PORTLAND, MAINE, February 20, 2014 – The Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM), the leading source of information tools and resources for financial professionals, has announced that ibml will be the title sponsor of the 2014 Payments Summit. Especially designed for mid- to senior-level managers and strategists involved with payment processing operations, treasury and cash management, or accounts receivable, the event will focus on managing payments in today's environment.

"IOFM is thrilled to have ibml as the Payments Summit title sponsor," said IOFM Executive Director RD Whitney. "It is increasingly important for payments professionals to learn about innovative processes and solutions so that they can understand what is working in the sector and find ways to operate more efficiently."

"The payments industry is undergoing historic change as it integrates new electronic processes with existing paper-based transactions, incorporates new payment channels, and grapples with ever-increasing requirements for security, control and tracking," said ibml Chief Marketing Officer Dan Lucarini. "Banks and billers must develop strategies for managing these challenges, and ibml is pleased to sponsor this IOFM forum on best practices and emerging technologies for managing payments in today's environment."

Exploring payments processing and clearing, including the opportunities, challenges and business drivers for emerging payments technologies and processes, will be the core objectives of the event. Through interactive panel discussions, end-user case study presentations, and visionary keynote addresses, attendees will learn best practices for remittance and lockbox processing, ACH, remote payments capture, integrated receivables, mobile payments, outsourcing and more.

Confirmed speakers represent leading organizations, including NACHA, Transactis, Transaction Directory, Johns Hopkins Health System, Garrett Consulting Group, SourceHOV, New York City Department of Finance, JPMChase, The PNC Financial Services Group, Celent, BNY Mellon Treasury Services, TransCentra, Data Dimensions, CDS Global, BancTec, ACH Alert, Creditron, Boys Town, and ibml.

One of this year's highlights is a new track dedicated to all facets of healthcare payments processing and the growing demand for technologies, processes, and tools to drive revenue cycle improvements.

Attendees will have the option to register for Accounts Receivable Training & Certification. The Accredited Receivables Manager (ARM) and Accredited Receivables Specialist (ARS) Certifications are open to all persons and departments working in the order-to-cash process.
