The HRS PAY business unit is hyper-focused on driving not only the HRS “flywheel” via the powerful combination of STAY and PAY, but also our own PAY flywheel whereby both corporate clients and third-party partners benefit from leveraging HRS PAY’s technology and capabilities. The more corporate clients use PAY, the more third-party partners such as banks, card issuers, ERPs, booking platforms and other financial service providers want to partner and collaborate with us, and this drives further commercial growth for PAY by monetizing those partnership streams. HRS PAY is a “tech fin” in that we provide the technology that powers the payment workflow as well as delivers the highest level of available payment data to enable our customers to make intelligent decisions around their program spending. Only HRS PAY offers this powerful combination of automation, data optimization, and payment on-the-go technology all in one platform.
