As a way of providing better customer service functions to
purchase card (P-Card) holders, SLAC will be changing to Bank One from
Bank of America on March 21st. Over the past several months, Purchasing
and Accounting have been working closely with Bank One to prepare for this
Recently, a Bank One Commercial Card Representative
introduced the purchase card to a sample of ‘power users,‘ showing them
the new system and its benefits. All current cardholders and their
approving officials have been given the opportunity to see and hear about
the new internet-based card management system.
General training and discussion of the program
enhancements were presented to P-Card holders and their approvers on March
6 and 7.
Benefits of the new P-Card:
• Provides each cardholder and his/her approver real-time
access to P-Card activity from any computer.
• Will enhance our ability to extract data on how and
where P-Cards are being used.
Cardholders will be migrated to the online system,
division-by-division, during late spring and early summer.
During the week of March 10th, time will be set aside for
current Bank of America VISA cardholders to pick up their new Bank One
On March 21, all P-Card cardholders will begin using
MasterCard and all VISA card accounts will be deactivated.
The Business Services Division (BSD) is making every
effort to transition cardholders seamlessly. We hope you will value the
enhancements to the program available through Bank One.
Current cardholders and approvers will be contacted
directly with more specific information.
