What inspires you in the payment industry?

Challenges in tech and business process inspire me because I have a chance to learn new things and work with the most innovative solutions.

I really enjoy working with WAY4 solution because it is stable, scalable and adapts to new technology/requirement. Once I implement WAY4 solution in a bank or a processing centre, I am confident in it because of its proven track record.

Payment industry is huge market ($100 trillion ++) and being in the centre of it is exciting.

What do you think was the biggest lesson for payment industry in 2018?

Apple Card Event. We should prepare for revolution of payment industry. Contactless + tokenization + mobile app will kill payment methods based on the use of physical cards.
