Huron, Carahsoft, and E&I Align with PaymentWorks to Offer Secure, Compliant and Optimized Business Payments


Waltham, Mass. — October 28, 2021PaymentWorks, the digital onboarding platform for secure, compliant, and optimized business payments, today launched a comprehensive partner program that will cover all aspects of the partner ecosystem, including system integrators, technical partners, resellers, and strategic partners. Featuring well-known organizations including Carahsoft, E&I, Huron as an implementation partner, as well as others, the initiative will extend the reach of PaymentWorks’ proven technology platform across market segments and build upon the organization’s mission to streamline and secure the business payments process.  Visit our website for more information on how our new partner program works or to join our partner ecosystem.

As organizations across healthcare, higher education, state and local governments and enterprise move towards digitizing the business payments processes, many are at risk of social engineering and payments fraud scams. By eliminating that risk and ensuring compliance, PaymentWorks offers what no other provider can – a guarantee and peace of mind. 

“PaymentWorks is offering a strong solution to a problem that has the potential to plague nearly all organizations,” said Jens Brown, Managing Director, focusing on spend management strategy and operations at Huron. “Our customers rely on our expertise in procure-to-pay improvement and vendor master data management, so bolstering our data management services with PaymentWorks  provides an excellent mechanism to mitigate fraudulent payments and delivers a truly innovative answer to the problem.”

Through the program, PaymentWorks partners will be able to provide customers with the only digital onboarding and payment security platform that eradicates fraud risk, ensures compliance, and eliminates paper. Joint clients will enjoy industry leading, proven solutions for vendor management with a guarantee that they will no longer experience financial losses due to vendor impersonation payments fraud through the PaymentWorks’ guarantee. This guarantee allows clients to capitalize on the opportunity to move from check payments to SUA or ACH, minimizing costs, saving time, and reducing their overall risk of fraud.

“Public sector organizations grapple daily with inefficiencies and security gaps related to vendor onboarding and management and are continually targeted for fraud scams as a result,” said Tim Boltz, Sales Director who leads the PaymentWorks Team at Carahsoft. “With the addition of PaymentWorks to our offerings, public sector agencies now have access to an innovative Business Identity Platform that helps secure payment transaction operations from external threats. We look forward to working with PaymentWorks and our resellers to streamline vendor onboarding and management and mitigate payment fraud.”
