Xente Uganda Launches its VISA Business Cards Powered by Ecobanks

Every company has scores of people who have purchasing power. Employees have company fuel cards to pay for travel, or managers might have a checkbook to pay for major things like renting a new office space, leasing company vehicles, purchasing another company, or training. It takes a lot of logistics and overhead stress to keep track of all those expenses, and that’s where Xente joins the conversation with their inaugural Visa business cards.

Xente, in a partnership with Visa, EcoBank, and Paymentogoly, has introduced a virtual and physical business card to help companies make online and offline payments to vendors and suppliers or disburse money globally to meet their expenses. In addition, businesses will be able to control and monitor their spending in real-time.
