Glenbrook B2B Payments – At a Tipping Point?

Glenbrook Partners Erin McCune and Carol Coye Benson have been following the B2B payments space for years – watching the slow progress of conversion from paper to electronics, and the heartbreak of failed initiatives.

See some of our thoughts about B2B payments, and the seemingly intractable problem of conversion to electronics, on this page.

Looking forward – What’s Going to Happen With B2B Payments

We’re working on our view of the future for B2B.  We’re looking at both big enterprise and small company angles, and at both users (companies) and providers (processors, networks, banks, service providers).  What we’re looking for is evidence that the conversion rate is increasing – that we’ve somehow reached (or are reaching) a “tipping point” in B2B payments.
