Video: Industry Experts Agree: Get Excited About Payments

Payments industry professionals gathered for the Technology Association of Georgia's  2016 FinTech Symposium in Atlanta recently. And they had a lot to say about what’s happening in the payments space.

Innovation

Whether the topic is omni-channel commerce opportunities, mobile payments or specialized merchant software, industry insiders have an opinion. Some believe 2015 was the year of mobile payments and others say it hasn't arrived yet. Some insist the most important innovation is in the merchant space and others believe it's tied to repurposing existing infrastructures to fit modern demand and needs. But they all agree that great innovation is happening in payments and that those who intend to win in this space will embrace the changes and hold on for a bumpy, but exciting ride.

Regulation

A common theme at any gathering of payments experts these days is regulation. Industry professionals are asking how best to balance compliance issues with the need to innovate and compete in the marketplace. The consensus is that that regulation isn't going away, and the name of the game is learning how to work in new and innovative ways within the confines of regulatory constraints.

Fintech is the Place to be

Everyone in the payments space seems to say the same thing – fintech is where it's at! Where else can you see such an array of creative innovation matched with consumer-focused commerce, alternative lending, and legacy businesses partnering with fresh start-ups? It's an exciting time to be in this industry and only picking up more steam.
