Small businesses drive almost 50 percent of US private-sector employment1 and contend with many of the same issues as big businesses, with far fewer resources. Operating in competitive markets with razor thin margins, many are struggling with a host of financial tasks, including managing cash-flow, collecting accounts receivables, forecasting future funds. Paying taxes represents a whole other ball of wax.
It’s not unusual for small businesses to rely on QuickBooks, Excel, or even paper-based approaches for managing business finances, but these businesses are desperate for more help. Due to gaps in bank solution portfolios, non-banking technology providers are answering the call with services like online and mobile payments, electronic invoicing and payments, cash flow forecasting, and account aggregation. To protect themselves from the threat of disintermediation, banks must evolve their product offerings and re-establish their trusted advisor status.
