TSYS announced that Sarah Hartman, senior director of Payment Solutions for TSYS, and Patricia Hewitt, director of Mercator Advisory Group’s Debit Advisory Service, will present at the upcoming ATM, Debit & Prepaid Forum on Friday, November 4th as part of the Debit Track.
The session, “How Consumers Pay and How That May Change in the Future,” will provide information and engage the audience for feedback on the results of the TSYS-commissioned “2011 Consumer Debit Research Study” conducted by Mercator. The two-part research study included an online survey and a series of in-person focus groups on how consumers currently pay for a variety of transactions, why they use one payment form over another, and how those behaviors and preferences might change depending upon the cost and availability of various payment choices. Session participants will receive a copy of the study, as well as hear ideas on how to leverage the research findings. The research will also be available at TSYS’ booth at the event or by registering for the research at www.tsys.com/debit.
The 19th annual ATM, Debit & Prepaid Forum will be held Nov. 1-4, 2011 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and will feature a program designed to provide actionable information on ATMs, debit cards, prepaid cards, mobile payments and regulation.
