This edition of the TCS BaNCS Research Journal focuses on exploring the many ways in which the payments industry is going through disruption, democratization, and reimagination. A large-scale disruption is taking place in the payments ecosystem. The way we give and receive money has changed. Cash is no longer the king – digital payments rule.
Tapping into the potential of this new digital payments paradigm are a number of payments solution providers who partner with retailers to enable customers pay with ease. By adopting innovative strategies in payments and collaborating with alternative payments solutions providers, banks can stay ahead of the competition.
