A large commercial issuer wanted increased visibility into emerging trends and opportunities within its own portfolio and the broader commercial card market. Due to unreliable product code allocations, they also faced limitations in isolating trends across their three major product types (virtual, B2B and T&E cards).
Mastercard’s Commercial Card Insights provided the issuer with comprehensive information about its portfolio performance compared to a peer set and the broader commercial cards market. Using proprietary data cleansing techniques, behavioral modeling and segmentation, Commercial Card Insights delivered detailed reports by product type, enabling the issuer to identify trends and growth opportunities across their virtual, B2B and T&E card portfolios.
Example findings include:
The issuer had a lower share of virtual card spend in Hotels and Healthcare, compared with the broader market, identifying key opportunity areas.
Compared to market benchmarks, the issuer had a lower share of B2B cards in the top 10 identified market segments.
The issuer strongly over-indexed for T&E spend in Government Services, while lagging the market for share of spend in Grocery and Insurance.
