Automated Payment Solution Reduces Overhead and Lowers Expenses

Rancho Cordova, CALIF – VSP Global is leading the way in improving the employee experience for remote workers while reducing costs and increasing efficiency. To simplify payments for broadband services for “work from home” employees, VSP Global has partnered with Cass Information Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CASS), a global provider of integrated information and payment management solutions to launch its Bring Your Own Network (BYON) program.

Leveraging Cass’s patented Direct2Carrier Payments™ solution, BYON enables eligible employees to sign up for broadband subsidies to be paid directly to their home internet service provider each month, automatically. Registration is a simple, one-time event through a user-friendly portal. VSP Global will make one monthly payment that Cass will manage and pay to every Internet Service Provider for registered users. A credit will show up on the employee’s personal account without the cost or burden of processing expense reports or payroll stipends.

“With a largely distributed workforce due to the pandemic, including our customer service teams, home internet access is critical for employees to continue serving our members, doctors and clients, and conduct business effectively,” said VSP Global Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Dan Fowler. “We’re able to support these workforce needs thanks to an innovative offering from Cass, which relieves administrative overhead and provides a seamless and secure administration process for broadband subsidies.”

“We’re excited to be working with VSP Global on this initiative” said Gary Langfitt, president of Cass Expense Management Services. “As remote working is swiftly becoming the standard for many enterprises, BYON enables business units such as HR, IT, and Accounts Payable to adapt to the trend easily and efficiently.”
