A payment workflow health check: Gain efficiencies and bring the focus back to your customer

Manual processes are ideal for some things — such as handcrafted beer or hand-rolled sushi — but when it comes to payment workflows, manual processes are massively inefficient. Manual workflows increase the frequency of inevitable human error, which can be expensive for your business. Missed or late payments are detrimental to customer service, and a decimal point in the wrong place could be extremely costly.

Payments are a critical part of any businesses with a digital presence. The on-platform experience is a determining factor when it comes to customers' perception, so having an efficient payment workflow will not only benefit your users at the point of payment, but it will also boost how your business operates when dealing with customers. Positive customer experiences can in turn transform users into loyal brand advocates, and positive word of mouth can ultimately lead to more sales.
