Understanding the Changes Needed for Performance Management

By Agile Payments News on Apr 27, 2015 10:05:02 AM

Mathew French weighs in on how the need for performance management is changing the face of how Human Resources departments must operate. In reality, there has to be a change. For many managers, the perception of HR is that it operates largely as an administration function. It handles payroll, benefits, processing employees in and out of the company etc. In so many words, HR is a necessary evil. For employees, the perception of HR is that, either direct or vicariously, once HR is gets involved with any issue the solution will not be in favor of the employee.

Making Payments Smart and Familiar At The Same Time

By Agile Payments News on Apr 17, 2015 12:14:14 PM

The problem with the mobile revolution is that it has been “coming” for so long without ever actually fully arriving that the idea of eminent ignition has become somewhat easy to discount. Mobile has been technologically accessible to a mass number of Americans for almost a decade, merchants are starting to come around (or be swept along as EMV upgrades often come part and parcel with NFC capabilities) and big name players like Google, Apple, PayPal and Samsung are staking out their space and going after the emerging mobile market.

Bank of America’s Mobile Deposit Volume Booms 30%

By Agile Payments on Apr 17, 2015 10:00:21 AM

Bank of America might be lagging some of its competitors in mobile banking user growth, but the bank is increasing its remote deposit business at an enviable rate. 

The bank said yesterday that 13% of its deposits last quarter — or roughly $4.5 billion of a total $34.2 billion of new deposits last quarter, by our calculation — came through RDC. That percentage is 30% higher than in the same quarter a year ago. By comparison, BAC increased its mobile users about 18% during that period.

The increase in RDC volume was enough for Brian Moynihan, Bank of America’s CEO, to point to it yesterday during the BAC earnings call as one reason why the bank’s “expenses were managed tightly” during the quarter. Non-interest expense at Bank of America declined from the fourth quarter of 2014 as a result of the bank reducing the number of its financial centers and “the associated cost driven by consumer behavior patterns shifting to more digital,” he said. The shift in question is the one to RDC for deposit making.

The Seven Steps to Cost Savings

By Agile Payments News on Apr 16, 2015 3:14:14 AM

Back in 2011, the U.S. Department of Treasury mandated the implementation of electronic invoicing in support of President Barack Obama’s campaign to cut waste.

By Wayne Akey on Apr 15, 2015 8:45:17 AM

Payment Gateways play an integral role in facilitating ecommerce. Without the creation of a secure method for moving sensitive data the ability to conduct non face to face commerce could not have happened.

For that there was only one person we could turn to: Jeff Knowles - the guy who invented the Payment Gateway and founder of authorize.net.

By Agile Payments News on Apr 15, 2015 7:59:50 AM

As SaaS marketers know, trust is a key factor in running a successful business. Getting customers to sign up for a Free Trial of your software may, at first, be the result of a strong indoctrination process that gets prospects to know, like, and trust your product. It’s trust that makes buying a product or service easier. Sometimes trust is required to even get prospects to sign up for the Free Trial.

Startup Spending

By Agile Payments News on Apr 13, 2015 8:35:35 AM

It’s easier than one would think for tech companies to overspend at the initial startup stage. Bright minds who dream of unlimited possibilities can cause things to go south in a hurry. Millions of dollars can be wasted in the blink of an eye. A lot of what happened to in the Internet Bubble years lurks just around the corner. Staffing the company with “big hitters” from outside companies and paying them exuberant salaries could be the quicksand of today’s tech market.
