Torpago, Marqeta and Sunwest Bank, have partnered to launch Sunwest Visionary Card, Sunwest’s commercial credit card and expense management solution.
Commercial credit card and spend management provider, Torpago, is an existing strategic partner of global card issuing platform, Marqeta.
Sunwest Visionary Card incorporates a cloud-native, event-driven infrastructure with Marqeta’s modern card issuing API. Combined with Torpago’s ‘Powered By’ solution, this enables community bank Sunwest to launch a bank-branded credit card programme. Community banks are financial pillars to their surrounding communities, providing critical financial services to their customers. In the US there are nearly 4,500 community banks, representing approximately 97% of all banks in the country.
A recent Torpago survey of community banks in the US found that 93.2% recognise the significance of delivering customer experiences, with a focus on digital and mobile banking.
Deepening existing customer relationships, attracting new business
Sunwest views modernisation with Torpago as a growth engine.
“At Sunwest Bank, we empower our clients, who we consider Visionary Entrepreneurs, with tools to grow and manage their business. The Visionary Corporate Card platform solution is one of the tools we consider essential for every business,” said Carson Lappetito, President of Sunwest Bank. “After an exhaustive search, we found a fintech partner, Torpago, whose technology helped us bring the world-class platform solution to life.”
