Dan Ward emphasized that this increase in development speed, made possible by the seamless closing of the gap between the two, not only enables the quicker provision of features and functionality but also frees up resources for more innovative, value-added projects, reducing the need for people to spend excessive amounts of time on pointless tasks and allowing them to provide value to the agency in a variety of ways.
Finvi Payments' industry-leading solution has three essential parts: Account Updater, which checks and updates card information automatically without the customer's help; Automatic Payment Reversals, which keep Artiva RM up to date in case of payment returns; and an Advanced Payments Reconciliation Report, which speeds up the reconciliation process by showing when payments clear and how much money each client has so that employees can focus on new accounts.

Process automation and modern tools for communication and payments that focus on compliance are used to develop creative solutions based on a service- and innovation-centered approach that puts people first.
