TSYS (NYSE: TSS) today announced the publication of a white paper entitled “ Lessons Learned from Business Travel Study: Best Practices for Getting Ahead of the Mobile Wave.” The report is based on the findings of The Connected Business Traveler Study, an innovative survey of business travelers conducted jointly by TSYS, Mercator Advisory Group and Commercial Payments International (CPI). The report combines the survey’s findings with analysis of how the evolution of mobile banking and payments for consumers signals an opportunity for greater mobile solutions and innovations geared toward commercial card customers. One conclusion from the paper is that mobile connectivity and communications can be leveraged to digitize the paperless shift that will benefit businesses and corporate credit card-carrying employees, just as they have by consumer cardholders. “By concentrating on the end-user experience, issuers will be uniquely positioned to help their corporate clients create a circle of employee engagement with the card program,” said Keith Pierce, group executive of Commercial Services, TSYS. “Moreover, it could provide more user data to businesses and issuers, leading to better expense controls, employee satisfaction and productivity.” The white paper is available for download, at: www.tsys.com/connectedbusinesstraveler.
