TRAVEL MANAGEMENT COMPANIES

Virtual Cards are revolutionising the whole process of payment within business travel. They remove pre-digital processes that have slowed the industry down and in doing so save agencies and their clients both time and money. Below are some of the benefits that make Virtual Cards the natural choice for travel companies:

1. PICK A BANK ... ANY BANK

Conferma is the only Virtual Cards technology partner that is truly bank agnostic. We work with all of the major card issuing companies and over 20 banks globally. This gives corporate travel agencies the flexibility to work with their customers to deliver a Virtual Cards payment solution that works for them.

2. GDS's GALORE

Conferma Virtual Cards seamlessly integrate into major Global Distribution Systems (GDSs) such as Sabre, Amadeus or Travelport without you having to change your booking or procurement process.

3. FIELDS AND FIELDS OF DATA

Whenever a specific Virtual Cards is created, bespoke data can be collected along with it, to further enhance your clients’ reconciliation and payment experience. Job numbers, client codes, employee codes, phase numbers, and in fact any field that your company or your client want to add can be added into the Conferma system. Our systems save both time and money on traditional methods, as they fundamentally eliminate the risk of human error, meaning data matching is virtually 100%.

4. INTEGRATION

One connection to Conferma allows you to generate Virtual Cards within your normal booking workflow and with a choice of multiple banking partners. You can either access Conferma Virtual Cards via our payment API, our online portal WebPay or your proprietary booking system. 

5. GOODBYE 'LODGE' CARD, HELLO COMPLIANCE

'Lodge' cards have been a necessary part of corporate travel payment for a long time, however they are open to abuse and cause compliance issues. With Conferma powered Virtual Cards, there is no longer a need for a 'Lodge' card,  which takes away exposure for the agency and its clients.

6. AN END TO 'HOTEL BILL-BACK'

Conferma's automated Virtual Cards remove the need for the hotel bill-back process involving physical invoicing. As well as being time consuming, this is extremely inefficient and can often lead to higher charges.
