The Corporate Connections MasterCard brings a new level of efficiency to corporate card use and reporting, assisted by internet technology that provides the ability to monitor card usage and expenditure.
Take a look at our demonstration to see how MasterCard Connections Online can help make your credit card management easier.
To meet the needs of our Corporate and Business Bank customers, St.George Corporate Connections MasterCard gives you worldwide acceptance for purchases, entertainment, travel, cash advances and ATM withdrawals.
MasterCard Connections Online can help make credit card management easier. This internet-based management system provides sophisticated reporting and management options featuring details of all card expenditure and transactions.
Online reporting makes expense reconciliation, monitoring and auditing easier than ever before. Up to 20 different reporting functions are available, delivering a new level of control over card use and management.
MasterCard Connections Online helps beat the paper chase for you and your staff. Key functions and features include:
Our one card strategy gives you the convenience of making a variety of purchases from general procurement and purchasing, to travel and entertainment.
Provided you remain within your overall facility limit, there's no limit to the number of cards available to your employees.
Your suppliers enjoy almost instant payment while you can benefit from an interest free period of up to 35 days after purchases, allowing you to spread the cost of purchases over the month.
Save time and effort on paperwork with the convenience of automatic monthly payments. At the end of every month St.George automatically debits the total balance of card transactions to your nominated account.
Cardholders will be able to obtain cash advances and make purchases up to the available balance on their card. We provide you with the flexibility to set individual cardholder credit limits and daily ATM cash withdrawal limits.
Additional deposits to card accounts can be made via BPAY®, or over the counter at St.George or Bank SA branches.
You won't need special software to integrate MasterCard Connections Online into your existing accounting system. It lets you or your staff transfer data electronically, saving hours of administrative time each month. If required, all transactions can be allocated a general ledger code and/or a project code. For maximum efficiency, reports and data can even be downloaded, if required, into your organisation's own financial management system.
We provide you with the flexibility to allocate cards to selected employees and set their individual credit limits (between $500 and $250,000).
ATM cash access is available throughout the world with each cardholder using their own Personal Identification Number. Daily ATM cash withdrawal limits can be specified for each cardholder between nil and $1,000.
MasterCard Connections Online uses a hierarchical reporting structure. The hierarchy groups cardholders, departments, or divisions for the purpose of running reports, exporting transaction data and reviewing transactions. The administrator has the highest level in the hierarchy, with access to all levels, including supervisors and accounts.
You have the ability to control cardholder spend by monitoring cardholder expenditures, reviewing reports that summarise all card transactions, purchases at specific merchant types, and so on. Reports can be scheduled to run at whatever frequency you require, e.g. daily, monthly, weekly, quarterly, etc.
Cardholders can check and authorise transactions via MasterCard Connections Online as frequently as required. They can split transactions online if they're for multiple purposes (e.g. lunch bill - part FBT and part not) or for general ledger allocation across multiple cost centres.
You can create a secure access hierarchy, so that transaction and account data can be shared throughout your organisation with appropriate levels of security access.
Liability/unauthorised use insurance is included at no extra cost, protecting your organisation from employee misuse or fraud. Up to $20,000 per individual cardholder and up to a maximum of $150,000 per overall facility. Transport Accident Cover is provided to cardholders while travelling as a passenger on a licensed plane, tourist bus, train or ferry when the ticket is purchased on their Corporate Connections MasterCard.
