Tungsten’s customer portfolio includes many Fortune 500 companies who rely on its secure invoicing technology to provide efficient, straight-through payment processing. Reliability of these critical processes ensured credibility and customer retention and also business expansion as Tungsten secured itself as a leading global trading network.
