Yesterday, Mastercard unveiled two new clients for its Mastercard Track Business Payment Service. The New York-based payments giant announced that BMO and Moneris Solutions Corporation have joined Mastercard Track.
Mastercard launched the new service for Canadian businesses earlier this year. Mastercard Track creates efficiencies for business users by simplifying and automating the exchange of payments data between buyers and suppliers. The service seeks to modernize the $135 trillion B2B payments market.
“Current business payment processes often require manual reconciliation work that can be very labour intensive,” said Sasha Krstic, President of Mastercard in Canada. “The availability of Mastercard Track through our new partnerships with BMO and Moneris will help Canadian businesses gain freedom from an inefficient process by simplifying and automating the exchange of payments to make B2B payments work harder, faster and smarter.”
Using Mastercard Track will help BMO and Moneris modernize the business payments process for their customers. Ultimately, the service will free up working capital for businesses by offering them more control of their payments and helping them to optimize cash flow management.
Derek Vernon, Head of Payments Modernization of BMO’s North American Commercial Deposits and Corporate Card division said that the service “enhances the digital experience by offering a universal solution to simplify and automate B2B payments.” Specifically, Vernon noted that Mastercard Track will help reduce supplier friction and facilitate quicker speed-to-spend.
Mastercard is a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker MA. It has a market capitalization of $364 billion. Michael Miebach took the helm of the company as CEO in January of last year.
