How users will interact with systems in tomorrow’s digital society will be very different from what we are all familiar with today. Although touch screens, monitors and keyboards will remain relevant, new types of interfaces will emerge that will alter how we interact with devices and may radically impact how payments are made. 

Here are a few emerging interfaces that I think could become important in the payments arena. Some may seem far-fetched, but the technology is already in place to make all of them a possibility. In my opinion, these revolutionary interfaces could enter our everyday lives sooner rather than later, and they may play a more important role than you might think.

If you were to ask business owners the question, “What keeps you up at night?” I would bet nine out ten would say “Having enough money in the bank to keep the business running!”  Obviously, that answer is a little bit of a cliché, but as a small business owner in a prior life, I was one of those nine. So what can small businesses do to ease the worries associated with that answer?  The first item that comes to mind is managing cash flow.  According to Investopedia, cash flow is defined as the net amount of cash and cash equivalents moving into and out of the business.  In laymen’s terms: how much is coming in and how much is going out.

Making the Case for Bill Pay

Before you say anything, I couldn’t think of a better title.  The real irony is I have worked in the bill pay world for over 12 years and have seen plenty of growth, change, and true evolution.  The better part of my professional career has been spent advising, managing, partnering, or selling bill pay.  So why, after 12 years, do I need to make the case for it?  The answer is simple … more than 10 times a week I am told bill pay is a commodity and old news.  Not to mention, last year Gonzo Banker wrote an article titled, “Is bill pay dead and gone in 5 years?” Now let’s be realistic, dead and gone?  Are the billions of bills that go out to consumers and businesses going to stop?  Are we going to immediately have all our bills automatically withdraw from our account as soon as they are due?  This is where the true dilemma comes in for “killing” bill pay.  The Gonzo Banker article is only looking at one fraction of bill pay (that is currently responsible for almost 50% of the payments made every month).  There is a whole other world of bill pay out there and it is not dying, it is growing by the day.
