Velo & Mastercard to Transform Business Payments
Whilst within the capital markets settlement has well proven settlement platforms, in the B2B market there is a big possibility of innovation. This release covers one such announcement, I expect there will be more from other established players.
Velo and Mastercard today announced a partnership to modernize the $125 Trillion global business payments market. The agreement will see Velo operate as both a Buyer and Supplier Agent for Mastercard’s Track Business Payment Service. Track was built to simplify and automate the exchange of payments-related data between the world’s Buyers and Suppliers - one of the first open loop commercial solutions to do so.
Velo’s flexible, portable, global payments platform will make adoption of the Track services fast and easy. Velo’s Buyers will be able to optimize incentives, spend less time on accounts payable and reduce fraud, while Suppliers will benefit from greater control, efficiency and flexibility. Velo is integrating into the Track ecosystem to enable both bank account and card payments. Track makes it easier for Velo to deliver on its mission to help businesses pay and get paid. Velo will offer Track capabilities by default to all its direct and wholesale clients providing instant scale and flexibility.
“Mastercard Track helps supplier and buyer partners tackle the systemic challenges of business-to-business payments” says James Anderson, Executive Vice President, Commercial Products at Mastercard. “Velo and Mastercard’s partnership positions both companies to vastly improve the way businesses conduct trade at scale.”
Velo’s easily adopted technology, which integrates seamlessly with existing legacy interfaces, helps large corporations optimize their treasury management and helps businesses of all sizes manage their payments with ease and reliability. The Velo team has vast experience in highly secure, reliable, high performance payments industry platform services.
Drew Weinstein, CEO of Velo Payments says “The business payments ecosystem has, up until now, failed to keep up with the advances in global trade and technology. Businesses are starting to embrace the data-driven payments modernization that is needed to reduce cost, complexity and time for domestic and cross-border transactions. With that, Velo’s technology is a perfect complement to Mastercard Track. By working with Mastercard, Velo is looking forward to reshaping global payments and driving world commerce into the future.”
Velo believes the world needs a more effective and transparent payments ecosystem that puts users in full control of their money and data to ensure transactional integrity and to generate operational efficiencies. Velo’s enterprise-grade, configurable software provides the security, scalability and compliance that the largest businesses require.
Velo’s relentless focus on customer experience and data integrity, coupled with proprietary internet and mobile technologies, is enabling the full digitalization and optimization of commercial payments management for large corporations and financial institutions.
Velo makes it easy for businesses to pay and get paid. It solves the problems that are plaguing business payments and breaks the inertia that has defined the sector for over four decades. It is the modern payment service for banks, payment facilitators and payors. Velo is the first all-in-one platform to provide trusted, global business payments, all the way to the last mile. Velo’s technology allows payors complete control over how they manage their business payments, cash and treasury operations. Velo offers scalable enterprise-grade solutions for payment management with the utmost transparency, reliability and security. Velo optimizes and drives significant savings as its solutions are easily integrated into existing legacy systems such as those found in large banks and enterprises.
