Travel Expense System
Traditionally, travel expense systems are recipients of data and invoice images generated by smart.billing. According to the philosophy of smart.billing, we supply all backend systems to the extent required by the client. More and more travel expense systems integrate our services.
Payment service providers – Credit card companies
As a second pillar, the payment service providers are an essential part of the smart.billing partner concept. smart.billing acts for the selected credit card providers as consolidator and data enrichment provider. As a result of the enrichment in smart.billing, Level2 credit card data becomes high quality Level3 billing information that can be processed fully automatically in the accounting systems. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Payment specialists here.
