There could be a lingering question if your business is slowly eating away profits: Does your company have a billing and payment problem?
Implementing payments and billing efficiently is vital to your business health, yet maybe something is broken and it’s impacting the way your business works today. In many cases, our everyday business lives come with so many varied challenges that the most important, foundational problems are ones hidden in the bedrock. Upgrades such as APIs and using closed-loop cards can help contain expense and ease user experience.
When it comes to billing and payment systems, there is a way to identify warning signs of a problem that may be costing your business big money, and could be eroding your reputation among customers and partners.
At the heart of the system are your customers, and associated transaction data reflecting their buying patterns, and purchasing volume providing signals of the vitality of your business. Evaluating this data usually tells a story, just like the doctor taking your blood pressure and temperature.

Multi-Service Technology Solutions (MSTS) was founded in 1978 by a former trucking company owner who wanted to automate payments for trucking services.

Most businesses have a natural aversion to risk, experience resource constraints and often a need to cater to customers who use disparate merchant networks. This poses a tremendous challenge to scalability.
In today’s digital economy, most people think that sending money across borders is a seamless process.
For businesses looking to expand their ventures in global markets, cross-border payment frictions can vary from delivering international payments on time in the correct amount to delivering them in the recipient’s preferred currency.
No B2B transaction occurs in a vacuum. Buyers and suppliers must consider the history of their relationship, negotiated rates and payment terms, and the reputations of the companies working together.
“Credit as a Service” debuted today from payments company MSTS to let online sellers provide their own branded lines of credit to buyers.
Retailers around the world are losing sales to Amazon.com and other online marketplaces, and some are looking to replace lost business-to-consumer (B2C) revenue by expanding business-to-business (B2B) sales.
