Mercedes-Benz Financial and Insurance Services customers now have an easier way to pay
Espoo, Finland, 17 January 2018 – Basware, the global leader in networked source-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services solutions, and AcceptEasy, the cloud-based online, mobile and social payments service provider, have established a partnership to offer a complete payment solution for customers sending electronic invoices. Consumers and small businesses can complete payments for the invoices they receive digitally from Basware customers with just a few steps, without registration or log-in.
Mikko Pilkama, SVP of Network and Financing Services: “Businesses send invoices to lots of consumers and small business customers. These invoices can represent a high percentage of the total volume of invoice flow, and it is financially beneficial for the company if they are paid easily and quickly. For example, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and Mercedes-Benz Insurance Services can now send all their outgoing bills in the right format from a single environment and receive payments faster from their clients.”
Tanja Kubera, Manager Finance & Administration of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services says: “We are happy to offer our customers an easier way to pay invoices they owe us. As a result, we can now trace the status of customer payments in real-time. Billing and customer service staff have insight into whether customers have received, opened and paid the bills. This ‘one click payment’ has resulted in quicker incoming payments, improvement of working capital, easier debtors matching, reduced Days Sales Outstanding and elimination of incorrect or late payments.”
The customers of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services and Mercedes-Benz Insurance Services receive a secure digital payment request displaying key invoice information, including amount owed, an invoice number, expiry date, the payment beneficiary and product / service description. By clicking an embedded payment button, the customer can go straight to the authorization of the payment without any re-keying any information.
Peter Kwakernaak, CEO of AcceptEasy: “We are proud of this partnership. Basware and AcceptEasy are market leaders in their respective spaces. We both have a focus on household names with an international footprint and a shared mission: facilitate digital payments for companies in all possible communication channels, creating a frictionless payment experience for their customers.”
