Corporate Purchase Card

Allows businesses to streamline their purchasing process. The traditional process of purchasing goods or services can be time-consuming and expensive for many to manage.

Streamline Processing with Purchase Cards

A Purchase Card program helps businesses manage and control their accounts payable spend while reducing administrative costs. Using Purchase Cards provides access to business expenses through standard and custom reporting, as well as real-time controls all through a centralized online platform. It makes it simple for employees to pay their business expenses and for employers to track travel, entertainment, supplies and other costs.

What is a P-Card?

Purchase cards—also known as Purchase Cards or procurement cards —provide businesses with significant opportunities to streamline processing and improve working capital. By replacing paper invoices and manual systems, Purchase Cards help businesses cut operating costs, automate expense reconciliation processes and provide valuable insights on spend patterns. In addition, risk controls are enhanced and quicker payments improve supplier relations and help businesses earn valuable rebates and discounts.
