Leading automated travel and entertainment expense management software provider, Certify, today announced the formation of a new integration collaboration with Western Union.
The aim of the relationship is to provide mass international business payment capabilities for Certify’s expense and invoice customers with operations outside the United States.
Leveraging Western Union’s unique global payments network and unparalleled success managing distributed financial transactions, Certify can now offer mutual customers the ability to directly remit employee expense reimbursements and vendor payments directly to employees’ bank accounts in a range of currencies for both domestic and international transactions.
The new service, called Certify Payments, is powered by the Western Union® Mass Payments API (Application Programming Interface), capable of processing electronic direct to bank payments in 45 currencies. Currently available for all mutual Certify-Western Union customers, the integration with Western Union allows for seamless processing of each currency in accordance with the specifications of each country’s unique clearing system, including settlement times and other factors.
Certify Inc., the operating company behind expense solutions brands Certify, Nexonia and Tallie, now serves a growing customer base of 10,000 companies in more than 90 countries from its US and Canadian offices. Furthering its position as a global solutions provider, Certify also expanded its relationship with UK-based Sage Software in 2017 to provide enhanced product integrations and services to its shared customers for innovative ERP and accounting solutions. Certify recognized its evolving partnership with the software giant, joining the Sage Summit UK in London last April as a premier sponsor.
“Working with a respected leader like Western Union is the next leap forward for Certify as a worldwide provider of premier automated business expense and payment management solutions,” said Robert Neveu, CEO, Certify. “As our customer base and company operations expand globally, Certify is especially proud to be working with Western Union to deliver the confidence and peace of mind that these complex and important transactions will always be handled accurately and efficiently.”
Western Union, Global Head of Payments GTM, Jacqueline Keogh said, “We are delighted to unveil the relationship with Certify to help boost Certify’s firepower. Working with businesses of all sizes is an important strategy for Western Union to help serve the customer more effectively. This collaboration will help strengthen both Western Union and Certify’s position in the cross border, cross currency money movement industry.”
