A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to present on the topic of key trends in payments and commerce at Sage Summit 2014, Sage North America’s annual customer and partner event. Since getting paid is a top priority for all businesses, the topic garnered quite a bit of interest from small and medium business attendees.
So, I thought I’d share presentation highlights in this post, which discusses the sea change underway when it comes to how people want to shop and transact business, and why it is driving the need for businesses to reframe how they think about payments.
View the presentation above to learn about:
- Key trends in payments and commerce, including ecommerce, mobile commerce, social shopping, omnicommerce and new types of forms of payments and currencies.
- What this means for you as an SMB decision maker, and why flexibility and integrating payments with financials and other business systems will become critically important.
- What you need to think about and plan for in this area, and why taking a more strategic view of payments and help you attract more customers and grow revenues.
And please let me know what you think about this topic! What other trends are you seeing, and how are you thinking about them in terms of your business?
