Ixaris alongside Amadeus have been selected as winners of the Best Business Card Programme at this year’s Cards & Payments Awards. The award recognises the Amadeus B2B Wallet Prepaid – a virtual card solution launched by Ixaris in partnership with global travel technology provider Amadeus.
Amadeus B2B Wallet Prepaid has been developed specifically to enable travel agencies around the globe to make payments using a virtual prepaid card – helping them earn additional revenue, make savings on supplier services and avoid unnecessary payment surcharges. The card programme is supported by a joint Ixaris-Amadeus team established to focus on and meet the constantly evolving payment needs of the travel industry.
On winning the Award, Alex Mifsud, CEO of Ixaris Group, commented: “Winning this award is an endorsement of our strategy, and testament to the progress we have made toward our goal of bringing unprecedented levels of efficiency to B2B payments. All of us at Ixaris are focussed on developing solutions that address inefficiencies that are specific to individual industries. For the travel industry, with ever growing, relentless competition, this means identifying new ways to drive savings and gain an edge.”
Celia Pereiro, Head of Travel Payments at Amadeus said “We are very proud to receive this joint recognition that has been made possible with Ixaris’ advanced technology and brilliant team. B2B Wallet now cements its place in the market as a reference in payments innovation, allowing our travel agency customers the power to fully optimise their cash flow and focus on the customer. We look forward to rolling this innovation out worldwide, following Amadeus’ global footprint.”
