Almost three quarters (70%) of survey respondents rely on commercial payment cards to reduce processing and administrative costs; two-thirds look to eliminate paper-based invoicing; 57% want to facilitate receivables and payments; and just under half (46%) believe that commercial cards provide transaction data for better vendor pricing negotiation. Companies also use commercial card programmes to increase visibility into cash positions and improve forecasting. The survey also showed that 74% of respondents are satisfied with their commercial payment card programmes. Currently, 50% of respondents use commercial payment cards to make payments as part of their overall cash management strategies. The US leads adoption with 58% of respondents use commercial payment cards; Canada follows closely behind at 54%.
