Webinar: Covid 19’s Impact on Commercial Card Programme Management and Use
Online | June 16, 2020 | 12pm EST / 5pm BST
In Q2 of 2020 RPMG Research Corporation led a survey of commercial card programme administrators, in companies across multiple sectors in North America, to determine the top issues and concerns facing end users of card products in the Covid-19 crisis. Conducted by academic Professors Mahendra Gupta and Richard Palmer, the survey reveals how card programme management and policies are adapting to pandemic-driven changes in workforce dynamics and the impact these adaptations are having on the use of card credit in B2B payments to suppliers. In this webinar we discuss the findings of the survey with the authors and extend the survey to webinar participants, with online polling and interactive debate.
