American Express Corporate Cards allow companies to consolidate all of their payments under one central expense solution. Switch cheques, paper invoices and personal cards for a Corporate Card Programme that makes paying suppliers hassle-free.
Equip your employees with Corporate Cards so they do not need to use their own cards for business expenses. This gives them peace of mind and allows you to better track your overall company spend in one place.
Improve Cash Flow?
Cash flow is a common concern facing businesses – large and small – all over the world. A lack of free-flowing working capital stalls growth and development and often leads to late payments – not conducive to a positive working relationship with suppliers and even late fees.
American Express Corporate Cards offer up to 51 credit-free days on purchases, meaning you can extend your cash flow without incurring extra interest. Pay your vendors on time and enhance your relationship with them. (The number of credit-free days is calculated based on the date of the transaction, plus the 21-day interest-free period from the billing date).
An American Express Corporate Card solution can be complemented by expense management tools that allow you to gather insight and information about your overall business spending.
Use this information to negotiate better supplier rates, identify areas of overspend and put plans in place to manage them. Harness membership reward points, putting them back into the business by funding flights, retail vouchers, and travel spend.*
Cost Management and Control?
Corporate Card Programme reporting provides you with all the management information and options you need to increase the visibility of your expenses and to manage your Card programme across all expense categories. Control costs by using spend analysis reporting to inform future spend or travel policies and strategies.
How Can American Express Corporate Payment Solution Help Me With Reporting?

Making the Most of Your Corporate Card Programme
The success of any Corporate Card programme is linked to how engaged employees are with the programme. It is important to ensure Card Members are briefed on company policy for card usage, and adopt the new payment method quickly into their daily business lives – the faster they start using the solution, the faster you’ll see improvements in your expense management and reporting capabilities; ultimately saving your company time and money.
