NACHA's Council for Electronic Billing and Payment to Hold Semi-Annual Meeting
Jan. 15 - The Electronic Payments Association’s Council for Electronic Billing and Payment (CEBP) will hold its semi-annual meeting February 20-21, 2013 at the Charleston Place Hotel in Charleston, SC. The meeting will feature research on emerging trends, electronic adoption best practices, technological developments and regulatory updates focused on the electronic billing and payments industry.
Electronic billing and payments are an environmentally friendly, cost effective, and efficient alternative to paper statements and checks. Despite their benefits, organizations continue to struggle with migrating customers to electronic processes. The CEBP meeting serves as an opportunity to obtain key market data and to directly interact with leading- edge companies that are successfully implementing such processes. Specific topics that will be addressed at the meeting include:
- Strategies and tactics to enhance electronic customer relationships;
- Emerging eBilling and payment technologies, including mobile, that business can utilize to realize cost savings and meet customer needs;
- New research regarding why customers still write checks;
- Best practice case studies in payables and receivables management; and
- NACHA and ACH developments.
“The CEBP is thrilled to bring together some of the industry’s leading experts to discuss the present state and future of electronic billing and payments,” said Rob Unger, senior director of eBilling & Payments for NACHA. “Billing and payment services continue to evolve at a rapid pace, and as such, it is critical that billing and payment professionals stay informed of current trends, developments, and research. Our February meeting provides billing and payments professionals from billing companies, corporations, financial institutions, service providers, and payment software vendors that opportunity to learn and engage in forward-thinking discussions regarding the electronic billing and payments marketplace.”
