Webinar: Why Banks Fail to Seize the Opportunity in Small Business Payments

BOSTON, Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MineralTree, Inc., maker of the cloud-based, secure payments solution specifically designed for small and medium businesses (SMBs), will host a webinar with Treasury Strategies, Inc. that explores the dynamics and challenges of the SMB payments space, and how banks can seize upon a growing opportunity.

A recent study by MineralTree and Treasury Strategies canvassed the perspectives of more than 60 financial institutions. Results of the study suggest a "small business gap" - an absence of SMB specific banking solutions between retail and commercial offerings. The majority of banks surveyed (72 percent) see the SMB segment as representing a "very significant" or "good" opportunity to improve services and grow revenues. However, most respondents either lacked organizational responsibility for this segment or had divided responsibilities across multiple groups within the bank.

Join Chrystal Pozin, Managing Director at Treasury Strategies and BC Krishna, MineralTree founder and CEO as they discuss the survey findings and recommendations in more detail.
