London, UK

12 – 14 September, 2022 | 08:30 BST

There are many challenges involved with Commodity Markets Modelling. A major one at the moment is the volatility within the energy markets, specifically the spike in the price of energy including gas throughout the European and world markets. Another challenge which has been there for slightly longer is the generating and accessing of quality data which can feed modelling, in particular AI and machine learning models. There also exists a specific challenge around the modelling of renewables which has become an area of increased interest over the last few years. Finally, there is always a push to have new techniques which can help to improve the performance of trading teams in a very competitive market.

With this in mind, the marcus evans 3rd edition Commodity Markets Modelling, Analytics & Risk Management conference held between 12-14 September, 2022 in London, UK will provide the much-needed techniques on optimising modelling and trading within commodity markets. The event will deliver attendees tailored sessions on accessing the best data types to assist accurate modelling and forecasting. Practical solutions will be delivered regarding battery storage and modelling of intermittent weather sources such as wind and solar energy. Finally, new innovation tools which can assist traders and decision makers in commodity markets spaces will be explored and evaluated.

Attending This Premier marcus evans Conference Will Enable You To:

  • Obtain the best practices for quantitative modelling in commodity markets
  • Appreciate the current need to adjust existing quantitative modelling and trading techniques
  • Overcome the limitations caused by spikes in energy price data
  • Assess business priorities in consideration of macroeconomic change

TIS acquires Cashforce, an AI-powered provider of cash management and forecasting solutions.

17-06-2022 | treasuryXL | Cashforce | TIS


Revolutionizing Global Liquidity Management for Treasury and Finance


Treasury Intelligence Solutions (TIS), a global leader in enterprise payment optimization, today announced their acquisition of Cashforce, an AI-powered provider of cash management and forecasting solutions.

This acquisition will see Cashforce’s leading cloud solution – currently deployed at many of the largest and most sophisticated corporate treasuries in the world – become integrated with TIS’ SaaS payments platform. This unified solution will provide enterprises with an unmatched suite of capabilities for cash management, global payments, and fraud mitigation along with superior connectivity, workflows, and reporting functions.

Over the past few years, TIS and Cashforce have collaborated closely to provide a complementary offering for treasury and finance teams. These efforts were met with immediate success in the market as demand for improved cash management and forecasting tools has risen sharply. Now, TIS’ acquisition of Cashforce presents the perfect opportunity to integrate both products together as part of a more complete offering.

For the thousands of enterprise treasury and finance practitioners who currently use TIS, this acquisition provides access to faster and more accurate cash reporting, forecasting, and working capital management. To date, cash positioning and forecasting are still being performed manually by many treasury groups, which represents a major pain point for CFOs and business leaders when attempting to make strategic financial decisions. However, the robust capabilities provided by Cashforce eliminate many of these inefficiencies and ultimately enable companies to gain quick and accurate insights into their financial position based on reliable payments and liquidity data.

According to Erik Masing, Group CEO of TIS, “Cashforce has been a premier partner of TIS for several years and has contributed significantly to the cash forecasting and management capabilities we offer clients. The acquisition is a natural extension of our business and will allow TIS to further integrate Cashforce’s solution with our platform in order to offer advanced forecasting and data management capabilities to all our clients. This means enterprises can significantly reduce complexity in their global payments and cash management tech stacks by leveraging standardization and transparency afforded by a single, elegant solution.”



For Cashforce, the acquisition means that existing clients can now supplement their robust forecasting capabilities with TIS’ industry-leading payments and bank connectivity features. As explained by Nicolas Christiaen, Founder and CEO of Cashforce, “Giving businesses complete visibility over their cash and liquidity data has always been the core objective of Cashforce. While we have spent years perfecting our capabilities in this regard, TIS has been strengthening their suite of payments, bank connectivity, and cash management tools. When combined, these two sets of capabilities form the ideal solution for global treasury and finance teams to achieve full control and visibility over their entire payments and liquidity architecture – including all entities, back-office systems, and banks.”

With the added capabilities of Cashforce’s solution, TIS now offers a single, scalable cloud platform for clients to address needs in the following areas:

  • End-to-end payment processing and bank statement management
  • Global bank connectivity and financial messaging
  • Real-time cash positioning and liquidity management
  • Multifaceted cash forecasting, cashflow analytics, and working capital management
  • Bank account management and bank documentation management
  • Payment compliance and sanctions screening control
  • Treasury security, regulatory compliance, and fraud mitigation tools

A guide to cash flow forecasting tools in 2022

07-06-2022 | treasuryXL | Nomentia | LinkedIn |

A company’s worst nightmare is to run out of cash or completely miscalculate future cash in- and outflows. To prevent such doom scenarios from happening, companies use cash flow forecasting tools to help them understand current or future cash positions. Having accurate cash forecasting analyses in place is important because they are fundamental for your company’s growth. You can base your strategic investments and financial decisions on them, and they help you decide on how you shape the future of your company.


As with most things, cash flow forecasting is easier said than done. Developing accurate forecasts can be a challenging job. Especially when your business is increasing in size, you need to consider many aspects. Fortunately, there are several great cash flow forecasting tools to help you overcome the challenges you have, to make forecasting easier and more accurate.


What is cash flow forecasting? 

Simply put, cash flow forecasting is the practice of understanding your movement of money that goes in and out of the business, now, in the short-term, or in the long-term. A higher cash inflow than outflow results in a positive cash flow position. And when your cash outflow is bigger than your cash inflow, it results in a negative cash flow position.

Many professionals understand that analyzing cashflows is important yet fail to build reliable processes to do so accurately. Robust cash forecasting will help you understand what your cash position is now, and in the future, simply by analyzing cash in- and outflows.


The challenges of cash forecasting

We will not go too much into detail to discuss the challenges of cash forecasting, which we already did in this article. But commonly, treasury and finance teams struggle with two main reoccurring challenges:


1. Manual processes (lack of automation)

One of the key challenges in cash forecasting remains the amount of manual labor that goes into it. Especially when your organization is larger, and you need to combine financial data from different banks, subsidiaries, and ERP systems. Depending on how frequently your team runs the forecasting process, it can become very time-consuming.

According to different sources, it is recommended that treasury and finance teams run forecasts on a weekly basis to increase financial control. Imagine all the hours that go into this process by doing so manually: collecting data from multiple data sources and recording everything into your spreadsheets. And that doesn’t even include running the analyses to base your strategic decisions on. To top it off, the spreadsheets also contain many errors, which makes them less reliable.

To add to that, by collecting your forecasting data periodically you never have real-time insight into your cash position because your cash predictions may have changed already the day after you made your analysis.


Cash flow challenges graph
Having flexible cash flow and liquidity reporting, and collecting data on cash flows was found most challenging or very challenging for around 70% of decision-makers according to our study with Forrester.


2. Lack of centralization

As mentioned earlier, it is a very inconvenient aspect to create liquidity and forecast reports when the data you need is scattered across multiple systems. In global companies, you would need to access several bank accounts to check balances. Or you are working with different subsidiaries, where you need to rely on the timeliness and accuracy of your colleague’s input. Whatever systems you’re using, having a centralized place that automatically pulls all the data from them into one place in real-time can benefit you tremendously.


What is a cash flow forecasting tool?

Effective cash flow forecasting tools are there to help you overcome typical forecasting challenges. They help you manage and track all your business cash flows now and in the future. Allowing you to make better strategic and investment decisions for your business.


The advantages of using a cash forecasting tool 

There are various solutions available on the market, and they all work differently. Ideally, a tool should be able to help you with your cash forecasting in various ways.

Access real-time information

A great tool gives you an instant overview of your cash position, inflows, and outflows at any time you need it. The more up-to-date your data is, the better you can justify your decisions.


Connect and centralize all source-systems

Especially for larger enterprises with multiple banks, ERPs, and other source systems, a tool needs to be able to flawlessly connect to all of them. That’s the only way for you to combine all the financial data required to make accurate cash forecasts.


Automate the process of collecting data for you 

Both the gathering of real-time information and connection to all source systems should be automated by the tool or software. That way you can automatically gain real-time insight into your cash position without manual labour.


Automatically able to create reports and infographics based on your data

Following up on the previous point, once your tool has automatically-collected data, it should be able to visualize it in a customized way that suits your needs. Whether it is certain types of reports, graphs, or other dashboards.


Save resources while enabling better decision-making

Better and faster analyses of your cash position and forecast without creating reports manually will help you save the time that you can use for making strategic decisions.


The different types of cash forecasting tools


Basic tools for small and medium-sized companies 

Market research has shown that in the U.S. in 2018 alone, around 63% of companies used spreadsheets for budgeting and reporting purposes. Even though this number was declining, spreadsheets are still considered the most basic go-to tool for cash flow forecasting.


The two main (free) providers for cash forecasting tools on a basic level (they don’t need explanation):




Of course, you can make your spreadsheets as advanced as you want. But the fact is that most smaller organizations traditionally use spreadsheets to do their cash flow forecasting. Their set-ups are less sophisticated and with fewer data sources. As a result, it’s easier to pull the data you need.

The advantage of spreadsheets is that they are very cheap and effective. Yet, once your organization grows bigger and you start using several banks, and other source systems like ERPs, they become unmanageable and start taking a lot of your team’s resources.


Intermediate tools for small and medium-sized companies

There are several intermediate cash forecasting tools that are increasingly helpful for smaller and medium-sized companies compared to the basic tools. Sometimes they can replace spreadsheets completely, but most often they complement them.



Microsoft’s Power BI is a tool that can collect data from different sources and allows you to visualize them through dashboards. Though it’s a handy tool, it requires quite a bit of training and getting used to. Connecting Power BI to your systems, importing data, and building the right reports can still require a lot of manual labor.  

Power BI’s list of systems you can connect to is limited. Especially bank and ERP connections are lacking which are usually required for bigger companies.

Power BI Dashboard
Power BI dashboard example



If you have an accounting system, a CRM, and some data warehousing system, chances are that Causal can help you out collecting that data in one place. Their data visualization tool will help you better understand the combined data from your connected places.

Just like Power BI, Causal is unable to connect to financial institutions, like banks, that are often required to get a better understanding of your cash position.



Sheetgo is a handy tool when you want to combine the data from different spreadsheets. The more spreadsheets with financial data you have the more challenging it is to combine them and build accurate cash flow forecasts.

Sheetgo does not take away the manual work that includes pulling data from source systems. It is more a tool made to integrate with Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel.

If you’re looking for a cash flow forecasting tool that can connect multiple source systems, banks, and ERPs – then Nomentia Liquidity is a great option. Nomentia Liquidity gives you visibility over your past, present, and future cash positions.

Nomentia automatically pulls all data from different source systems and visualizes them in a customized format for each client. The implementation is also done together with a dedicated customer specialist, so you don’t have to worry about any manual labor or integration problems.

Advanced solutions for medium and big-sized companies

If you’re looking for more complete cash forecasting services, then you need to consider the top treasury and cash management vendors that are well known. Most of these vendors offer Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions which take away the work of managing the solution.



Nomentia’s cash forecasting SaaS solution allows you to do forecasts as detailed as you require. You can run real-time forecasts continuously based on a collection of all scattered systems that hold your financial data.

The platform works very intuitively, and you can even run simulations for possible scenarios. The data visualization can be customized by yourself or by specialists from Nomentia. In contrast with other vendors, you can only opt for the cash forecasting module without committing to any other modules offered by Nomentia.



Kyriba has a tool for cash forecasts that combines multiple data sources. They can provide you with daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly cash forecasts.

In their SaaS, Kyriba has a worksheet that can help you automate manual work and connect different systems to each other for better-centralized cash forecasting analyses.



The cash forecasting tool by Gtreasury allows you to combine data into a single worksheet and run different analyses within it. You can run forecasts daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually.

A recent feature GTreasury introduced is the trademarked SmartPredictions, which can predict future liquidity and changing conditions with the help of data imports and artificial intelligence.



Coupa’s treasury solution includes a cash forecasting module that can build scenarios, and do analyses to measure your short, mid, and long-term business liquidity.

The financial data is captured in a reporting functionality that treasury teams can easily analyze and share within the organization. Coupa offers both standard and customized reports.



Serrala offers cash forecasting as part of its bigger cash management solution. The module can be set up for cash flow-based planning categories, scenarios, and simulations.

The solution helps you automate your processes by configuring the settings yourself, and it gives you insight into your cash position through the consolidation of various data sources.


The right tool for your company depends on your needs  

A cash flow forecasting tool can be beneficial for you to tackle the manual labor and time consumed due to a lack of centralization. If your set-up is not that advanced yet, you can rely on solutions like spreadsheets or intermediate tools like Power BI, Causal, Sheetgo, or Nomentia Liquidity.

For bigger companies with several source systems, we recommend looking into advanced cash forecasting tools that will significantly decrease your costs. Even if the initial investment of buying such a solution may appear slightly higher.
