This episode is part of our special series on The Digital Payments Tipping Point. In this three part series I will talking with executives from WEX who in the summer of 2020, partnered with the research team at The Economist to look into the state of business-to-business payments in financial services, financial technology companies or fintechs and technology companies. The study found that companies that have grown 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 including building, partnering or both, interchange realities, and the shape of payments to come.
Our first episode features our special guest Greg Sassone the SVP of Business and Partner Growth at WEX. He’s been in payments and financial services for 20 years.
