Control & Security

Corporate Charge Cards can help to ensure compliance with internal spending, risk and governance policies by allowing you to control spend:

  • via Merchant Category Group blocking.

Visibility over cardholder spend is greatly improved with all transactions reported on statements and via our Data Management system.
