JPMorgan Chase Launches New Electronic Payment Method For Mid Or Large Size Corporations And Government Agencies


ExacTrac offers integrated payment and reconciliation for the procure-to-pay process

New York – April 17, 2006 – JPMorgan Chase, a leading provider of cash management, trade finance and treasury solutions, today announced the launch of ExacTrac(SM), a new secure, streamlined electronic payment solution for mid-size and large corporations and government agencies. ExacTrac offers a fully automated and integrated process for payments, reporting and reconciliation.

ExacTrac makes payment processes more efficient with end-to-end automation, enabling the reduction or elimination of manual, check-based activities. This payment solution complements existing purchasing or invoicing systems, since it can be easily integrated. ExacTrac enhances reporting and provides controlled spending for each payment, which maximizes program discounts by targeting manual check processing and higher dollar spend transactions. It also builds on the security and fraud prevention of the commercial card industry and shortens reconciliation periods, while at the same time improving accuracy.

“ExacTrac is the perfect complement to an automated procurement and invoicing process. With ExacTrac we help customers leverage the existing investment they have already made in their system by providing a payment solution that easily integrates and quickly produces savings and efficiencies,” said Richard Erario, Senior Vice President and head of the Commercial Card business for JPMorgan Chase Treasury Services. “ExacTrac bolsters our suite of Commercial Card product solutions and enhances our market leading position by further streamlining our clients’ purchase-to-pay process.”

The new ExacTrac payment solution is ideal for any mid or large size corporation or government agency with automated ordering or payment systems. It is also well suited for companies which offer business-to-business services for online travel booking, warranty claims, and event management. Clients who have been using JPMorgan Chase’s ExacTrac payment solution include Embryon Inc., a market development agency for pharmaceutical and device industries.

“JPMorgan Chase’s ExacTrac is a highly customizable product that has substantially increased productivity while allowing us to implement very specialized spending controls,” said Brian Clancey, Chief Financial Officer of Embryon, Inc.

JPMorgan Chase’s ExacTrac offers key features and benefits, such as:

* Automated reporting and reconciliation of pre-purchase information to actual transaction data without manual data entry.
* Seamless integration into existing ordering or invoicing systems to compliment straight-through processing of purchases.
* Controlled spending limits for each payment including limits for amount, date range, and merchant type
* Increased program discounts by expanding clients’ card programs.
* Dedicated implementation team to provide installment assistance and product training.

ExacTrac is part of JPMorgan Chase’s award-winning suite of commercial card programs, which offer customers an innovative and integrated e-procurement solution for streamlining payment, reconciliation and data integration for business-to-business purchases.
