The Chicago Payments Information Exchange (CPIX) is live on the Built in Chicago. The group’s purpose is to build on Chicago’s history of innovation in payments and create greater visibility for this financial technology market.

In addition to providing a good overview of treasury management and payments in 2010, they are also good examples of my financial writing–the kind of solid content companies can use in bylines articles, white papers, blogs, and like.

Built in Chicago is fast-growing community that serves as a “resource for “digital professionals” working to build great web and mobile businesses and mind blowing user experiences. ” For details, read this interview with founder Matt Moog: (links to Crain’s Chicago Business’ Enterprise City blog).

CPIX is moderated by long-time payments, banking, and payments writer and communications consultant Collin Canright. The group is intended to build a network of financial institutions, payments processors, software firms, and consultants will strengthen this niche in Chicago’s technology community through collaborative communication and help propel its future success.
