Today, many accounts payable departments rely on outdated systems and processes to make cross border payouts. By making payout capabilities a part of your digital transformation, your business can enjoy faster, more cost-effective and convenient ways to make mass disbursements and payout employees, gig-workers, sellers and suppliers worldwide.
In order to be competitive in today’s global marketplace, CFOs and financial leaders need to plan out their company’s transition from legacy payout methods to digital payout solutions. By integrating local and cross border payouts, businesses can attract better talent and reach new markets.
3 Ways to Improve Your Cross Border Payout Capabilities
1. Select a Mass Cross-Border Payout Solution with Local Payment Methods
Many companies still rely on legacy solutions like wire transfers and paper checks. High wire-transfer fees can frustrate recipients. Checks are inefficient and only relevant in a few markets, such as the U.S. To be effective globally, businesses need a mass cross-border payout solution that provides all the alternative and local payout methods recipients prefer. But even a simple migration to ACH bank transfers feels like a burden for many businesses and the work of implementing new payout methods is both expensive and time-consuming.
Instead of taking on the task of integrating various individual payout methods, companies should consider a disbursement platform that manages payouts, compliance and foreign exchange in one scalable global solution.
Make Mass Payouts Payoff
Make the way you pay workers, contractors and sellers a competitive advantage for your business.
2. Cross-Border Issuing for Virtual or Physical Cards
Cross-border issuing and program management can be easier than you might think. Virtual or physical cards can be easily issued to simplify making payouts to individuals such as gig-economy workers, freelance employees and resellers. Issuing your own cards can also give you more control over employee and gig worker expenses.
Issuing your own cards can lower overhead, eliminate the need for inefficient physical checks and give remote employees the ability to keep business moving. On top of that, you can build loyalty with your own reward programs and mine data generated from transactions for insights and process improvements.
