As many of you may know, I used to work at a very large ACH - over a €1.4trn per year of transactions. Its therefore with some excitement that I look forward to Nachas' Payments 2012
conference next week in Baltimore! Whilst much broader than just ACH, there are few other places where I can indulge my inner geek and talk about some of the nitty-gritty of ACH. ACH has tended to be considered by those outside of the ACH industry as something of a backwater. Its only recent times when people have realised just how important ACH is, that we're starting to see many advisory organisations turn their attention to the subject. Just count how many tier 1 consulting firms are presenting next week, let alone will be attending, compared to even just a few years ago. Yes, ACH isn't geeky anymore, its sexy! You heard it here first :-) There are always the announcements that accompany any show. I'm party to one announcement between 2 clients that I think is a very interesting - expect commentary and thoughts when its in the public domain next week! From the inquiries I've received, I also expect the Nacha consultation on Same Day Payments to be a topic of many conversations, along with the inevitable questions relating to mobile. Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting many clients and prospects, and as always, if you see me, please do stop me and me and say hello.
