banking platform. The solution is another innovative service, complementing Citi’s suite of global liquidity management solutions.
TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager’s analytic dashboard enables many views of cash positioning and risk reporting with summarized and detailed views of end-of-day (EOD) aggregate balances and analytic trending, grouped by header accounts in their Citi liquidity structure, including multi-currency notional pooling and global cash concentration accounts. With this tool, many aspects of cash positioning and risk reporting are enabled.
DENSO, a leading supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components for the world’s major car makers, is the first client to pilot the TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager solution.
“As businesses expand across multiple geographies, aggregating balances within a liquidity structure becomes increasingly important, particularly for the purpose of improving overall control of daily liquidity, optimizing global cash allocations and credit usage,” stated Cindy Gerhard, Managing Director and Head of Liquidity Management Solutions Product Management for Citi Treasury and Trade Solutions. “As the first client to pilot TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager, DENSO has been an important pioneer and partner in helping us refine this innovative solution.”
The TreasuryVision® Global Liquidity Portal as a whole improves the treasurer’s overall control over the organizations financial data and global cash allocation and credit usage by increasing visibility and centralizing control. Transparency is achieved through data aggregation, powerful analytics, and tools such as cash flow forecasting. Information is standardized in a single location for treasurers rather than remaining fragmented across banks and subsidiaries globally.
The TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager improves upon these capabilities by delivering an interactive analytic dashboard that provides day-to-day information. Furthermore, it is mobile enabled so the treasury function can be performed on the go.
Among TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager’s innovative features is an analytic dashboard including a Balance Summary view, which provides a summary table of a company’s liquidity structures and their aggregate cash balances. The client is further able to view a drill-down list of underlying accounts that feed the structures through the Account Details view. Balance-based alerting can be used to notify users when any of the accounts breaches it’s threshold balance.
The TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager also enables visual analysis through graphs and visualization tools. In order to facilitate graphical analysis, Trend Analysis Graph View provides an insightful graph showing individual structure balances or a grand total balance. Tree or Map View displays the accounts and their hierarchical relationship to each other and to Citi branches throughout the world.
“Prior to piloting Citi’s TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager, we faced a cumbersome manual process to obtain end-of-day balances from our notional pooling accounts,” explained Gyongyi Kis, an Assistant Manager in Treasury at DENSO Europe. “With TreasuryVision Liquidity Manager, now we can simply log in to view a report on all of our approximately 103 accounts across 21 structures and seven Citi branches. Using the solution’s Tree View functionality, we can easily see how our accounts are linked and check if bank fees are correct in terms of target balancing indices. During the pilot, we were extremely pleased with how Citi listened to our recommendations and then modified the solution to meet our needs.”
Planned enhancements include expanding the solution to include intraday updates to balances and stand-alone accounts, Citi Intraday Sweeps, expanded email alerts, and drill-down to SWIFT statements to bring critical information to clients, allowing them to achieve vital treasury objectives.
