Transcepta and Transcom Announce Partnership

Companies Team to Offer Electronic Payments

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - August 26, 2009) - Transcepta, the leading innovator in hosted electronic invoicing services, has partnered with Transcom, a division of Merchant e-Solutions, the premier credit card payment processor. Together, the two companies will help businesses reduce costs, improve efficiency and strengthen trading relationships.

Customers who receive invoices electronically from their suppliers through the Transcepta Community can also make electronic payments to their suppliers. Streamlining the accounts payable process with electronic payments offers significant value to a company's accounts payable department. For companies that utilize corporate purchasing cards (sometimes called "P-Cards"), this offering completes the round-trip, from invoice to payment, and increases P-Card volume and therefore, the P-Card rebate. In addition, many suppliers enjoy receiving electronic payments directly into their bank account and the remittance advice directly into their accounts receivable billing systems. Both sides of the trading relationship benefit.

Mitch Baxter, Transcepta vice president of business development, explains, "Transcepta has reached near-perfection connecting companies to exchange invoices. With Transcom we complement our existing e-payment services by offering the best electronic payment solution on the market."

Transcom delivers credit card processing solutions that increase profitability and improve productivity. They specialize in serving commercial bankcard acceptors, and are able to provide cost savings to B2B suppliers who have 'cardholder not present non-swiped' MasterCard and Visa sales by minimizing the interchange fees paid to card issuing banks. "We are excited about this partnership as it complements and supplements our value proposition to the B2B bank card acceptors," said Mark Lewis, Transcom's president.
