A Note from Jeff Felser

Welcome to the latest edition of Payment Solutions News. In this issue, you'll discover how PNC's Payables Advantage can help optimize and simplify your payment process. Plus you'll learn how a leading packaging company put Payables Advantage into action to streamline their payment disbursement process.

We also want to highlight our annual User Group, which was held last month in Chicago. Clients enjoyed presentations on topics such as Visa's Payment Fraud Prevention initiative, and shared experiences and insights with each other. The event culminated with an inspiring keynote address by legendary coach Mike Ditka.

We appreciate your business.
