Earthport, the global payments utility is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative global payments service for IBM's Global Expense Reporting Solution (GERS) offering.
The new global payments service, utilising Earthport's technology and Universal Payments Network, will extend the existing IBM GERS solution to include the final settlement of employees individual expense reports. It will be marketed to new and existing IBM GERS clients.
