Short-Term Financing Tool.
TreasuryPoint calls the Optimizer "a sophisticated artificial intelligence decision-making support tool." Using daily information about a company's financial situation that the treasurer inputs, plus live feeds from current rate and financial market data sources, the Optimizer analyzes a company's short-term investing or borrowing choices and calculates its optimal choices over a one- to 90-day period. The product's recommendations resulted in lower cost of funds and increased investment returns in all live tests and historical case studies.
"We were looking for a better way to manage our cash, and about three months ago we heard about the Optimizer's 30-day free trial offer," said Tom Riley, director of finance of Pacific Coast Feather Co., a Seattle-based maker of bedding products. "Its performance and results have exceeded expectations. After inputting our cash flow forecasts, the Optimizer returns a recommendation in minutes. It has helped make our decisions quicker and smarter, and has added discipline to our treasury process."
In addition to the Optimizer, TreasuryPoint.com features up-to-the-minute treasury market data, expert commentary and editorial and educational content targeted to corporate treasury professionals. TreasuryPoint.com also recently planned to add a trading platform for institutional money market funds.
