Traditional to Trailblazing – Revolutionizing Treasury with Card Payments

In the ever-evolving landscape of business, where every decision matters and every process counts, treasury management stands as the backbone of financial stability. It’s the heartbeat that keeps an organization pulsating with liquidity and foresight. While traditional methods have long held sway, a new dawn has broken – one that promises to transform treasury management through the untapped potential of B2B card payments.

Uncovering the Game-Changing Potential

In today’s fast-paced global economy, agility is paramount. Businesses across the GCC, and particularly in the UAE, have realized that embracing innovation is the key to thriving in this dynamic environment. Traditional treasury management practices, laden with manual processes, can hinder the fluidity that modern corporations need to navigate complex financial landscapes.

Enter card-based supplier payments, the trailblazing solution that has the power to redefine treasury management as we know it. This modern approach seamlessly integrates the power of working capital and electronic payments with the efficiency of card networks, offering a multitude of benefits that transcend the limitations of conventional methods.

A New Era in B2B Payments

The GCC region has witnessed exponential growth in its B2B payments market, with the UAE leading the charge. According to recent statistics from the UAE Central Bank, B2B payments in the UAE reached $450 billion in 2021, and are projected to reach $1.25 trillion by 2030, signifying not only raw economic growth, but the escalating need for more advanced payment solutions. The UAE’s proactive embrace of innovation has propelled it to the forefront of this transformation, where businesses are recognizing the game-changing potential of card-based supplier payments.

Consider the case of a prominent global technology giant, and their office in the UAE. Faced with the challenge of managing payments to suppliers across a sprawling MENA network, the company turned to Swipe2B’s innovative card-to-bank solution. By making the switch, they streamlined their payment processes, reduced manual errors, enjoyed 55 days of extended credit, began receiving rebates on their monthly spends and gained real-time insights into their cash flow. As a result, the company not only bolstered its treasury management practices but also elevated its supplier relationships through automated, prompt and accurate payments.

Efficiency Meets Security

One of the most compelling aspects of B2B card payments is the fusion of efficiency and security. In traditional methods, the path from purchase order to payment is often riddled with delays, discrepancies and potential for fraud. Card-based solutions counter this by digitizing the entire process, from authorization to settlement, through to reconciliation. This not only accelerates payment cycles but also fortifies security measures, protecting businesses from the financial pitfalls of fraudulent activities.

According to a recent study by McKinsey & Company, companies in the GCC that adopted digital payment solutions like card-based payments reported an average reduction of 30% in payment processing times.
