  • Eligiendo la estrategia correcta de pagos móviles para su negocio minorista
    Eligiendo la estrategia correcta de pagos móviles para su negocio minorista Xavier Places, Director de Marketing, Openbravo Recorded: Dec 14 2017 48 mins
    La tecnología móvil ha cambiado la forma en que los clientes esperan pagar y las empresas minoristas que no aceptan pagos móviles pueden quedarse atrás a medida que la adopción de estas tecnologías se vuelve más generalizada. En China, por ejemplo, las transacciones en efectivo casi han desaparecido y los pagos móviles aumentaron más del doble hasta los $ 5 mil millones en 2016, un país donde la solución POS de Openbravo ya acepta pagos móviles con AliPay y WeChat. Los minoristas tradicionales tienen mucho que ganar al aceptar pagos móviles porque brindan comodidad a los consumidores, modernizan la experiencia de tienda, y animan a los compradores a gastar más.
    ¿Que aprenderá?
    Explicaremos los factores que explican el auge de los pagos móviles y describiremos algunas de las soluciones de monedero móvil más populares, como Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, junto con tecnologías que se centran en países específicos como Alipay, WeChatPay y Google. Tez. El panorama de los pagos móviles está fragmentado y en constante evolución, por lo que aconsejamos a los minoristas que consideren cuidadosamente las tecnologías disponibles. Hay muchas razones para aceptar pagos móviles, pero para hacerlo probablemente necesite actualizar su solución de punto de venta, por lo que le ayudaremos a valorar ventajas y desventajas, y cómo Openbravo puede ayudarle en su estrategia.
  • Choosing the Right Mobile Payments Strategy for your Retail Business
    Choosing the Right Mobile Payments Strategy for your Retail Business Xavier Places, Director of Marketing, Openbravo Recorded: Dec 14 2017 40 mins
    Mobile technology has changed the way customers expect to pay and retail businesses that do not accept mobile payments may get left behind as the technology becomes more pervasive. In China, for example, cash transactions have almost disappeared and mobile payments more than doubled to $5 trillion in 2016 -- a country where the Openbravo POS solution already accepts mobile payments with AliPay and WeChat. Brick-and-mortar retailers have much to gain from embracing mobile payments because they provide convenience for consumers, modernize the in-store experience, and can encourage shoppers to spend more.
    What Will You Learn?
    We will explain the drivers behind the boom in mobile payments and describe some of the more popular “Pay” mobile wallet solutions such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, along with technologies that focus on specific countries such as Alipay, WeChat and Google Tez. The mobile payments landscape is fragmented and in constant evolution, so we will advise retailers to carefully consider the technologies available. There are plenty of reasons to accept mobile payments, but to do so you will probably need to upgrade your POS systems, so we will help you weigh up the advantages and disadvantages and outline how Openbravo can help you realize your strategy.

  • Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC
    Digitized identity verification - the future of ID & KYC Sarah Clark,Mitek Systems, Mike Montemarano, JP Morgan & Supriyo Guha, GENPACT Recorded: Nov 14 2017 49 mins
    Financial institutions from all over the world are facing increasingly strict regulations regarding the verification and authentication of their customers’ identity. Furthermore, with the increasing amount of data breaches, status-quo identity verification processes have not only been compromised but have also made complying with current regulations harder. This ever-changing environment has forced a tipping point for organizations to regard the adoption of new technologies for identity verification as a must-have rather than a nice-to-have.

    In the end, financial institutions must satisfy consumers’ demands for speed and ease of use to prevent them from going to the competition. To gain a competitive edge, remain compliant, and offer a frictionless and user experience, it is imperative for FIs to invest in technologies that bridge the compliance-convenience gap.

  • Digital Coin Offerings: Recent SEC Guidance and Tax Considerations
    Digital Coin Offerings: Recent SEC Guidance and Tax Considerations Morrison & Foerster's Joshua Klayman, Jay Baris, Alfredo Silva, Daniel Kahan and Shiukay Hung Recorded: Oct 31 2017 90 mins
    Token sales, also known as ICOs, represent a new capital-raising method that is being explored by a variety of companies in the market. In the past few months, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has provided guidance concerning token sales. Although the SEC did not declare that all digital tokens constitute securities, it cautioned that certain tokens may be securities and that existing securities frameworks apply to token sales, notwithstanding that digital tokens may be distributed via distributed ledger technology.

    In addition, the IRS has published guidance relating to tokens that are “convertible virtual currencies” and has indicated that such tokens generally are treated as property for US federal income tax purposes.
    Token sales, and the legal and regulatory landscapes in the US and around the world with respect to digital tokens, continue to evolve.

    This webinar will explore the current legal, regulatory and tax landscape relating to token offerings and will consider the following:

    •What are digital tokens and how are they typically used and sold?
    •What guidance has the SEC provided regarding token sales, and what is the significance of that guidance?
    •What guidance has the IRS provided regarding tokens and what tax considerations are relevant to tokens and token sales?
    •What are some of the other legal matters that token issuers and their counsel should be aware of when contemplating launching token sales?
  • Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification
    Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification Joe Bloemendaal, Vice President, Sales EU, Mitek Systems; Chris Phillips, Compliance Department, Gain Capital Recorded: Oct 25 2017 41 mins
    The latest EU Anti-Money Laundering directive will significantly increase the frequency with which financial service providers need to conduct ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks. To maximise the effectiveness of digital transformation initiatives, financial services and other regulated industries must find effective digital identity verification solutions.

    Current methods for identity verification checks place an enormous cost burden on banks, payments processors, and lenders, as most methods rely heavily on manual processes. Furthermore, these processes are cumbersome for users, driving away potential customers.

    Figuring out how to balance the competing needs of compliance and costs against the expectations of today’s digital native users is key to any financial service provider looking to win and retain new customers.

    Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new strategic leadership course in Global Risk Academy.

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.

    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently

    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

    How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.
