US-based payments giant, Mastercard announced the launch of Mastercard Track Instant Pay, an innovative virtual card solution to allow instant payments of supplier invoices, today. According to the details shared by the company, the new solution will use machine learning (ML) and straight-through processing (STP) to facilitate B2B payments.

Mastercard highlighted the problems caused by inefficient and slow payment processes. Moreover, the company outlined the negative impact of late cash flow on suppliers. In a safe and secure environment, Mastercard’s new Track Instant Pay authorizes immediate payment to the suppliers once they submit the invoice.

“Delayed payments create significant challenges for businesses financially and operationally, especially in today’s environment,” said Ron Shultz, the Executive Vice President of New Payment Flows for North America at Mastercard. “Track Instant Pay helps solve these pain points by enabling buyers and suppliers to automate their manual payment processes, unlocking valuable time, working capital and choice. This innovative new solution is the latest step in our ongoing commitment to support multiple payment rails and missions to modernize B2B payments.”

The new solution by the financial services provider combines the ML capabilities of the data science company, Previse with its payment network.
