Transforming Lockbox Into an Information Delivery Asset
There are three on-going realities in the payments industry: Checks are NOT dead; Payment volume of all kinds is increasing; Lockbox penetration (outside of large corporate) is about 30%. Today it is not about the payment channel – it is how to connect to the receivables related DATA across those channels. This is where the real value is for financial institutions and their treasury clients. Lockbox is the key to unlocking this value by transforming it into an information delivery asset.
