Today Visa Purchasing Cards are used by Mission Support Alliance to make small value purchases, resulting in approximately 20,000 transactions per year.
More commodities and services each year become eligible for purchasing under the MSA P-Card program. The use of Intranet and Internet purchasing of calibration services, office supplies, and computers are just a few of the procurement processes.
As the P-Card program continues to grow and evolve with each year, MSA will continue to search for ways to streamline processes. In addition, the organization is continually encouraging the use of the P-Card as a payment mechanism. Currently we have 46 contracts where the P-Card is used as a 'payment mechanism,' thus cutting the costs of invoicing and providing prompt payment to suppliers...essentially creating a win-win situation for all.
Benefits to suppliers of being a Purchasing Card supplier are:
- Faster ordering
- One-on-one interface with customer by phone, fax or in person
- No invoicing required
- Payments within as little as 48 hours, resulting in better cash flow
