CIPFA 2017 Manchester – Hope to see you there!
Please come and visit us on stand 20 and enjoy some of our trade mark Ferrero Rocher chocolates (and more).
The last 12 months have seen a shift in focus from banking arrangements to merchant acquiring (card) services, following the dramatic increase in charges over the period. Consequently, we have seen unprecedented public sector activity in this area, in a bid to secure improved services and reduce costs and have completed over 95 public sector projects in the last three years.
Not only have we secured estimated annual savings of up to 60% on existing card costs but have often achieved quicker settlement terms (i.e. funds credited to a bank account quicker) and ensured that a relevant and current Contract and T’s & C’s were in place, where previously there may have been none.
Linked to this is customer payment strategy – we are increasingly being asked to review an organisations customer payment strategy and to support the development of a Policy that will meet the expectations of customers, has proportionate transactional payment costs and helps to reduce levels of bad debt and delays in payment.
If you would like to know more about these, or other cash management issues, please come and visit us on stand 20, where we will be happy to chat about public sector trends, market developments and best market practice, whilst savouring the delights of a spherical chocolate produced by an Italian chocolatier.
