B2B payments and what the GEP – Mastercard partnership entails

Per the announcement information, GEP will embed Mastercard’s virtual card platform, which is connected to over 80 banks worldwide, into its procure-to-pay (P2P) ePayables solution to enable medium and large-scale enterprises to manage all B2B spending within the technology platforms they currently use. The integration helps simplify account payables processes for both sides of B2B transactions, reducing long-tail spend problems caused by managing thousands of suppliers and invoices.

Through the embedded virtual card experience, GEP clients are to benefit from easier invoice reconciliation, together with improved efficiency and accuracy. Bettering the ability to facilitate early payments and enhance visibility to improve cash flow provides large and mid-sized clients with multiple key advantages, including:

  • Better cash flow for suppliers;
