Why should you attend?

Standing authorizations, subsequent authorizations, oral authorizations, what options are there to a request for authorization are all a part of this new rule update to simplify the user experience with ACH.

With modern technologies, newer methods and channels make use of verbal interactions and voice-related technologies can change the user experience with the ACH network.
