About pliant

pliant offers modern corporate credit cards. Their convenient and easy-to-use card management platform allows for flexible setting of card limits, real-time reporting and seamlessly integrates with a customer’s existing setup of accounting and travel expense management tools and processes. On top of that, pliant offers competitive terms with attractive cashbacks and partner deals. Their Visa Infinite Business cards are equipped with useful features like tailored insurance packages and worldwide airport lounge access.


pliant was progressing quickly towards its target launch date when issues with Wirecard, which was both its issuer and issuer processor, were exposed.


GPS stepped up to assist a number of programme managers like pliant who were impacted by the suspension of Wirecard’s operations. Not only did GPS take on the processing, but it also facilitated introductions and led conversations with issuers who could step in.

“Despite the turbulent times created by the Wirecard situation, GPS remained responsive to our needs and enquiries during the onboarding process when things were changing on a daily basis
