“Our success with Sysco is a testament to Accuity’s ability to provide the most reliable data, software and consulting solutions to meet our clients’ specific needs,” explains Akmakjian. “Our work with Sysco ensures their bank information is relevant and uniform across the board, delivers greater automation and better prepares the company to comply with SEPA requirements.”

The SAP Treasury Management Conference 2013 will address the complexities around managing cash capital and investments and the ways in which SAP treasury applications can support organizations across different business scenarios and industry sectors. The event will take place from October 14-16 in Chicago. The presentation by Accuity and Sysco will take place at noon on October 15th.
