The payments landscape continues to become more digital and data-driven. Emerging technologies such as blockchain, tokenization and machine learning are accelerating that rate of change in the industry. As a result, companies of all sizes are challenging senior finance leaders to help them navigate the transformation.

WEX partnered with Zogby Analytics in May 2017 to survey 500 CFOs nationwide on their views about the current payment processing landscape and disruptive technologies entering the B2B payment space. Findings from this report provide insights on the state of the industry and identify business needs as companies figure out how new technologies will help them become more competitive in the market.
