Many innovations have emerged in the past few years which have used mobile devices and connectivity to make payments and other financial transactions simpler and faster. Examples range from digital wallets to automated machine-to-machine payments.
The majority of these innovations needed some modifications to front-end processes to improve the customer and business experience, while leaving the underlying payments infrastructure and security undisrupted.
An expert from NTT Data will give a presentation in Japanese on some of these innovations and on how users’ experiences are changing including:
- Cashless payments and Settlements
- Crowdfunding and alternative lending
- Insurance coverage possibilities
- Investment Management
