Discover and Ariba today announced a new service, AribaPay, a B2B payment settlement solution that will automate the digital, end-to-end ‘Procure to Pay’ process. Utilizing the global reach and security of the Discover Network, AribaPay is a fully integrated, cloud-based solution that automates billing and settlement processing between buyers and seller – without integration work.
Surprisingly, in the US alone, more than 60% of B2B payments are still paid by check, and almost 90% of companies still manually enter and re-key remittance data. Ariba’s current customers have the desire to adopt a system that improves this process. In fact, according to the EMC study, almost 80% of companies are likely or very likely to ‘convert the majority of B2B payments from checks to electronic payments in the next three years1.’
Available in 2014, AribaPay gives buyers the benefits of fewer paper checks, fewer payment inquiries and lower processing costs. Sellers can benefit from on demand, real-time remittance information and faster reconciliation with more transparency.
AribaPay is the latest chapter in Discover’s drive to further shape the emerging payments landscape and offer our network capabilties to new and different partners around the world.
