ATLANTA — LexisNexis® Risk Solutions and Capgemini Invent released findings from their inaugural LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Corporate Digital Payments Study. The organizations jointly conducted global market research on corporate account-to-account (A2A) payments with three objectives:
The LexisNexis Risk Solutions Corporate Digital Payments Study covers the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions. Findings are mostly based on insights from a survey of 400 payment managers, focus interviews with payment executives of large and multinational corporations, and insights from knowledgeable subject matter experts from LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Capgemini Invent who provided views on the market.
Digital acceleration continues to fuel the rapid adoption of digital corporate payments. Corporate non-cash payments represented around 133 billion transactions in 2021, totaling 13% of all non-cash payments. A2A payment solutions are the preferred choice for corporate payments processing with more than 50% of both accounts payables and accounts receivables handled via A2A solutions globally and 40% of corporate payments processed fully automatically. As such, annual corporate non-cash payments are predicted to reach the 200 billion transactions mark by 2025.
“Payment operations leaders are increasingly taking more strategic seats at their organizations. They are transitioning their departments from being cost centers to becoming key creators of customer value. They are achieving this by adopting payment automation technology,” said Andrew Burlison, head of payments, LexisNexis Risk Solutions. “The increased level of automation is enabling payment managers to focus more on payment strategy and business development. Defining a payment strategy, improving business performance and optimizing costs are priorities that come before payment execution. Leveraging third-party capabilities is key to accelerate the development of state-of-the-art payments operations and optimize solution investment.”
Key Findings from the LexisNexis Risk Solutions Corporate Digital Payments Study:
“While corporations have historically been searching primarily for simplicity and cost efficiency, they are now looking at more advanced and valued-added payment solutions, fostered by the rapid development of new technologies and the necessity to go fully digital during the pandemic,” said Thierry Morin, director, payments and financial services at Capgemini Invent. “Best-in-class corporations are already fully embracing new digital payment ecosystems leveraging cloud payment platforms, real-time data management and end-to-end integration, increasing the gap with the rest of the market. In that context, the race is on in 2022 for payment executives to prioritize the right investments and set up a forward-looking payments platform, addressing the on-going market developments and evolving vendor/client expectations.”
