7 good reasons to sort your payment solutions today

Whether you’re looking to improve your processes for collecting payments or paying invoices – or indeed both – it needn’t be a lengthy process, as we can help you get up and running in a matter of weeks. Here are 7 good reasons why you should take the first steps towards streamlining your payment solutions today:

  1. Embedding payment cards with your top suppliers will reduce 1000s of invoices into just one – your monthly card statement – making it much easier for your finance team to process
  2. Customers have typically reduced the number of invoices they receive by as much as 45%
  3. Using payments cards can save you at least £5 per transaction compared to traditional purchasing methods
  4. You will be able to pay about 20% more invoices on time. This will help you achieve your prompt payment targets, as suppliers are guaranteed to be paid within 3 working days
  5. Switching your ePayment card provider could save you between £28 and £45 per card on annual card fees
  6. Receive annual rebates based on your card spend. In the past 2 years rebates to customers totalled over £10 million
  7. Reduced fuel card fees and charges have helped save over £1.3 million for UK police forces and £900,000 for the UK ambulance service
