South Portland, ME (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
WEX Inc. (NYSE: WEX), a leading provider of corporate payment solutions, today announced it has partnered with AnchorOps, Inc., a solutions provider for the advertising and media industry, to launch AnchorOps ePay, a customized payment solution for advertising and media buying agencies. The solution provides the media industry with the ability to manage payment transactions through one software solution.
“As the pioneer in developing a virtual payment solution more than a decade ago, WEX is continuing to strategically grow in markets where there is a real need, including the media industry,” said Jim Pratt, general manager of global virtual payments at WEX. “AnchorOps' proven adeptness with media reconciliation and its emphasis on driving operational efficiencies make for a natural partnership.”
Designed to streamline the agencies’ payables, AnchorOps ePay eliminates paper check disbursements to media vendors, and it offers those vendors and suppliers an option to receive their payments faster and more predictably. Additionally, AnchorOps ePay provides secure storage of vendor data and payment preferences, and it combines detailed reporting and data for remittance and reconciliation for both the institution and the vendor.
“Our overarching objective is to improve agency profit margins through innovative solutions. We also understand a unique collaborative relationship exists between agencies and media properties, which is why we designed this solution as a win/win for both parties,” said David Frogel, president of AnchorOps. “AnchorOps is excited to tap into WEX's deep experience with payments technology, and deliver this unique platform to the advertising industry.”
