From its inception, Paymerang has helped our clients fight fraud and protect their organization’s treasury.
That’s why we are proud to partner with the Virginia Association of State Superintendents (VASS), the Virginia Association of School Business Officers (VASBO), and former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to help Virginia’s public schools learn how they can protect their data and our taxpayer dollars from cybercrime.
The Governor and Paymerang CEO Nasser Chanda held a spirited
session, with over 200 school superintendents and business officers, where they
discussed some of the resources available to localities and school divisions.
This includes partnering with the Fusion Center to do a cyber risk analysis,
which can often be done free of charge and with minimal staff time.
On day two of the conference we held a Q&A session with
thirty VASS and VASBO members, who heard from the current Governor’s
administration, Paymerang’s own Director of Cybersecurity Jeff Gainer, and the
Virginia State Police. The panel provided Superintendents and School Business
Officers with the opportunity to learn about the threat cybercrime presents to
their IT and financial infrastructure, and to ask questions of the foremost
experts dealing with this threat every day.
One key takeaway from our discussion is that fighting cybercrime
is not just one person’s job in an organization. It is important that
organizations have a culture of information sharing and threat alertness.

The world of electronic supplier payments is growing rapidly. Companies are making the transition to eliminate check writing and move to secure electronic payment (ePayment) platforms. The time savings, fraud prevention, and cost savings have already convinced many companies to outsource their accounts payable disbursements. Traditionally, banks have been the trusted adviser in this new world, but are they the best choice? Sending over some card payments, ACH transactions and wire transfers does not constitute a holistic ePayments solution. And yet, that is exactly what many companies are doing. Fractional bank solutions do not provide the best opportunity to transform your AP department. CFOs and Controllers should be asking the following questions:
- Will I still need to reconcile my accounts?
- Do I need to open a line of credit to process my card payments?
- Who does all the work in enrolling new vendors after initial setup, and what level of service is provided to these vendors?
- Will you make sure I am compliant with NACHA, OFAC and PCI?
If the answer to any of these questions results in additional work for your AP department or does not mitigate your risk—a fractional bank solution is not in your best interests. A complete ePayment platform will allow you to gain operating efficiency, reduce or eliminate check writing, provide generous cash rebates, ensure compliance and protect your funds in the most secure environment possible.

Paymerang Volunteers at Habitat for Humanity Chesterfield ReStore
Our team volunteered at the new Habitat for Humanity Chesterfield ReStore. Locations like this one help fund the building of affordable housing across the Greater Richmond area. We were able to help organize the store, sort donations for sale, assist in accepting donated items. Most importantly, we loved giving back to our community!
The Habitat ReStore is a retail outlet offering building and home improvement supplies for sale to the general public at greatly reduced prices. The new, gently used, and salvaged supplies are donated by individuals, contractors, and suppliers. Every purchase made at Chesterfield’s new ReStore supports the construction of Habitat for Humanity homes for members of the community.
Since its inception, Habitat has helped build over 400,000 homes for more than 2 million people around the world.
The Richmond Habitat chapter joined the affordable housing effort in 1986. Since then, they’ve built more than 300 homes for deserving families. Along with their partner families, generous volunteers, and donors, they have restored the hope and dignity that poverty housing often strips away. Paymerang is proud to be a part of their mission to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

Rethinking Checks’ Role In B2B Payments Friction
Paymerang CEO, Nasser Chanda, recently spoke with PYMNTS about the evolution of B2B payments—in particular, the shift to electronic payments and the continuing role of traditional paper checks. Since our story began in 2010, we’ve had one simple goal in mind: to facilitate electronic supplier payments and make business payments easy, for payors and payees alike.
Paymerang recognizes that vendor relationships are the lifeblood of our clients’ businesses—happy vendors enable successful operations—and we do not want to disrupt that relationship long-term. We are flexible in working with vendors during the enrollment process, offering choice and ensuring that payment settlement is friction-less, whether by electronic payment or check. Typically, these suppliers recognize that their customers want to shift from paper checks to more secure and efficient methods of payment, such as a virtual card or ACH. Flexibility in working with vendors and persistence in settling payments has allowed Paymerang to keep vendors happy while achieving a world-class electronic payment acceptance over the years. Our payment network spans 70,000+ suppliers from coast to coast, with 75% receiving electronic payments over traditional checks.
