MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2005--PowerTrack(R), the online payment network from U.S. Bank has just been awarded a patent from the Mexican Patent Office for its unique payment and financial supply chain processes. The patent from Mexico joins the more than 20 issued or pending U.S. and international patents for the PowerTrack Network confirming the unique qualities that PowerTrack brings to the business-to-business (B2B) payment process.

"Our electronic invoice handling, international trade finance, plus corporate and regulatory audit processes deliver exceptional capabilities to companies around the globe," said Kevin Armstrong, senior vice president and general manager for PowerTrack. "Back office efficiency combined with supply chain financing, clearly affords capabilities that are unparalleled in the industry."

PowerTrack processes more than 25 million electronic trade documents annually with more than 25,000 registered users from more than 3,300 locations worldwide.
