    • Retail Payments: Stay Ahead of the Curve
      Retail Payments: Stay Ahead of the Curve Kevin Johnson - Key Account Manager, IR | Jim Knudsen - Payments Solutions Engineer, IR Recorded: Apr 7 2016 2:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Many retailers have chosen to own and run their own payment systems. Having control of this critical infrastructure is key to their long-term success. However, the rapid acceptance of mobile and other alternative payment types means that retail payment systems are becoming increasingly complex and expensive to manage and maintain.

      The good news is that there is a wealth of transaction data coming from these systems that can be used to help manage your business. Using intuitive dashboards to display the most relevant information about system performance and transaction trends, retailers can significantly enhance their ability to prevent system problems, identify and address transaction related issues, improve customer service and have a positive impact on the bottom line.

      In this webinar, the IR team will look at how retailers are using their system and transaction data to manage their operations more effectively and make better business decisions.

      Specific areas to be explored include:
      •Preventing system outages before they happen
      •Tracking response times by BIN, Issuer, Response Code, Route, Store
      •Managing an EMV rollout, including fallbacks (by store)
      •Monitoring and managing Service Level Agreements
      •Uncovering real-time and historical transaction trends

    • Cloud UC is being rapidly adopted in the enterprise, but recent research has shown many organizations continue to be challenged with how to effectively integrate cloud in their existing UC ecosystem. The journey to the cloud is different for every organization, as is the end goal; whether your enterprise intends to keep some applications on-premises and adopt a hybrid solution or go fully cloud-based, you are tasked with constructing a roadmap that dictates which parts of your organization to migrate and when.

      - Plan, deploy, and migrate
      - Operate, troubleshoot problems, and optimize performance
      - Maximize usage and adoption by ensuring optimal user experience along the way
