Position and Control Cash:

As you know operational cash flow activities generate a high volume of daily bank transactions. Accurate reconciliation of these activities is essential to guard against errors that can result in significant costs to your company.
Oracle’s Treasury solution automates your entire reconciliation process. This is accomplished by allowing your company to import bank statements and then reconcile these statements to transactions from Oracle’s E-Business Suite and your external systems. You can also identify and resolve exceptions, manage bank errors, and even monitor fraud by comparing bank reported activities to your actual system transactions. So with Oracle’s Treasury Solution you can automate these functions, saving your organization time.
You also have easy access to your global cash positions and you can integrate with your banks to obtain your monthly and intra-day bank statements as well as to generate and send payment instructions. We have several mechanisms in place to obtain bank statements and load them into the Treasury Solution. We support multiple formats such BAI2, Swift 940 and Edifact.
Oracle’s Treasury Solution automates and integrates all aspects of treasury operations, allowing you to capitalize on global e-business opportunities.

You can also enforce various security access levels as well as limit controls that can trigger automatic notifications if violated.

Automate and Simplify Deals:

Once deal related data is entered into the Oracle Treasury Solution, either manually or automatically, the system can then simplify and automate your entire trade cycle.
First, since security is of utmost concern, Oracle Treasury has multiple levels of control built into the system like granting user access to only certain companies or functions, or requiring dual validation prior to settlement. The system also offers extensive real-time limit functionality that can help you protect against excessive exposures to certain types of position
or risks, like limiting your investments in a particular counterparty for instance.
You can quickly and efficiently generate user defined confirmations and settlement instructions, including various netting options. Additionally we support interest accruals on money market instruments, premium amortizations for options, and mark-to-market revaluation calculations.
Finally, you can automate the creation of your accounting entries related to all your activity through a very flexible system setup. Since we are integrated with Oracle General Ledger, these entries can then be passed seamlessly, with no need to build or maintain interfaces.
Efficient, automated deal administration saves you time so that you can focus on value-added activities to improve your global treasury operations.

Manage Financial Exposures:

Oracle’s Treasury Solution provides powerful analytics that enable global treasury operations to measure and control financial market risks.
Additionally we offer extensive position evaluations including mark-to-market valuations and sensitivities of your existing deals. Financial calculators let you analyze the price and risk profile of financial deals on a pre-dealing basis.
For those of you who deal with the international market place, you know that in volatile foreign exchange markets, your exposure is intensified. So hedging this risk using forwards, and other instruments helps your company stay profitable.
With Oracle’s Treasury Solution, integrated business intelligence unites core business exposures and treasury transactions, and provides critical information to create effective hedges to help your company manage your financial exposures and stay profitable.
