Sydney, 14 April 2011
Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced the global launch of Visa IntelliLink Compliance Management, a web-based solution offering enhanced control, compliance and cost-savings for businesses using commercial card programs. Visa IntelliLink Compliance Management converts commercial card transaction data into information that card program managers at government agencies and private sector enterprises can use to minimise and deter commercial card misuse, such as using cards for personal expenses. The new service gives organisations a more detailed view of commercial payment program data, complementing existing card management and issuer reporting systems for a 360 degree view of commercial payment solution activity. “Non-compliance with an organisation’s card usage policies can erode process efficiencies and cost savings, undermining the value these programs can provide,” said Visa Australia Country Manager, Vipin Kalra. “By converting raw transaction data into actionable intelligence, Visa IntelliLink Compliance Management can help organisations to better monitor their commercial card spending and discourage misuse – to ultimately derive even greater value and cost savings from their commercial card programs.” The solution offers multiple modules that can be customised for an organisation’s unique needs and work together to give program managers different views of their data. The application’s range of services includes:
A 2008 report by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners showed that fraudulent spending costs U.S. businesses $994 billion dollars each year. Commercial cards empower organisations with improved oversight and control of spend, making them a safer and more informative form of payment than paper-based methods. Visa IntelliLink Compliance Management makes commercial card programs more effective by providing a detailed level of review and reporting that gives greater insight into a card program’s performance as well as intelligence to quickly detect and discourage fraud, waste, loss and abuse. Visa IntelliLink Compliance Management is now available to Visa Commercial card issuers around the globe via Visa-branded or customizable solutions. Web-based, software-as-a-service delivery of the solution supports cost-effective implementation and allows upgrades to be completed automatically. The solution is designed to integrate seamlessly with existing card management systems to allow all users around the world to work with the same, up-to-date data.
