ProCard Benefits

Advantages of the ProCard Program

  • Efficient, timely, and cost-effective method of payment for small dollar transactions (expenses incurred to process a small dollar purchase can run as high as the price of the item itself).
  • The card may be used for items that are needed immediately.
  • Participating departments will be allowed to procure low dollar items in person, or by mail, phone, or through the Internet.
  • Eliminates the need for most requisitions that currently generate an automatic payment. (Registrations, memberships, subscriptions, etc.)
  • Vendors will be paid immediately by the credit card company, increasing vendor good will, and at times generating better discounts.
  • The university will make one payment per month to PNC Bank, rather than one payment per vendor.
  • Eliminates the need for petty cash reimbursements
