The dynamic payments industry continues to expand and evolve, with digital payment vehicles and transaction volumes growing across the globe. In order to keep up with the trends, it's essential for companies to embrace the novel technologies coming their way. The payment companies today are constantly on the verge of optimizing their software or customer experience through the advanced payment methods as well.
Companies mainly are looking to modernize their infrastructure with the support of new service offerings and identifying new revenue streams. Also, by investing in cloud computing and other latest digital technologies companies expect to rapidly address the constantly evolving customer preferences and mitigate risk and regulatory obligations. Not surprisingly, mobile phone payments will continue to grow.
From complicated payment options to invisible and frictionless payments—a lot has changed from the past. For instance, Contactless payments let customers wave their smartphone across a reader or tap a credit card. Compared to swiping a reader or inserting a credit card, which takes longer, contactless payments are faster. Biometric secured payments are now the norm as it is integrated with most smartphones. But advanced use cases are aspiring to fully integrate AI powered smart assistants with voice-recognition technologies. AI will also be essential for successful payments fraud prevention strategies.
Not only the payment methods are evolving but all the activities related to payments are having a major transition too. In 2020, digitization of invoicing and account receivables is soon to become a trend, overcoming all barriers. Already, the world is on the verge of a B2B digital billing revolution because B2B organizations are looking to make billing processes an easy affair for their customers. Payment providers essentially look forward to increase security to detect any fraud tactics, which is why biometrics data becomes an incredibly important tool for payment processes.
Our goal with this edition is to feature such solution providers who are at the forefront of revolutionizing the payment and card space through their top-notch technology. We hope this issue of the CIO Applications Europe helps you build the partnership you and your firm need to foster technologically-driven payment processes.
