Reaching widespread adoption for businesses to exchange electronic remittance information – or details about a payment – with each other remains a primary goal of the Business Payments Coalition (BPC). This is a challenge for the industry primarily due to the unstructured format and detached delivery of remittance information. The BPC is committed to addressing major provider and end user pain points in sharing electronic remittance information.
The BPC supports industry efforts to align on a common core of remittance content and delivery methods that promote broad adoption of electronic remittance data. While the remittance solutions landscape is still evolving, electronic remittance capabilities play a strong role in reducing payment application costs and improving overall efficiency. All companies, regardless of size, can benefit from the modernization of remittance information to help reduce payment application costs and improve efficiency.
