Leading regional corporations might typically spend up to about 253 man-hours per week* in manual intervention, entering data and rectifying their cash flow reports. It is observed that organisations are often subjected to off-contract, off-price maverick buying that could lead to significant wastage and high expenditure through procurement processes. (*1 The 2014 Visa Cash Flow Visibility Index research was done in August-September with CFOs / Treasurers of 811 leading corporations in ten countries/regions to better understand challenges that organisations may face with managing cash flow and ensuring visibility and predictability. The research was done by East & Partners, an independent specialist business banking market research and analysis firm. Regional data cover findings of Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore.)
