Workshop: Your Roadmap to Building Out a Payments Strategy
10:15am - 12:00pm

This two hour workshop is tailored for executives from small and mid-sized banks who know they need a payments strategy, but don’t know where to start. Whether you’re looking to take on initiatives involving your debit card, mobile payments, P2P or real-time payments efforts, this workshop will provide you with the latest findings and proven tactics from leading industry executives to help you improve your FI’s payments strategy.

  • Understanding how the shift in consumer behavior, attitudes and expectations is impacting the payments competitive landscape
  • Building the business case to make capital investments in new technology initiatives to improve customer retention and acquisition
  • Transforming ingrained policies and practices to build a new approach to payment and distribution channels
  • Preparing your organization to work with APIs and third-party solution providers
  • Freeing up resources to execute your revamped payments strategy
  • Working with your core service provider to create and execute upon your strategy

Part I: The sheer pace of change in the payments industry presents challenges for incumbents to keep up and remain competitive. Financial institutions must continually adapt to a shifting marketplace defined by changing consumer behaviors and expectations, evolving technology and non-traditional competitors. Our first session, led by Deborah Matthews Phillips of Jack Henry & Associates, will examine the critical role of a well-defined payments strategy in addressing these disruptive forces.

Part II: Growing your financial institution with payments means understanding your customers in a digital world. Every payment is an interaction between you and your customer. Yet many financial institutions are only offering 10% of their payment functionality. How can you increase the frequency with which your customers use your payment products to remain relevant and profitable? In our second session led by Ernie Buday of FIS, you’ll receive actionable insights for Making Payments Pay.

Part III: Closing Panel Discussion
