Any big technology breakthroughs yet in corporate payments?

New research from Mercator Advisory Group says that corporate payments technology is improving but mature fintechs remain at the forefront of capabilities.

Boston, MA – April 25, 2017 – So much has been written about fintech and payments during the past couple of years. It might be best to take a pause and see what is really “emerging” and what is instead the natural progression of digital solutions across the corporate payments/payables space. We have all heard of blockchain and APIs, but where are they in play for corporate payments?

In a new ForeSight report, Emerging Technology in Corporate Payments: Faster Strides but Legacy Providers Remain the Leaders, Mercator Advisory Group reviews the corporate payments landscape and discusses both startup venture capital-based solutions as well as the more mature fintech providers and bank solutions with a view toward what can be expected to have a real impact during the next several years.

"Corporate payments technology is in the midst of truly unprecedented change, with cloud-based digital solutions, real-time rails, new business models, better network connectivity, and advanced technology being utilized and tested on an ongoing basis,” commented Steve Murphy, Director of Mercator Advisory Group’s Commercial and Enterprise Payments Advisory Service, author of the report. “Some of the startup solutions are interesting small business plays, but the more complicated corporate solutions, while creating excitement, incremental improvements, and better ways of doing business, are not yet necessarily transformational breakthroughs in the way corporates do business.”
