Zanders’ SAP webinar series on Central Finance

In succession to the Zanders’ SAP webinar Summer College (last year) we will organize a new webinar series focused on Central Finance. In collaboration with SAP we will introduce Central Finance from a treasury point of view, deep dive into the interaction with treasury’s cash & payment operations and into the optimization of the FX exposure process.

In each 60-minute webinar the best practices will be explained by Zanders, while SAP will elaborate on their latest offerings to support the processes with a focus on accelerated and cloud-based deployments.
