VAM (Virtual Account Management)
As corporate enterprises grow bigger and complex they face tremendous pressure for optimum fund utilization. This requires them to have a better view and control of the inflow and outflow of their funds; this is where virtual account comes into the picture. Virtual accounts are dummy accounts linked with the single physical account which enables the corporate to address real-time liquidity needs, manage payables and receivables and segregate funds across different entities.
