Chargeback management software
Chargeback management software is a solution meant to reduce the possibility of transaction fraud. An increase in online transactions and payment-related fraud are expected to continually fuel the market growth in coming years.

Financial wellness benefits are booming in popularity. The U.S. financial wellness benefits sector alone is expected to reach a value of $964.69 million by 2027, and a recent study discovered that approximately 93% of employees want their employers to offer financial wellness services which include things like financial planning, financial advisor access, and more.

The digital lending market is expected to grow from $10.7 billion in 2021 to $20.5 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 13.8%. The rapid growth of digital lending is partially due to the emergence of alternative lending. Although the pandemic initially suppressed digital lending growth opportunities, the industry has excelled and is expecting to see continued expansion.

A Gartner study showed that B2B customer stakeholders involved in the purchasing process for complex solutions spent only 17% of their total buying time interacting directly with sales teams, spending far more time (27%) researching buying decisions online. With buyers spending the vast majority of their time outside traditional (or should we say *vintage*) sales interactions, linear marketing to sales processes just aren’t holding up. Check out this article from Harvard Business Review for more on how buyers make decisions now and why your clients may need to re-think their sales and marketing processes.

Two weeks ago our team gathered for the FSM Summit, our annual in-person employee retreat. We had a great week of rest, relaxation, and connection with our (otherwise fully remote) team. We’ve grown so much over the past few years that it’s getting harder to fit us all in one picture! Thank you for trusting us with your clients – we look forward to growing with you for many years to come!
