May 13, 2013

Zoot, a global provider of advanced payment risk management solutions, will present competitive strategies for merchant onboarding and risk monitoring at the Merchant Acquirers’ Committee (MAC) 2013 Conference, Controlling the Tidal Wave of Fraud.

Eric Lindeen, marketing director, Zoot Enterprises will discuss the most effective onboarding techniques for merchant acquirers today. Lindeen will give insight to new techniques being implemented to provide a radically easier application process for merchants including, allowing merchants to open accounts in realtime and using alternative data to manage fraud and risk more effectively. The conversation will focus on how large merchant acquirers are squeezing the middle market, leaving those acquirers with fewer growth opportunities.

“As the major players in merchant acquisition improve their service and focus on frictionless interactions, the middle market players need to improve their performance to compete. While personal service was once a sufficient differentiator, the combination of speed, scale, and frictionless interactions are becoming difficult to beat,” says Lindeen (@EricLindeen).

The presentation titled “The Titanic Shift in Merchant Expectations” will take place on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 from 4:45-5:15pm. Zoot executives will be available to discuss effective merchant onboarding and risk monitoring strategies at their exhibition booth during the MAC conference, May 14-16, 2013 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
