Immediate Payments, Payments and Industry Trends
I am sitting in my home watching snow fall, it’s April and I just spent the weekend prepping my yard for the upcoming summer season. To say the weather patterns are odd is an understatement. The global climate is warming as we know. And though you don’t see it on a day to day basis, it seems to hit more regularly than in the past, with freakish events, colds snaps, warm spells and snow storms in April. And on this occasion, it had me thinking about our current environment in payments. We are seeing a fundamental change to our ecosystem with technology advancements like Open APIs, big data, AI and foundational changes like Immediate Payment initiatives and regulatory pushes.

Research from Greenwich Associates indicates that the customer experience and ease of doing business are key drivers of loyalty. Extracting value from your technology investments so you can provide a superior customer experience is not only important because of the impact on service, but also on loyalty.
I want to focus on 4 reasons why future proofing your technology is important. These insights are a sneak preview into some of the findings from our upcoming whitepaper produced with Ovum, the annual Global Payment Insight Series.
Fraud Awareness Month Canada – Return of the Lost and Stolen (and Authenticating Wearables in Canada)Monday, March 26, 2018 Seth Ruden to Payments Risk Management

It got a bit of circulation and created significant positive feedback. This time, I would like to bring awareness back to Canada about a potential threat as it relates to the increasingly popular Tap payment channel.
