ISV Channel Growth
Integrated payment solutions drive a “stickier” base of merchant businesses, as backend processes become intertwined with front-end systems. Many merchant acquirers and ISOs have accelerated the pace at which they have partnered with ISVs in order to expand their software-enabled footprints especially in education, healthcare, government, and financial services. ISV residuals are expected to increase.
Restaurant Technology Landscape
This graphic details the complicated software landscape of the restaurant industry. It illustrates just a small portion of software providers that all compete for the same population of merchants, further highlighting the importance of targeted software partnerships for payment providers.
Integrated Cloud-Based POS Environment
The POS space is evolving. For example, a fully integrated POS system (smart terminal), is an entity with proprietary POS software and proprietary POS hardware that is primarily cloud based, operating on a tablet or mobile device. See what companies make up the sections of the integrated POS ‘iceberg’.
Growth of Fintech
2018 investments in U.S. based fintech companies accounted for 430 deals totaling approximately $15 billion. Most of the funds were concentrated in emerging markets such as regtech, blockchain, financial services, and AI. Most financial services execs believe that part of their business is at risk of being lost to stand-alone fintech companies.
