Chadds Ford, PA (PRWEB) January 16, 2014
Vizant Technologies (“Vizant”), the only independent consultancy and advisory firm in the payments industry, has announced the launch of a new payments-centric blog (http://vizant.com/payment-blog).
Vizant’s payments blog is part of an integrated online and offline campaign designed to educate and simplify the complexity of financial payments for Vizant’s expansive client base.
Vizant serves clients across all market and industry sectors, ranging in size from $5.0 million to $20.0 billion in payment transaction volume. The international client list built over the years includes B2B and B2C companies, professional sports teams, leading universities and distinguished not-for-profit institutions.
For the latest blog entry, Vizant compares the cost of accepting financial payments to the cost of airline travel in that airlines are able to justify their opaque pricing structure in terms of demand, competition, customer loyalty, etc., when in reality they have established very sophisticated metrics and pricing models that have one goal: to maximize revenue on every single ticket.
Vizant makes the case that the financial payments industry is eerily similar in its approach to pricing and cost for the acceptance of credit cards, debit cards, prepaid cards, e-checks, paper checks and ACH payments. If consumers had the ability to know what the airline would really accept for every ticket purchased, then consumers would be in control. This is exactly the type of transparency and power Vizant brings to clients in regards to costs to accept all types of financial payments.
Vizant’s unparalleled level of expertise and knowledge has been gained through thousands of client engagements, from New York to California, and London to Australia. No matter how extensive the knowledge possessed by someone in an organization’s finance or treasury area, Vizant brings a level of expertise and industry acumen that is unmatched. Vizant’s analytical processes, proprietary information and multiple U.S. patents work together to assist their clients in reducing their cost to accept financial payments.
