A note from Jeff Felser

Welcome to the summer edition of Payment Solutions News, your insider view into the latest payables products and services from PNC's Treasury Management group. In this issue, you'll learn about some exciting new enhancements to the PNC ActivePay® platform.

Looking for ways to streamline and improve the overall ActivePay process, PNC's Card Services Account Development team recently conducted a detailed Lean Six Sigma analysis of ActivePay. The project's findings identified specific opportunities to reduce the timeframe of a typical vendor enrollment campaign, leading to faster realization of card spend for our clients.

This ActivePay project is just the latest example of PNC's dedication to providing our clients with the best treasury management solutions possible.

PNC's Commercial Card division was recently awarded the 2011 Service Quality Performance Award for "highest domestic authorization approval rate" in Visa's commercial card segment. This award is given to issuers who achieve the highest approval rates for authorization requests while controlling risk.

Two proven ways to increase card payments among new and existing vendors:

  • Scan all incoming invoices for signs of Visa card acceptance.
  • Add language to RFP documents stipulating that vendors accept Visa card payments.

PNC seeks to speed the ActivePay enrollment process.
One of the primary goals of the improved ActivePay process is to expedite the vendor enrollment process in a measurable way. In fact, using our new approach with a Higher Education client, it took less than six months to enroll $45 Million in vendor spend out of the original $60 MM in projected spend.
