This episode is part of our special series on The Digital Payments Tipping Point. In this three-part series I’m talking with executives from WEX’s Corporate Payments division who partnered with the research team at The Economist over the summer of 2020 to look into the state of business-to-business payments in financial services, fintechs, and technology companies. The research found that companies that have grown most robustly during the pandemic are almost all accelerating their evolution away from slow, manual, paper-based payments into secure, data-rich, real-time digital payments.
This 3-part series digs into the issues surrounding this rapid evolution in digital payments. Our first episode featured Greg Sassone, SVP of Business & Partner Growth at WEX Corporate Payments, and focused on whether banks should build, buy or partner when it comes to adopting new technology or innovation.
This episode will focus on the interchange realities that the payments industry needs to face. To wrap the series, we’ll talk with WEX Corporate Payments President Jay Dearborn about the shape of payments to come.
My special guests on this episode are Dylan Jones and Laura Shen. Dylan Jones is the Vice president of operations for the Corporate Payments Solutions division at WEX and Laura Shen is the Director of Strategy for WEX Corporate Payments.
