The TPC Payables Prepaid Visa Card was recognized in the “Best Business-to-Business Prepaid Card” category. The Payments Company (TPC) facilitates electronic payments between businesses, vendors, and employees. Backed by its proprietary software and AP advantage ePay Network, TPC provides a complete accounts payable disbursement solution that includes software integration, vendor enrollment, payment processing, and reconcilement. Clients import a single file of payment instructions and AP advantage executes financial transactions and delivers associated customized electronic payment details. The company specifically targets underserved middle market clients that are unable to implement ePayments without technical resources and available credit. Using a virtual debit card solution, companies prefund their payments while earning cash rebates and moving away from costly and environmentally unfriendly paper checks.
