April 10, 2018BridgeStreet has selected Worldpay as its online payments provider for EMEA as they expand into new international markets. BridgeStreet is delivering further on its commitment to connect travel buyers to a growing supplier community. For multinational corporations – or even business traveling globally – the problem of managing currency standards delays productivity and progress. For BridgeStreet's 5000+ clients around the world, a solution was needed to establish consistency in the billing process and mitigate currency confusion.
