Brightwell has announced the expansion of its partnership with Virgin Voyages to enable easy digital payments.

“Traditional banking solutions have proven to be too rigid for the challenges that we’ve seen, but managing a corporate disbursement product can be time-consuming,” said John F. Birdsall, senior director of corporate accounting at Virgin Voyages.

“Using ReadyRemit, we save our customers and employees time and money so that we can pay them easily and digitally in near real-time.”

Using ReadyRemit, which is powered by Brightwell’s international payment partners, Virgin Voyages can now pay vendors, workers, and others, and provide customer-facing payouts like rebates, rewards, and refunds using a single digital solution.

 “We are proud to expand our partnership with our client, Virgin Voyages, after three years of service,” said John Markendorf, COO of Brightwell.

“We aim to provide them with cost-effective, simple solutions to their challenges, which has allowed us to grow our relationship with their team to new heights.” 

ReadyRemit not only enables fast digital payments but also allows Brightwell’s customers like Virgin Voyages to provide secure payments to over 120 countries in the world, eliminating the need for Virgin to store customer credit card or banking information.

ReadyRemit was launched in October 2022 with the goal of helping more organizations capture more cross-border revenue and capitalize on the digital payments market quickly and easily.
