Cash management is an important task in large companies and groups but also in SMEs. For SMEs the management’s entire attention is directed towards the short term and cash management. Cash management has become critical and includes problems such as exchange strategies and optimization of the cash use. In this context, the information system is used to simplify cash management and to provide a more reliable and on time information. Such systems are used in enterprises and banks in order to allow their clients manage their resources. Our aim is to study the case of medium-sized companies in order to identify their needs, and the intention to use a cash management system. The companies that offer integrated information systems for cash management develop products adapted to medium-sized companies.
