As Global Cash Card continues to accelerate our momentum as a premier provider of custom paycard solutions, we value the access to the hospitality community that our Qualified Vendor relationship with Choice Hotels provides us.
Irvine, CA (Vocus) May 14, 2010
Global Cash Card™, the proven specialist in paycard solutions, is excited to announce a new relationship with Choice Hotels International as a member of their Qualified Vendor Program. Choice Hotels International is one of the largest and most successful lodging franchisors in the world with 11 brands and more than 6,000 hotels, representing more than 485,000 rooms, in the United States and more than 35 other countries and territories.
"Choice Hotels’ selection of Global Cash Card for its Qualified Vendor Program came at an opportune time," said Joe Purcell, President and CEO of Global Cash Card. "Given the state of today’s economy, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs. The Global Cash Card paycard program is a solution that benefits everyone involved; the employer will save money, time, and manpower, while the employee receives instant access to their money without the headache and cost of cashing a check.”
According to the American Payroll Association (APA), the direct cost of issuing a paper paycheck is $2 to $4. This does not include potential additional costs, such as delivering paychecks, replacing lost or stolen checks, or mitigating check fraud. Global Cash Card helps clients eliminate these costs by providing a 100% paperless payroll solution through their instant issue, ATM, Visa or MasterCard programs. They also offer customized solutions for per diem, travel and entertainment cards, as well as corporate gift cards, incentive and termination paycards.
“For over ten years, we have successfully increased our clients’ direct deposit adoption, reduced their payroll cost, and improved their employee morale. We put the customer at the heart of everything we do," said Purcell. "As Global Cash Card continues to accelerate our momentum as a premier provider of custom paycard solutions, we value the access to the hospitality community that our Qualified Vendor relationship with Choice Hotels provides us.”
