There has been a seismic shift in consumer and business behavior that has accelerated the pace of digital adoption by many years. In a world where businesses expect speed, precision, transparency, certainty and always-on capabilities, real-time payments offer the control, finality, cost-efficiency, convenience and transparency that puts them in the financial driver’s seat.
