Product Updates: January 2017

     

Every year, we come up with an operating word that guides our efforts. This year the word of choice is “velocity” and our efforts will be focused on continuously answering one question on your behalf - how can we add velocity to your business?  The answer is by focusing on two parts - improving customer experience and improving merchant experience. Over the course of 2017, you can expect us to add velocity across your entire operation - whether is marketing, sales, operations or customer service.
