The campaign spotlights the suite of MasterCard Corporate Payment Solutions designed to help companies streamline procurement processes, eliminate paperwork, track spending and analyze financial data.
The effort features the tagline "Helping you find profits in new places." It consists of three ads that have started appearing in current issues of The Economist, Fortune and Purchasing magazines. The headline for one ad is: "Bean Counter. Number Cruncher. Penny-Pincher. Tightwad. What They Really Mean Is Thanks."
The campaign also will appear in BusinessWeek, CFO, Fortune, Treasury & Risk Management and other publications during the year as well as online at sites such as CFO.com, Google, WashingtonPost.com and WallStreetJournal.com.
