Today Mesh Payments announced expansion of its unified spend management platform to support global multinational businesses operating in Europe, UK, and Asia in local currencies. Mesh now enables companies to operate globally across international entities, issue local cards and settle in local currencies all from one unified platform.

The global expansion comes after 3X growth in 1H 2023, new product capabilities to help companies save money and increase finance team productivity, and competitive customer wins across technology and financial services sectors, including Fortune 100 companies.

Globalization and remote working trends have led to an increase in complex multinational structures and distributed workforces. Unlike Mesh, most spend management platforms have yet to address the needs of companies with international entities. Automating manual tasks, receipt collection, and spend workflows with a unified spend management solution across multiple entities accelerates productivity of finance teams by more than 30%.

“As the industry leader in mobile and marketing measurement solutions, it’s critical for AppsFlyer to take any friction out of the back office so we can keep the focus on serving our thousands of customers worldwide,” said Yuval Levinson, VP Finance of San Francisco-based AppsFlyer. “Spend management across multiple international entities can be challenging for accounting, specifically to maintain a high level of internal control. With Mesh, we are able to eliminate all our manual and time-consuming processes around international subsidiary spend management and focus on our strategic finance operations.”

Mesh unified dashboards summarize activity across all entities and automatically sync all transaction details to the associated general ledger. Other specific global capabilities include:

Localized operations, local currency — Manage spend by provisioning cards in local currency, including EU countries, the UK, Singapore, and Hong Kong with embedded policy enforcement for enhanced control for entity, individual, and business unit transactions.

ERP integrations — Automatically code and post transactions to local instances of the ERP by leveraging robust ERP integrations.

Global compliance — Local compliance, with the ability to itemize VAT and taxation across all entities. Subsidiary-level tax compliance and reporting capabilities. Receipt matching automation and itemization compliant with direct integrations for leading ERP and HRIS systems.

Localized and embedded policy enforcement — The ability to set and enforce local spend policies and rules happens before any transaction is made.

Fund reimbursement locally —  Entities can fund reimbursements from local bank accounts for employees in local currency.

“Managing spend for remote workforces and global operations can be complex, but Mesh offers a unified platform for global enterprises to handle local operations in local currency at scale,” said Oded Zehavi, co-founder and CEO, Mesh Payments. “Mesh Payments is thrilled to help businesses increase their finance efficiency and solve the pain points of global spend.”

With precise controls, embedded spend policies, reporting on every transaction, and the most robust ERP integrations available, Mesh increases finance team productivity, steers spend decision-making, and helps companies save money.

Mappable

Mappable, a global company that brings powerful and highly customizable mapping solutions to the local markets, announces the launch of its new product — the Neurogeocoder API, which is now available to all clients in the UAE.

The Neurogeocoder API, powered by machine learning and AI, is a game-changer in geospatial solutions, particularly in light of the projected 14.2% CAGR growth of the global digital map market by 2030. Unlike standard geocoders with fixed algorithms set by the development team, Neurogeocoder’s adaptive nature ensures precise results, even with unstructured location queries containing errors or typos. This advanced tool allows for the seamless display of user-entered addresses on maps and facilitates the transformation of map points into detailed street addresses, ensuring precise and reliable location results. By recognizing local expressions for districts, towers, and roads, the Neurogeocoder effectively links them to specific addresses or points, a feat beyond the capabilities of standard geocoders.

The Neurogeocoder API is a powerful tool for various industries, including e-commerce, real estate, food-tech, ride-tech, and logistics. It helps quickly translate large address volumes into coordinates and vice versa, as well as process intricate or locally specific location queries for different business scenarios. For e-commerce, the Neurogeocoder can enhance customer service by displaying pickup points on maps, allowing users to choose the most convenient location when placing orders. For real estate companies, the tool can accurately showcase property locations, helping potential buyers visualize the surroundings to make informed decisions when considering a purchase. For logistics services, the API optimizes operations by providing accurate addresses to managers for better cost estimation of deliveries, leading to increased operational efficiency and cost savings for the business.

In addition to the Neurogeocoder API, Mappable offers a comprehensive suite of solutions tailored to multiple business needs:

  • Performative, customizable, and data-rich maps for clients’ websites, apps, or CRM.
  • Automatic geo verification and easy search by address, coordinates, and other parameters.
  • Navigation and route planning tools that take into account traffic and weather forecasts as well as other parameters, to help drivers, couriers, and other professionals efficiently move around the country.

“The UAE is rapidly progressing in the fields of technology, e-commerce, and smart mobility and we’re excited to support businesses on this journey. Mappable solutions allow companies to optimize logistics and enhance customer service quality by automating processes and reducing workloads on internal personnel, call centers and order-processing specialists. We know what local businesses need and are constantly updating our products, using machine learning and AI to give our clients the best possible mapping solutions. The newly launched Neurogeocoder is a great example of this. It understands our address-inputting habits and adapts to them”, explained Sabina Mirza-Akhmedova, Chief Executive Officer at Mappable.
