The Payments Industry is interesting because it is constantly changing, and technology has always been a significant change agent.

How might AI transform the payments industry? And how should organizations mobilize for this transformation? It’s time to start talking about this topic seriously - with each other - and not just asking ChatGPT.

More than 29 billion ACH Network payments were made in 2021, valued at close to $73 trillion. While ACH technology has been around for decades, modernization has made this system virtually unrecognizable from what existed in the 1970’s, and it continues to evolve.
