Bonita Springs, FL – As recently published by BTNGroup, market demand is soaring for corporate T&E payment solutions that offer usability, security and data control, and virtual card and mobile technologies are leading the way. CSI globalVCard is ready to meet that demand with its travel payment solution, with the help of travel management company (TMC) partners like Adelman Travel.
“Like CSI, Adelman is agile and always on the lookout for more effective ways to solve problems, attuned to the market and completely dedicated to their customers’ success – both through exceptional support and innovative technology,” said Juliann Pless, CSI’s VP of Travel and Mobile Solutions. “Adelman has proven to be an invaluable partner to us as we refined our corporate travel solution through our initial beta.”
CSI’s globalVCard Travel solution is directly integrated with Adelman’s booking system, enabling its corporate client base to pay for approved travel reservations including air, hotel and car rentals via secure, single-use virtual credit card numbers.
“The integration between CSI and Adelman allows our clients to leverage the safety of virtual cards on all transactions, not just lodging,” said Ivan Imana, Adelman Travel’s CIO. “With real-time information and validation of services comes a robust exchange of data, allowing our clients to properly distribute costs internally and bill back their clients if applicable. Additionally, the automation is not dependent on a particular reservation method, therefore our clients’ online booking tool usage is not affected; they can still maintain high adoption rates and touch-less transaction levels.”
One of the key differentiators of globalVCard Travel is the ability to leverage virtual card and mobile technologies to overcome the hotel direct billing challenges that have frustrated corporate travel managers. With globalVCard, the virtual credit card authorization form is automatically faxed to the hotel several times prior to arrival. If the fax cannot be located upon check-in, the traveler has the ability to manually re-fax the authorization right from their mobile phone.
“There is such a tremendous need in the marketplace for corporate travel payments that promote compliance, security, and the ability to overcome the hotel direct billing challenge,” said Pless. “This is an exciting time for CSI globalVCard and we look forward to equipping travel management companies with our virtual card payment system, which will allow them to operate more efficiently and deliver better service to their clients.”
