TSYS Expands Agreement with Regions Bank

TSYS has announced it has signed a long-term contract extension with Regions Bank to continue providing processing services for the bank’s small business and consumer credit card portfolios. As part of the agreement, TSYS will also begin providing processing services for Regions’ commercial credit card portfolio, and will support the bank’s commercial ePayables offering through TSYS’ Virtual Payment Precept (VPP) platform – a strategic virtual card payables solution for B2B payments.

TSYS’ VPP enables the generation of secure, virtual, single-use account information in real-time with more control over account and transaction parameters. It reduces risk, improves operational efficiency and makes it easier for both accounts payable and accounts receivable to reconcile transactions. Virtual cards replace primary account numbers on physical purchasing cards, making them a flexible, secure payment method that allows businesses to place strict limits around what each virtual account number can be used for when making a purchase. Terms of the long-term agreement were not disclosed.
