Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pa.: June 5, 2020—Fee Navigator Inc., a leading AI-powered service provider, has partnered with The Green Sheet on an educational initiative. Designed to improve awareness and use of automation and artificial intelligence, the multimedia campaign will offer helpful tools, resources and thought-provoking content that reflects the partners’ alignment of values and desire to give back to the merchant services community, according to the companies.
“The Green Sheet was one of the earliest media companies that realized the power of the innovation we are bringing to the payments industry,” said Adrian Talapan, co-founder and CEO of Fee Navigator. “As our solution was taking shape, they had a front-row seat watching it come together, and working with Kate, Danni and Dale has been nothing but a breath of fresh air.”
“We’ve enjoyed sharing Fee Navigator’s pipeline of innovations with our readers,” added Kate Gillespie, CEO of The Green Sheet. “We look forward to working together to help processors, acquirers, merchant level salespeople and third-party service providers leverage Fee Navigator’s platform to improve profitability and accelerate growth.”
Gillespie further noted that The Green Sheet has been empowering and connecting companies and individuals in the payments sphere for more than 30 years. As a lean organization and digital-first company, we understand our partners and celebrate their thought leadership and success, she stated.
“As entrepreneurs and marketers, we understand your journey and where you need to go,” Gillespie said. “We’re excited to share new approaches to leveraging AI and automating mundane tasks to free up more time for high-value activities.”
“We are living in an exciting time where AI can begin to support the tedious functions of work that many people don't enjoy and find monotonous,” Talapan added. “With Fee Navigator’s AI at your side, helping you build the foundations to attract and retain merchants, you can spend more time building your business, proliferating your brand and nurturing relationships.”
Talapan and co-founder Ion Craciun, a former financial forensics investigator, joined forces to build trust and improve efficiencies in the merchant payments industry. Their solutions use leading-edge technology, machine learning and AI to provide instant statement analysis and data-driven insights.
“In today's fast-moving marketplace, no one can afford to take a few days to analyze a statement,” Craciun said, adding that instant analysis saves time and money and enables subscribers to close deals on the spot. Seconds after submitting a statement, ISOs and MLSs receive a detailed one-page spreadsheet they can customize with their proposed pricing, he added.
AI technology is entering many industries in ways you might not expect, Talapan noted. Some of the processes performed by fictional AI’s are already here, helping humans make difficult processes simpler and faster. Let’s take a look at how AI technology is quietly enhancing the world we live in, and how each of these technologies will shape the future of merchant services.
Noting that Fee Navigator and The Green Sheet share the same goal of spreading innovation and growth throughout the payments industry, Talapan said he is looking forward to working with companies and individuals across the payments value chain, to drive third-party neutrality, efficiency and transparency.
