nies manage their spend. The Corporate Purchasing Card helps large corporations and mid-sized companies manage their everyday spending. It is used to pay for everyday goods and business expenses, such as office supplies, industrial supplies, and business equipment. The company issues local currency Corporate Purchasing Cards in approximately 25 countries. The company also offers Corporate Purchasing Cards issued through its GNS partner relationships in an additional five countries. vPayment, which offers companies single-use virtual account numbers, allows corporate clients to make payments with enhanced controls, data capture, and reconciliation capabilities. Charges are authorized for a specified amount during a designated time window. The solution automates reconciliation, eliminates manual check requests, and interfaces with a client’s enterprise resource planning, procurement, and accounts payable systems. vPayment could be used as the form of payment throughout the stages of a typical procure-to-pay process. BIP allows companies to pay merchants electronically, which gives them control over their payments, extends their own days payable outstanding (or ‘float’) and increases their cash on hand. BIP purchases by the company’s clients include hospital equipment, industrial supplies, and construction and building materials; airlines also use BIP for purchases of jet fuel. This solution is suited for mid- to large-sized companies that want to convert from paper to electronic payments and optimize cash flow. BIP is available to companies in the United States, Canada, and Australia. BIP Express, a Web-hosted version of BIP, is available in Mexico, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, and Spain, in addition to also being offered in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
