Reduced mailroom volume. Even the mailroom will experience a drop in volume, since there will be far fewer incoming supplier invoices and outgoing company checks. A procurement card is easy to implement (just hand it out to employees), though one should keep a significant difficulty in mind: The banks that issue credit cards must expend extra labor to set up a procurement card for a company, since each one must be custom-designed. Consequently, they prefer to issue procurement cards only to those companies that can show a significant volume of credit card business—usually at least $1 million per year.

Another use for the ghost card is to provide it to preferred suppliers for ongoing use, with each supplier being given a unique ghost card number; the suppliers automatically charge it when purchases are made by employees. This greatly streamlines the more common approach of charging the plastic card of whichever company employee shows up to make a purchase. Another advantage of the ghost card is that some suppliers are now providing direct input of charge information into corporate ERP systems, so that purchases can be charged directly to the correct department with no manual data entry needed.

Some invoice numbers include slashes, spaces, or dashes, which should be avoided. It is especially common for some systems to add “-IN” to the end of an invoice number, in order to signify that this number is related to an invoice. If so, drop both the dash and the “IN” from the invoice number. The numbering convention should specify what type of alternate identifier to use if there are several options available; otherwise, the data entry staff may enter a different number, resulting in a possible duplicate payment.
