GTreasury is launching an Innovation Lab, expanding on its twice-annual hackathons to explore future treasury technology. Each member of GTreasury’s technology team will have a dedicated cycle within the lab,
Early wins for the new approach are likely to focus on applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, with product ideas around BI reporting, risk analysis modules, and a module offering more automated and accurate reconciliation between forecasted and actual treasury payments.
Developers at the lab will turn initial ideas into working proof of concepts. Lab members will vote to select the solutions with the most potential, after which ideas are presented to internal stakeholders and customer representatives. Validated solutions will then move to a production development team to be fully built and integrated into the GTreasury platform.
Ciarán O'Neill, Director – Innovation Lab, GTreasury, said the launch would, 'Accelerate our pursuit of the innovations that it takes to develop and deliver powerful and compelling technological advances to our customers.'

Oracle has launched a cash forecasting module for its NetSuite ERP. Oracle says Cash 360 offers customers a real-time view of their cash position and the ability to generate near-term forecasts.
Cash 360 also offers a configurable dashboard that can include links to key cash management activities such as current cash balance, accounts payable and accounts receivable balances, cash flow trends, and a rolling six-month cash flow forecast.
“Insufficient cash flow is the main reason new businesses fail in the first five years, but despite it being such a critical area, many businesses struggle with cash management due to poor visibility and an inability to accurately forecast,” said Gary Wiessinger, SVP of product management, Oracle NetSuite. “NetSuite Cash 360 turns a complex process into a simple one by giving customers everything they need to effectively manage cash flow to help ensure they have the cash reserves to maintain day-to-day operations, pay employees and suppliers, fund sales and marketing efforts, service debt, acquire capital equipment, and make other long-term investments.”
