Lockbox: Back to the Future (I)

Session Description

Lockbox is thought of as a dying product. This is far from the truth. The capabilities of lockboxes have evolved in the last 20 years, and considerably over the last five. This session intends to inform attendees as to how lockbox capabilities have been transformed, the impact of electronic payments to lockbox processing, how lockbox clients in different verticals can optimize the usage of their lockbox, and how to ensure lockbox users are using the right provider.
