Mercator Advisory Group has released a 28 page report with a whopping price tag of $2,450 on purchasing cards, integrated procurement solutions, the commercial card market capturing supporting solutions such as Electronic Invoice Presentment and Payment (EIPP). According to the press release, the highlights of this report include:
- The field for purchasing card issuing has changed in the last decade to better accommodate end-user enterprises’ technological and operational needs.
- Recent acquisitions and investments by major issuers have brought enhanced solutions technology in-house as an added value to current and prospective customers.
- The impending launch of the federal General Services Administration’s SmartPay®2 charge card program will contribute to further product innovation.
