Hear both corporate and bank perspectives on identifying and overcoming challenges in payments, corporate banking services, and partnerships.
We are in the midst of a transportation revolution. Billions of dollars are being poured into connected cars, autonomous vehicles and smart cities. With the rapid investment, experts predict more and more connected cars on the road in the coming years, more ride-sharing and fractional ownership and autonomous vehicles on the road in the next decade. As a result, companies need to plan for this change and recognize that the source and flow of payments is being disrupted, as well. We’re moving toward a friction-free, plastic-free future. Card not present is taking on a whole new meaning. In this session, we’ll examine the current landscape, consumer trends and examine what companies need to do to innovate for the future.
Historically payments have developed in silos with different standards, infrastructure, geographical boundaries, use cases and end-users. Roles were clearly defined and access was tightly controlled. The move to open and instant payment rails is an opportunity to review the blueprint for payments. Driven by digital interactions in both payments innovation and the wider environment, customer and merchant expectations are growing towards an instant, integrated, multi-channel, yet personalized payments experience. Some payments may be initiated across one channel and completed via another. Others deeply embedded into the transaction context with the inter-bank rails almost invisible. The money movement itself is increasingly a commodity and payment providers are looking for new ways to drive value, increasing customer loyalty and engagement. This session will focus on examining the trends towards payments convergence, identify business models that are emerging, and discuss how to future proof payment infrastructures to embrace new opportunities.
