Curating a full-service treasury management system

Project overview and objectives

When a healthcare and academic research non-profit engaged our team, they left the benefits of Kyriba largely untapped:

  • Kyriba was set up as a databaselimited to bank and ERP connectivity
  • Manual processes plagued their ability to efficiently categorize cash flows, build forecasts, execute and approve treasury payments, and monitor upcoming maturities
  • An absence of key processes, like a formal bank fee analysis program and a method to track daily intercompany movements, made insight into spend difficult

What we did

With Kyriba already in use, it’s important to have a plan for increased functionality that doesn’t disrupt live processes. We moved swiftly and carefully to:

  • Identify and develop architecture to consolidate all intercompany activity—including daily ZBAs, ad-hoc funding, and pay-on-behalf-of transfers—in the in-house banking module to automatically update balances
  • Plan and lead biweekly working sessions that promoted real-time design feedback, configuration review, and user engagement


At project close, the team saw immediate ROI:

  • $60,000 reduction in annual bank fees
  • A custom cash flow taxonomy that automatically categorized 99% of bank transactions
  • Time savings equivalent to 12 hours/week thanks to automatic cash visibility that eliminated the need for daily balance calculations and weekly forecasting efforts
  • 100% automatic tracking of 8 subsidiaries’ lending positions
  • Increased payment approval controls and improved forecast visibility​​
