This week Brian Cook, Senior Vice President of Higher Education with Paymerang, attended and presented at the 21st National Cards and Payments On Campus Conference hosted by Professional Development Group in Atlantic Beach, FL. Since 1986, PDG has planned and overseen conferences that are national in scope. Each year, they host a Student Loan Receivables Collection Conference, P-Cards on Campus Conference, and The College & University Bursar Conference. The National Cards and Payments on Campus Conference is an event built by Higher Education, for Higher Education. The conference is geared towards all skill levels for card & procure-to-pay programs from beginning to advanced. The conference gave attendees the opportunity to learn how they can avoid reinventing the wheel by learning from top experts in strategic spend management from both public and private institutions from across the country.

During Brian’s time with Paymerang, he has been involved with the selection and implementation of several electronic supplier payment and P-Card programs. Brian’s various roles within Paymerang and the payments industry have allowed him to personally speak with thousands of finance professionals who have experienced varying levels of success implementing B2B ePayments for Accounts Payable and the pain points they continue to face.

His presentation at the conference, B2B Payments on Campus; Past, Present and Future,  discussed the advent of white label banking options for software and cloud based organizations to deliver funds with large amounts of customized data to suppliers. A rapid evolution is taking place which is changing the payments landscape.. Companies are implementing a more automated, simple and secure process that benefits both the payor and payee. His presentation took attendees through time from where payments have been to where payments are heading in the next few years and how their campus can benefit from leveraging these advances in secure technology.
