Does your treasury require major surgery?

Health Care Service Corporation

Adam Smith Awards Winner – Judges’ Choice

Sometimes continually patching up processes just isn’t enough and major surgery is needed. Hear how HCSC gave their treasury new life with an all-encompassing treasury transformation project.

The sheer scale of projects undertaken by the team at HCSC warranted a most deserved winner as Judges’ Choice in our 2015 Adam Smith Awards.

Most treasuries aren’t impacted by the US Affordable Care Act (Obama Care), which was the primary driver for this programme, but can all learn from the treasury transformation experiences presented in this webinar. They include solutions delivering process improvements ranging from Treasury Operations, Cash Management and Cash Forecasting to Corporate Governance and Audit Controls, Treasury Systems Architecture and, importantly, Staff Development and Enrichment. Register now to hear Forrest Vollrath, David Deranek and Julie Qualiato explain what they did.

This webinar was held on Wednesday 2nd March 2016.
