Foreign exchange isn’t always about the ‘big trades’. Many organizations that deal with international currencies find that their FX needs start small. It may not seem like it, but your routine, day-to-day operations could be a larger currency risk exposure than you think.

Whether your ordinary operations are taking up time and resources that could—and should—be devoted to other matters or your current processes aren’t as efficient as they could be, one important step to managing your company’s FX  is taking a look at how you handle transactions.

If you feel that you’re having trouble handling your transaction volume or you’re not handling your international payments as well as you could be, don’t worry because Xe can support your business.

What can go wrong with day-to-day transactions?

Depending on how many transactions your business makes each day, these typical, everyday operations could be taking up significant time and resources that would be better spent elsewhere.

Are there areas of your business you think you’re neglecting because of how much time you devote to minute transactions? Are you missing out on the bigger picture because you’re too focused on the small things? When you assess your foreign exchange risk exposures, remember to consider everyday operations as well as the larger scope.

In addition, elaborate, inconvenient processes could end up causing trouble for your business. If, for example, you rely on employees to take care of manual data entry or transactions, there’s always the chance that human error could cause some unnecessary delays, or worse.

This is a common problem for fast-growing businesses. Founders and owners want to monitor international payments and ensure that everything is being taken care of according to their standards, but they don’t have the time to monitor and physically process everything the way they’d like to.
