In compiling its list of “Top 10 Retail Payment Consulting/Services Companies – 2018,” Retail CIO Outlook assembled a distinguished selection panel consisting of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and its own editorial board, which then selected 10 outstanding payment services/consulting companies that exhibit innovative capabilities and strategies. In choosing its finalists, Retail CIO Outlook’s selection panel considered each vendor’s ability to deliver solutions and services that effectively yet economically account for a productive payment service offering, also considering the factor of time-focused delivery.
