The new mobile virtual card solution addresses the growing demand for digital, contactless commercial payments, which has been amplified by the changing nature of work and business expenses during the pandemic, and the rise of the work-from-home economy. Businesses can use this solution to issue a single or multi-use virtual card to employees, enabling them to fund and manage authorized purchases. TSYS generates the virtual card number, which is accessed in the Extend app and then seamlessly loaded into a mobile wallet.
"This solution provides a more secure, reliable product that will help financial institutions and businesses streamline B2B payments by increasing their flexibility to pre-approve and manage transactions on a much more granular level than before," said Gaylon Jowers, president, TSYS Issuer Solutions and senior executive vice president, Global Payments. "From new employee onboarding to last minute or first-time travels, our unique ability to tokenize the virtual account number, combined with the technology and innovation of Extend and Mastercard, opens up a multitude of new use cases for virtual cards in corporate payments."
