If It's Broke...Fix It!
Despite all of the advances in the payments space, some gaps still remain. Speakers identify these gaps and suggest how strategic decision-making processes can solve them. Forum attendees understand how to assess the gaps from their organization's standpoint, and how to take action to implement progressive change. This interactive session encourages attendees to challenge the concepts presented.

Go Beyond Knowing Your Customers
Putting customers first is a top priority for financial institutions and knowing your customers is a great place to start. However, it’s not the end all be all when it comes to maintaining your bottom line. There are still plenty of challenges to overcome, such as younger generations not using FIs as much as the generations before them, regulations and reputation just to name a few. How do you overcome and still prosper? Start by defining your goals and acknowledging the challenges likely to present themselves on the way to achieving them. This may seem like a simple, logical step but identifying and ultimately working through the challenges can cost you if hastily done. Filene’s Senior Impact Director details how to create and execute actionable strategies for working through these challenges and ultimately achieving your goals.

Treasury Management’s Next Generation Payment Experience
Driven by the rapidly evolving payments ecosystem, banks are rapidly deploying their next generation payment products to improve the treasury manager’s user experience. Real-time value transfer models, payment services hubs, API banking, and digital banking initiatives will enhance the user experience, simplify and remove friction from the payments process, and introduce opportunities to improve working capital management and risk controls that have not previously been possible. A panel of experts discuss all of these capabilities and what the next generation payment experience will provide for end users, as well as what the opportunities are moving forward for treasurers.

Real-Time Payments: Managing Implementation Strategy
Real-time payments in the U.S. continue to evolve and may become a reality sooner rather than later. With The Clearing House piloting a real-time payments program in the U.S., other real-time initiatives are already happening around the world. Banks have to carefully assess the implementation of a real-time solution that will support both their domestic and international markets. Speakers explore lessons learned in other geographies, and compare and contrast those lessons to the U.S. market. Speakers also examine some of the critical factors that financial institutions need to consider as they develop an implementation strategy, which can accelerate the go-to-market timeline.
