NEC APAC & TASConnect revolutionize the way organizations measure and manage working capital

Singapore, 05 September 2023 – NEC Asia Pacific (NEC APAC), the regional headquarters of leading information and communications technology provider NEC Corporation (HQ: Japan) in Southeast Asia, signed a strategic agreement with TASConnect, a wholly owned subsidiary of SC Ventures Holdings Limited – Standard Chartered’s innovation, fintech investment and ventures arm – to develop a joint technology solution that seeks to revolutionise the way organisations measure, monitor, manage and enhance financial performance, ultimately driving sustainable growth and improving their organization’s working capital efficiency.

Through this collaboration, NEC APAC and TASConnect will provide organisations with powerful real-time analytics tools, together with TASConnect’s comprehensive working capital management platform-as-a-service to make informed decisions, thereby enhancing financial efficiency. This partnership represents a powerful synergy between both organizations, united by a shared vision of transforming financial management practices.

 

Through NEC Financial Insights

One of the core components of this technology tool supported by NEC APAC is a single-window visualisation of crucial financial health metrics, enabling organizations to gain real-time insights into their organisation’s financial performance. Additionally, key decision makers can set key performance indicators (KPIs) related to working capital and other vital financial metrics. Performance against these KPIs can then be accurately tracked and measured.

Furthermore, organizations will have the ability to compare their organization’s financial performance against industry benchmarks, facilitating a deeper understanding of their competitive standing. In-depth diagnostics and root cause analysis tools are also incorporated, assisting decision makers in identifying the underlying factors influencing their financial health. Most importantly, organizations will receive actionable recommendations tailored to each organisation’s unique situation, facilitating the improvement of financial metrics and overall operational efficiency.

 

Through TASConnect: Enhancing Working Capital Management

TASConnect enhances scalability, efficiency and transparency of enterprise value chain finance programs, particularly in accounts payable (AP) and accounts receivable (AR). Organizations can realise a scalable and seamless expansion in their finance programs, which is achieved through better access to diversified liquidity sources, connection to multi-parties, better value chain data analytics and the automation of complex workflows.

TASConnect’s platform also enables improved yields of trapped or idle treasury cash – a critical aspect of working capital management. By optimizing idle cash, organizations can achieve enhanced working capital cycles and drive efficiencies in their financial operations.

NEC Financial Insights capabilities, together with TASConnect’s enhanced working capital solutions offered on its cloud-based platform-as-a-service, promises to be a game-changer for organizations seeking to unlock sustainable economic value in their finance and treasury functions.

Mr Michio Kotegawa, Senior Vice President, NEC APAC, said, “We are thrilled about the potential impact of this collaboration with TASConnect. Through this partnership, we are equipping organizations with the tools they need to navigate the complexities of modern finance and drive sustainable growth.”

“We are bringing the best to our clients by partnering with the best in the industry,” said Mr Kingshuk Ghoshal, Co-founder and CEO of TASConnect. “We are honoured to join hands with NEC Asia Pacific to deliver smarter business intelligence and comprehensive analytics to our clients for enhanced decision values.”

For example, the Customer is the party that has decided to grant Bank Participant permission to access their Workspace and/or for Customer Data to be transmitted to Bank Participant’s system and/or may enable or disable representatives or other Users to access any Customer Data that has been submitted to the Customer’s Workspace. The choices that Customer makes in configuring its Workspace in relation to Customer Data will affect how the Customer Data is accessed, used, disclosed, modified, deleted or otherwise processed.

To the extent that Bank Participant provides any information to the TASConnect Platform (via the TASConnect APIs, other automatic transfer or specific uploads), Bank Participant acknowledges and agrees that, as between Bank Participant, the Customer and TASConnect, it is the Customer who is solely responsible for:
      1. informing Bank Participant and its representatives of their policies as to how they intend to process and share the information or content that Bank Participant submits to the TASConnect Platform (for the most part, we will merely follow the Customer’s instructions to process that information or content);
      2. obtaining any rights, permissions or consents from Bank Participant and its representatives that are necessary for the lawful use of any content or information that Bank Participant submits to the Customer’s Workspace (including any transfer of such content or information to another party or another jurisdiction); and
