Manufacturing business large or small who are importing and exporting materials or product are at the mercy of both exchange rates and fees from their provider – and often without a personal account manager handling their work. Caxton offers a personal account manager to all sized business, as well as a range of advice and hedging solutions to individually tailor solutions to your manufacturing business' exact currency needs.
Manufacturing finance teams need to operate like a high-powered machine to keep pace with project budget approvals, expense reports, and employee reimbursements. Not to mention tracking spending for individual projects and organising information to set future budgets. Manual expense management invites room for delays, errors, and fraud or losses.
When you opt to abandon outdated manual expense processes, in favour of an automated expense management platform, the benefit is a multiplier of all staff. Moving to an automated expense management platform means diverting time spent chasing incomplete forms and reimbursing employees, to more strategic work for all teams involved.
Sending hundreds or thousands of payments to staff and suppliers each month can be labour intensive and expensive. Overseas payments add an additional level of expense and labour. Maintaining adequate cash flow is one of the most important factors for any business day to day, so making bulk and payroll payments 1-2 weeks before the actual payday can leave businesses with a hole in their balance sheet. Automating payroll payments can lead to same-day payments, which could see your manufacturing business in a better financial position.
