As I discussed in my last post, in the 1980s when Roger Smith was CEO of General Motors and it was the largest industrial enterprise in the world, he made decisions so disastrous they contributed directly to the firm’s bankruptcy and will be studied in business schools for years to come.
At the beginning of 2015 there are more important new developments in the payments industry than at any time since the inception of Electronic Ticket Capture. It’s boiling over with venture capital. A lot of money has been invested, and lot more waits on the sidelines to be deployed for the Next Big Thing.
Your customers are confused, but you can’t be, so when wondering how you should spend your time and how you will bring value to your merchants, we can learn a lot from what happened to General Motors.

Since an ISO’s goal is to maximize revenue, it’s in his or her best interest to have check services in his portfolio. But choosing the appropriate provider encompasses many factors: Company reputation, system reliability and compatibility, and ongoing support. Often times, a Retail Systems Support (RSS) department is an ISO’s point of contact at a check service provider. The RSS team works very closely with ISOs and merchants alike, recommending specific service types, setting up equipment in-store, and troubleshooting technical issues that may arise.

It is difficult to find a bank to process ACH transactions for ISOs, and here we’ll explore why.
Time is money, right? So I’m not going to beat around the bush. If you are smart enough to be selling check services, having a couple of precise, formulated qualifying questions in your arsenal is a huge asset. These two, simple questions will open the door to a conversation and can become an opportunity to provide a solution that will help your merchants be more profitable. And when they win, you win. So are you ready for the top two questions?
