We are here to support you in your effort to bring Commercial Card and Payments programs, best practices and cost savings to end-user organizations in the Corporate, Government and Education sectors.
When you link the NAPCP to your clients and prospects, you lead Commercial Card and Payments program professionals to the resources and industry contacts they need to achieve the success you know is possible.
Let the NAPCP help you educate: spend more time consulting with clients, not educating them
Increase sales: when customers understand industry best practices, they’re more likely to implement technology and services to put those in place
Realize higher transaction volume: educated clients optimize their programs

The Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) credential isn’t just for end-users. For many providers, the journey from application to certification brings a broader level of industry knowledge, cost-saving ideas to take back to client programs, and greater credibility among peers, clients and prospects. Take it from John:
"Since the CPCP designation is already becoming recognized throughout the purchasing card market as an indicator of one's knowledge and experience, I felt it was important - and very worthwhile - to become certified. In my role as an Account Manager for the leading Commercial Card Provider in the industry, my clients look to me on a daily basis to share best practices, recommend strategies for growth, and provide general information to help them run the most successful card programs. My CPCP certification is one more way of building my clients' confidence in my credentials to meet these needs. It also reflects positively on American Express as an issuer, in that we're offering to clients and prospects a truly professional support team. Although I'd say the process, qualifications and test are sufficiently robust to ensure real meaning behind the CPCP designation, they are not insurmountable and I would encourage all professionals in P-Card roles to make it their goal to become certified."
