May 23, 2016

Commercial virtual account solution reduces fraud-related costs and encourages commercial card usage

COLUMBUS, Ga., May 23, 2016 — TSYS (NYSE: TSS), the leading processor of commercial card payments, today announced the launch of a new commercial payment solution that will streamline business-to-business (B2B) virtual payments and further enhance the ePayables process flow. TSYS Virtual Payment PreceptSM (VPP) is an innovative new solution that reduces risk, improves operational efficiency and greatly increases control over accounts payable and accounts receivable payments and reconciliation. VPP leverages existing TSYS technology with an improved processing design to deliver secure, virtual single-use accounts in real time with enhanced control over account and transactional base parameters.

According to a recent report from the Association for Financial Professionals, nearly 80 percent of companies are transitioning to electronic payments for B2B transactions1.

"With increasing demand, it is vital to have the most secure and cost efficient process in place to facilitate these transactions," said Scot Yarbrough, group executive of commercial services, TSYS. "We have anticipated this need and delivered a solution that enables our issuing clients to offer cutting edge technology to their corporate customers. This new solution will provide the proper scalability for the aggressive growth projected in this market while leveraging TSYS' proven security and reliability."

TSYS VPP offers unparalleled authorization and decision controls for buying organizations. For issuers, this can drive portfolio growth, reduce fraud and increase revenue in the B2B space.

This product is currently available to commercial card issuers across North America.
