For businesses looking to streamline their financial operations, SAP Cash Management provides critical functionality for managing cash flow, including analyzing financial transactions and ensuring on-time availability of funds. There are three components included in SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA: cash operations, liquidity management, and bank account management. These components allow organizations to streamline order-to-cash processes, improve liquidity, and enhance visibility into cash movements.

List SAP Cash Management core capabilities include:

  • Managing bank account relationships
  • Cash flow and liquidity reports with a comprehensive overview of your company’s financial position
  • Maintaining accurate liquidity in the business
  • Analyzing financial transactions for a given period
  • Generating reports on cash position receipts and disbursements
  • Automating payments and collections processes

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders

Consider SAP Cash Management needs as a part of a move to SAP S/4HANA. By leveraging SAP Cash Management with SAP S/4HANA, organizations can generate a complete view of cash position and liquidity, empowered by the modern technical architecture of SAP S/4HANA. The ability to track, trace, and reconcile payments in real-time provides enhanced visibility into cash movements, allowing businesses to better forecast and budget for future expenses. Finance and accounting managers can use this information to make informed decisions about cash management and ensure that adequate funds are available as needed.

Implement SAP Cash Management in SAP S/4HANA as a sidecar option to help determine a roadmap. In this interview with SAPinsider, Natasha Doerksen of Cameco talks about her company’s SAP Cash Management implementation journey.

Prioritize opportunities to lower costs and increase operational efficiency with cash management automation. The way companies are leveraging cash management, bank community, and banking communications to address issues such as lowering bank fees has become more complex. By automating cash management functionality, including payment processing and reconciling supplier statements, businesses can reduce the time and effort required to manage their finances.
