  • Choosing & adopting a leading business model for innovative payments & platforms to generate revenue channels better integrated across the value chain
  • Flowing value added service initiatives up and downstream to benefit customers and merchants and take the pain out of monetising payments
  • Navigating the risk vs. reward of new payment initiatives from customer and business perspectives
