SAINT LOUIS (Oct. 1, 2013) – As the worldwide mobile payments market continues to grow at a rapid pace, and with emerging technologies entering the field, today’s consumers demand convenience and choice in how they access funds, make purchases and complete payments. Perficient, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRFT), a leading information technology consulting firm serving Global 2000 and other large enterprise customers throughout North America, today announced it will serve as a Star Sponsor and present on online and mobile bill pay at Money2020. Money2020 brings together leading innovators to explore the trends that form the common thread in payments and financial services innovation such as the mobile Internet, open platforms and consumer empowerment; the conference will be held Oct. 6-10 at the Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
“Digital technologies are disrupting the industry, changing the way consumers interact with organizations, including financial institutions and retailers,” said Jeff Fisher, director of operations and advisory services, Perficient Financial Services practice. “If enterprises are going to remain competitive, it is imperative they integrate portal, mobile, social and cloud technologies with existing payment and banking models and IT architecture to support financial services consumers’ demands and create a consistent, omni-channel experience.”
During Money2020, Fisher will moderate the “Emerging Online and Mobile Consumer Bill Payment” panel on Monday, Oct. 7 from 3:15 to 4:05 p.m., which will focus on how companies are making bill payment easier and more relevant for consumers.
In addition, Perficient financial services experts will be available in Booth #532 to discuss how its financial services customers, which include three of the top five U.S. retail banks and leading card issuers and payment processors, have elevated capabilities with new mobile and payment strategies, business intelligence and analytics, enterprise information solutions, and fraud and risk solutions. Specifically, attendees can learn how through its partnerships with leading technology innovators, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, salesforce.com, TIBCO and EMC, Perficient enables businesses to accelerate the delivery of innovative banking products and services for a competitive advantage, improve operational efficiency, minimize organizational risk, and focus on enhancing the customer experience across banking channels.
Perficient also will provide an “Emerging Payments Toolkit” for bank and retail executives that outlines the payments tools needed to enhance the mobile banking experience and make omni-channel retailing a reality for today’s digital consumer, resulting in better engaged and more loyal customers.
