Better Ways To Pay

In putting together this issue of Commercial Insights magazine, we started with you. Our Commercial Bankers listen to your perspectives and concerns about everything from the new administration in Washington to risk management—and what you're doing to make the most of the opportunities in front of you.

In this issue, technology is a recurring theme. “IT Solutions: Should You Rent or Buy?" goes to the heart of a crucial question with financial and operational implications, while "How to Take Advantage of Mobile Business Technology" offers ideas for using smartphones to improve employee productivity and customer satisfaction. "Maintaining the Right Amount of Inventory" explores a subject that can have a major impact on your company's operations and profitability, and "Better Ways to Pay?" considers a future in which paper checks are replaced by faster and easier electronic options. Also, “What Washington's Changes Could Mean" looks at how possible regulatory, health-law and tax changes coming from Washington could affect your business.

The goal of our Commercial Bankers is to understand your business and help you find the resources you need. In fact, in recognition of their work on your behalf, we recently received 10 Greenwich Excellence Awards for small-business banking, middle-market banking and wealth management. These awards, from the management services firm Greenwich Associates, reflect your satisfaction with what our bankers do for you daily. We salute them, and hope that you'll find their insights in these pages useful for your business.
