Cast & Crew Entertainment Services, in an effort to maximize efficiency with regard to a Production's purchasing needs, offers its Purchasing Card (P-Card) service. Through this system, in conjunction with Wells Fargo Bank, a Production is able to request Purchase Cards for members of the crew which can be used anywhere major credit cards are accepted. Productions are then able to reconcile these transactions in PSL3 using the P-Card View/Report [pcardlp] program. Within this program, you are able to view transactions by specific Card Number and date selection, make coding assignments and then export into either A/P Entry [apte] or an Excel Spreadsheet for further modification through the Import an Excel File [xlint] screen.
Please note not all databases are setup with the P-Card View/Report [pcardlp] program. Please contact Cast & Crew's Finance Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (818) 848-6022 to be setup to use P-Cards in PSL3 for your Production.
Also, for information on the administration of the Wells Fargo Commercial Card Expense Reporting (CCER) system including adjustments to credit limits, please contact Cast & Crew's Finance Department at email@example.com or by phone at (818) 848-6022.
