The partnership will enable virtual cards generated by Conferma to be issued through Pliant’s app, increasing access to such cards for travel management companies and online travel agents throughout Europe.

By targeting key partners in leisure and business travel, Pliant merges the security of traditional banking with the advanced technology of FinTech. As a result, users are onboarded and approved at industry-leading rates.

The partnership adds Pliant to Conferma’s global issuing network, which provides online travel agents with a choice of virtual card issuers. Within its global ecosystem, businesses have access to all major card networks, over 150 connected booking platforms, and over 80 card issuers.

Pliant is an incredibly exciting company, driving corporate card payments forward with innovative tech solutions that make payments simpler. This partnership builds on the existing investment into our platform that allows us to connect more businesses to enable commerce.”
