Certify, an expense management software provider, has formed an integration collaboration with Western Union. The goal is to provide mass international business payment capabilities for Certify’s expense and invoice customers with operations outside the US. According to the announcement, the arrangement will leverage Western Union’s global payments network and experience in managing distributed financial transaction. Certify will now be able to offer mutual customers the ability to remit employee expense reimbursements and vendor payments directly to employees’ bank accounts in a range of currencies for both domestic and international transactions. The new service, called Certify Payments, is powered by the Western Union Mass Payment API (application programming interface), capable of processing electronic direct to bank payments in 45 currencies. Currently available for all mutual Certify-Western Union customers, the integration allows processing of each currency in accordance with the specifications of each country’s unique clearing system, including settlement times and other factors.
