Put your trust in a reputable Direct Debit Management solution
It feels like we have had our fair share of bad weather here in the UK recently, but whilst this may have affected businesses and consumers, there is one payment solution which is truly ‘weatherproof’ – Direct Debits! Because we utilise cloud-based technology, you can rely on AccessPay’s Direct Debit Management scheme come rain or come shine.
Automate your payments
Bad weather can hit small businesses hard – customers may not trek to the post office or bank to make payments or post a cheque if it’s windy and snowing outside. This is when using an automated payment solution such as Direct Debits can really provide businesses with the boost they need. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside, once your customer has signed up, payments are taken automatically from their account – good news for companies worrying about late or missed payments and great news for customers who don’t have to venture out in the cold to pay their bills.
We all know that severe storms can have disastrous consequences for your business and many premises have been hit hard this year, causing not only damage to buildings but also to computer equipment. There’s nothing worse than finding your computer has been damaged by a leak and you’ve lost valuable information. With cloud computing, these worries become a thing of the past. Cloud-technology is remote access computing – all the hardware and software you use is hosted at a secure, external location. So if you’ve been affected by storm damage, you know your important data is safe.
Here at AccessPay, we have a full range of backup and failsafe systems in place so if there is an issue with one, the data held for each client is still safe. It is far more reliable than entrusting all your important data to one little office PC!
Is Direct Debit Management software right for you?
If you’re considering utilising a cloud-based Direct Debit solution, bear in mind that customers are attracted to this method of payment for the Direct Debit Guarantee, which protects them from error and fraud. This means if there are any problems with a Direct Debit payment, customers will receive a full refund, immediately.
Businesses should always ensure they thoroughly check the security credentials of any company before signing up for their Direct Debit Management solution – ask questions such as the ones below:
- Are they FCA regulated and ISO 27001 certified?
- Are they Bacs approved?
