This video is part of the iA Think Differently series. Written by or recorded with members of the iA Innovation Council, the series showcases thought leadership in analytics, communications, payments, and compliance technology for the accounts receivable management industry.
Today I'm talking with Ed Bills, Chief Operating Officer of PDC Flow, an API-driven technology platform that facilitates electronic payments, signatures, and document delivery. Their focus is to push transactions to be completed by the consumer versus an agent taking information over the phone and typing it into the system. The idea is to create the most convenient experience possible for consumers and to remove as much risk as possible of errors or privacy violations from clients. This issue has been brought front and center by the need to have agents working from home for the last several months, and the desire to have agents at home in the future.
[Editor's note: If you are interested in topics like strategy, testing and scenario planning, you should not miss insideARM's next conference, iA Strategy & Tech - a completely virtual event - July 21-23. It's a masterclass in collections strategy.]
The iA Innovation Council is a collaborative working group of product, tech, strategy, and operations thought leaders at the forefront of analytics, communications, payments, and compliance technology. Group members meet in person (and lately, virtually) several times each year to engage in substantive dialogue and whiteboard sessions with the creative thinkers behind the latest innovations for the industry, the regulators who audit and establish guardrails for new technology, and educators, entrepreneurs and innovators from outside the industry who inspire different thinking.
