Cambridge Global Payments (“Cambridge”), a FLEETCOR company and a provider of integrated cross-border payments and currency risk management solutions, announced the commercial launch of its partnership with Ripple, the enterprise blockchain solution for certain global payments, to deliver cross-border payment solutions to B2B customers. The partnership between Ripple and Cambridge, will optimize payment delivery using RippleNet, Ripple’s global payments network.
During the pilot phase of the partnership, deposits to vendors who used preferred banking partner Siam Commercial Bank saw a 99% reduction in time to payout with RippleNet compared with other providers – a significant drop from the current average of two days.
Cambridge also reported experiencing a higher level of transparency and certainty throughout the payment process. Cambridge is exploring additional countries and currencies that can benefit from access to RippleNet.
“We entered into the relationship with Ripple because it presented Cambridge a great opportunity to use distributed ledger technology to reduce the amount of time it takes for customers to pay their overseas vendors,” said Mark Frey, President, Cambridge Global Payments. “By expanding this relationship, we broaden our reach into the Asia-Pacific region, while providing customers the rapid payment delivery they expect.”
