I took a slight detour en route home from Las Vegas (via Death Valley and Yosemite – spectacular!) and just finished writing up my observations.
This year is the largest NACHA Payments conference to date (they get bigger and bigger each year) with nearly three thousand attendees. There were sessions devoted to ACH, check electronification, card solutions, global payments, corporate payment solutions and the payments industry over all. Over the course of the conference I attended eight sessions and had one-on-one conversations with seven vendors. I also participated in a press conference with the NACHA Leadership.
