What you can expect from the American Express Corporate Card

Comprehensive management information

We offer various solutions to allow monitoring of company spend and drive compliance with your organisation’s expense policy. These include electronic statements with attached data files, monthly management reports and weekly transaction listings.  You can use a combination of these tools to simplify your monthly reconciliation and expense claims.


Bottomline saving

Your company can benefit from direct savings by using our monthly management reports to negotiate better discounts with your existing suppliers.  In addition, you can simplify your payment processes by consolidating your business expenditure onto the American Express Card programme.  This will, in turn, drive efficiencies and cost savings in your business.
