Corporate Finance and Treasury

Out of the box solutions based on our long-standing experience

bdf Cash und Treasury Suite

bdf Cash Suite is a sensible extension to be able to illustrate everything from calculating exposure to controlling risk digitally and continuously based on corporate SAP Finance and Treasury processes. Existing SAP standard data models are intensified and are automatically linked to each other thanks to additional links and are thus available for ERP processes. Thanks to our innovative solution approach innovative processes such as the following can be implemented:

  • Automated calculation of exposure items and analysis thereof
  • Automated cash planning processes according to Best of Bread
  • Cockpit supported material requirements planning (MRP) on an interface integrated into financing processes as well as straight-through communication with the banks
  • ERP integrated liquidity planning based on group-wide Treasury Organisation;
  • Global standards for processes and finance products
  • Optimised process design for the SAP Treasury & Risk Management areas
  • Integration into ERP processes
    • Finance & Controlling
    • Purchasing & Materials
    • Project Management
    • Sales & Distribution

The Cash Position Cockpit (CPC) is the systematic further development of the group-wide Cash Management / MRP functionality towards structuring and cash process management requirements from business practice. Everywhere where the use of (information) know-how, the supply and maintenance of planning and actual data and the information processing, which goes with it, make up an extensive share of the company’s activities, there are also special requirements for handling the automated integration potential. On the one hand this relates to the structuring of the cash organisation, i.e. individual dependencies and allocations between bank accounts and their organisation (i.e. in cash pool organisations) need to be integrated into the company structures and processes throughout the group.
One of the main tasks for Cash Management is to operate the cash pools, which are an important instrument for optimizing liquidity positions in different currencies as well as managing the companies’ FX risk. For this purpose cash managers carry out numerous money market transactions (commercial paper programmes, short-time financing and investment) as well as foreign currency transactions every day by using the electronic treasury trading platforms. All group-internal transactions (inter-company payments and currency hedges) are executed by Corporate Treasury. Cash Management generally also operates the Payment Factory.

With our solutions Corporate Finance can look after all of the group’s external financing. Corporate Finance doesn’t only take care of the relationship with the core banks but also with the rating agencies. With our solution for the SAP Treasury architecture all group companies have a central financing source and that is Corporate Finance. Corporate Finance develops and together with and for all group companies agrees an internal financing plan, which forms the basis for the provision of the necessary funds for all of the group undertakings via the available financing instruments in SAP TRM. Corporate Finance is also the department which is responsible for managing and hedging the group risks by using the financial derivatives.
Following finance products are traded and accounting is managed by SAP

  • Public Bonds
  • Private Placements
  • Cross Currency Swaps
  • Cross Currency Interest Rate Swaps
  • Non Deliverable Forwards
  • Average Rate Options/Average Rate Forwards
  • Interest Rate Swaps
  • Committed Credit Facilities
  • Inter-company loans, long-term and short-term (floating, fixed, annuities).

In our “Treasury Control” solution framework we organise the Treasury back office, where Corporate Finance and Cash Management constitute the front office. Thus Treasury Control is responsible for business and finance control as well as for financial accounting and reporting.
For the SAP Business Suite as well as for the current S4/Hana editions bdf offers a standardised Treasury Reporting suite.
We organise the process in such a way so that the back office together with the employees in the front office forms an integrated team to manage the core treasury processes in an optimal way:

  • Long-term financing,
  • Short-term financing,
  • Banks, Management.

Last but not least we implement the requirements on Treasury and Cash Management reporting and their responsibilities. Additionally all consolidation requirements in the form of KPIs, budgeting, forecasts and reporting to consolidated financial revenue and expense and the net debt of the group are also dealt with.
