Access Accurate Data for Better Reporting

Our exclusive, closed-network operating structure lets us capture enhanced data at the point-of-sale. This ensures the integrity of data from sale to report delivery.

Improve Buying Power

Accurate purchasing and spending information places you in a stronger negotiating position with suppliers. Consolidating your spend with fewer suppliers could greatly increase your ability to take advantage of discounts from existing contracts.

Gain Procurement Program Efficiencies

American Express has direct relationships not only with our Card Members and customers, but also with merchants who accept American Express. This enables us to maintain an extensive database of supplier and point-of-sale data that can help you manage your procurement program more efficiently.
