Cash Management Treasury Services: How to Empower Your Business

February 7, 2024

You can strengthen your business by adding more staff, creating dynamic marketing campaigns, or expanding your products and services. But one of the most important strategies for improving your business is simply having effective cash management services in place.

Business issues can often be caused by poor cash flow, so it’s vital to ensure you have a stable cash management plan for your company.

Texas Gulf Bank is uniquely positioned to help local businesses. We have over 110 years of experience providing banking solutions to businesses across the Southeast Texas Gulf Coast, including Cash Management Services.

Discover how cash management services work, the benefits they may create for your business, and why partnering with Texas Gulf Bank could be the right choice for your business. 

What Are Treasury Management Services?

Utilizing Treasury Services* can help ensure your company is prepared for the future by providing useful information when analyzing past financial decisions and making long-term strategic cash projections. Another major component of treasury management is the day-to-day handling of cash coming in and out of your business, also called cash management.

Cash management tools allow your business to better stabilize the inflows and outflows of cash from your company’s operational, financial, and investment activities, helping maintain financial stability.

Automating specific financial transactions and having accurate financial reporting in place helps put your business into a position to experience steady and consistent cash flow throughout the year.

Texas Gulf Bank offers a variety of cash management services that may be able to help eliminate some of the transactional inefficiencies and reporting gaps that can often hinder business growth.

Our services may expedite the movement of cash and also help ensure there is enough working capital available to cover both ongoing expenses as well as unexpected costs or business emergencies.

Cash Management Treasury Services You May Need

Your business can choose from a wide range of cash management services – depending on the size of your business accounts and the complexity of your financial transactions. These services are designed to simplify business finances so you can focus on business growth and pursue development initiatives.

Some of the specific cash management services offered by Texas Gulf Bank include the following.

Sweep Accounts

If a major concern for your business is optimizing cash liquidity, sweep accounts may benefit your company. Sweep accounts automatically transfer any excess cash from your business checking accounts into your other interest-bearing bank accounts, potentially maximizing your returns.

This simple process of moving funds allows your business to earn interest on surplus funds without requiring additional monitoring or hands-on manual processes. In addition, funds from sweep accounts can be useful if you encounter unexpected expenses or need them for critical purchases.

Lockbox Services

For businesses that need a streamlined process for Accounts Receivable payments, lockbox services are a key component of our solution. Lockbox services give your customers a centralized location to remit payments, which may help expedite payment processing.

By outsourcing the cash management function and payment processing, your business has the opportunity to increase operational efficiency. The result could be more time to focus on growth and development. 

Account Balance Reporting

Texas Gulf Bank also offers detailed balance reporting for your various bank accounts – with real-time accuracy. Your business can access comprehensive reports on exact account balances, cash positions, and transaction histories for research or analysis purposes.

With our up-to-date balance reporting services, your business may gain the ability to make more informed, strategic financial decisions.

How Does Cash Flow Management Benefit Your Business?

Although your company may excel at your core business, handling cash flow statements and financial transactions could be a source of frustration or costly delays. Not all business owners have the resources needed to manage all facets of business finances effectively.

Choosing cash management services may provide several important benefits to your business, including the following.

Improved Cash Flow

With cash management services, you can help ensure cash is available for all immediate operational needs, including payroll, taxes, utilities, and ongoing expenses.

Without effective cash management, your business could struggle to pay important expenses or employees, which can negatively impact your business, customers, and long-term reputation. 

New Growth Opportunities

When your business has access to accurate reporting on your current financial standing and current liquidity, you may be able to take advantage of more strategic growth opportunities.

Too often, businesses are forced to pass up important contracts or investment opportunities because of financial uncertainty or a lack of liquidity when options become available.

Mitigate Risks

With cash management services, your business may be better able to withstand potential business risks like seasonal fluctuations or major business disruptions. 

Transitioning to cash management services provides additional security through account reporting and payment processes, which may reduce the likelihood of potential fraud. This step could lower your company’s risk of theft or financial impropriety. 

Greater Business Efficiency

The manual processes of receiving and processing payments or generating financial reports can become highly inefficient over time. Cash management services may help resolve this problem by streamlining manual processes into a seamless and simple process.

Your business should experience fewer errors in payment processing, little to no delays in generating financial reports, and a stronger cash flow as payments are made and received in a prompt way.

Eliminating some of the manual processes of cash handling could make your business more efficient, less wasteful, and better able to focus on growth opportunities.
