Q-Card launches innovative app that helps companies better control and manage online spending
03 June 2022
The new Dutch fintech label, located in Rotterdam, Q-Card allows companies to provide their employees virtual payment cards through a uniform payment solution. The intuitive application process via the Q-Card app gives companies the flexibility to set custom budgets and approval rules per user type for the purchase of products and services. A one-time limited card is issued for each purchase. These virtual Q-Cards are full Mastercards, comparable to a physical credit card that also includes a card number, validity date, CVC and verification code. The app will ensure secure and transparent cash flows by directly linking online purchases to transactions, capturing purchasing data with detailed reports, and seamless integration with any accounting system.
Q-Card is an initiative of Quyntess, an expert in Supply Chain Management apps that improves collaboration between supply chain partners on a global scale. By launching Q-Card, the company is targeting a new product-market combination in which companies can bring so-called 'long tail spend' under control, with the current focus on 'online' spend as a fast-growing category. The advantage is that no master data has to be entered into the ERP or accounting system for this broad and slow group of one-time suppliers, with detailed requirements in the field of 'Know Your Customer' (KYC). “We are extremely proud that we have developed this product entirely according to the Agile principles for one of our launching customers,” says Rob van Ipenburg, CEO at Q-Card. “The trend of online B2B spend will increase in the Netherlands, as elsewhere in the world, and that requires an efficient payment solution such as Q-Card. In the Netherlands, this segment will reach a growth of 70% in 2025. For many companies, this is now 10% or more of the spend volume, which is why this solution fits in perfectly with the digital transformation strategy for procure-to-pay processes.”
In order to carefully facilitate card issuing, Quyntess has opted for a strategic partnership with Adyen, which is active worldwide with its financial technology. “Adyen facilitates the entire transaction flow – that means both card issuance and acquiring,” said Thom Ruiter, VP Banking and Financial Products at Adyen. “We are extremely happy to enter into this partnership with Quyntess. In addition to the many users in e-commerce, together with Quyntess, we are expanding our Issuing portfolio in various branches, such as the manufacturing industry and logistics sectors.”
