Companies are just now starting to figure out remote work

As we move deeper into the pandemic, companies are realizing that the remote work habits that are de facto today will likely persist to become a major part of the way they work in the post-COVID world.

The panel, moderated by Fast Company technology editor Harry McCracken, included Box CEO Aaron Levie, Visible CEO Miguel Quiroga, Threshold Ventures partner Heidi Roizen, Infoblox CEO Jesper Andersen, Pfizer chief digital and technology officer Lidia Fonseca, Emerald One CEO Laverne Council, and Vince Campisi of Raytheon Technologies.

Best Small Business Credit Card Processing Companies 2020

Credit card processing is an integral part of selling goods and services that allows businesses to complete credit and debit card transactions. Businesses of all sizes rely on payment processing services as a quarterback for expediting card transactions. Processors verify, accept, or decline transactions, securely transmit data, and transfer payments to a merchant account—all in seconds. Running a cash-only business limits merchants from paying the way consumers prefer.

There’s no one-size-fits-all credit card processor because what a business needs in a service depends on in-store/e-commerce capabilities and sales volume. We’ve rated the best credit card processing companies for small businesses: Payment Depot, Fattmerchant, Helcim, Square, and Dharma Merchant Services.
