Paytron selects Thredd as its Global Issuer Processor
By Delisha Fernandes
Thredd, a next-generation payments platform, has been selected by Paytron, a full-suite workflow and spend management platform, as their global issuer processing technology partner.
By leveraging Thredd’s issuer processing technology, Paytron can empower its customers to effortlessly issue virtual cards to employees across the globe as part of its newly launched employee expense management tool.
“Paytron’s smart payments technology revolutionises the way accountants and finance teams of international businesses manoeuvre the complex web of payment information across multiple jurisdictions,” said Damien Gough, Head of Asia-Pacific at Thredd.
Gough added: “They are an incredibly exciting business, and we are thrilled they selected Thredd to power their international expansion. We look forward to collaborating with Jaco, Francois, and the team as they grow in Asia-Pacific, and enter new markets, including the UK, mainland Europe, and North America.”
This payment card offering will enable rapid expense reimbursements via Paytron’s centralized expense management platform, further transforming the expense management process from a lengthy paper-based exercise to an entirely digital process.
Employees using the Paytron solution seamlessly upload their expenses to Paytron’s centralised platform triggering notification of the designated expense approver followed by payment via virtual card within 24 hours. This process not only eliminates the financial inconvenience faced by employees awaiting reimbursements but also enhances the ability of SMEs to streamline expense forecasting and avoid international currency logistics and challenges.
Jaco Veldsman, Paytron CEO, said, “We are an ambitious company and wanted an issuer processing partner who understands the needs of fast-moving scale-ups, who has a similar entrepreneurial culture and has the international reach we need to be able to accelerate the launch of our platform worldwide.”
“Thredd sits at the heart of the next-gen global ecosystem processing transactions across 44 countries and counting. This, alongside their powerful next-gen modern payments tech stack, recently enhanced with world-class fraud prevention technology, made them the perfect choice for us.”
