Banks’ merchant clients, like companies in the rest of the economy, have become highly dependent on cloud technology services. Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) and Integrated Software Vendors (ISVs) have seen strong growth in their payments volumes handled through their integrated channels at the expense of traditional merchant payment terminals.
Amidst the complex client activity, many banks’ merchant-services operations are left resource-constrained after establishing third-party merchant acquisition partnerships. To earn the right to continue a compelling, full-service proposition to the critical small- and medium-business (SMB) segment, the Bank’s merchant payments operation must evolve to become an integrated payments player.
The webinar’s speakers will explore the key themes currently transforming merchant payments scene:
- How merchants are changing their payments approach when opening or expanding their businesses
- The roles of ISO/ISV players and their impact on acquisition, boarding and sales/payment channels
- Choices that banks’ SMB units can make to maintain the lead in the client relationship
Participants can expect to take away insights about how these trends are impacting SMB banking, and ideas of what steps are needed to remain relevant to clients in payment services.
