Following the success of their technology partnership to provide a complete electronic remittance advice and payments solution, the Tall Group of Companies and Experian Payments have launched a mid-corporate Bacstel-IP application.
The solution integrates the TALL Group's e-remittance module with Experian Payments' UK Gateway software, incorporating the product within the Integrated Payments Solution now available from the TALL Group.
The Checkprint Bacstel-IP Solution, powered by Experian Payments' UK Gateway software, provides full featured Bacs (three day payments) access and comprehensive Direct Debit collections (AUDDIS-compliant enabling paperless Direct Debit). The new solution enables users to automatically configure remittance advices, related to Bacs payments, which can be emailed, faxed or printed and mailed. Experian Payments UK Gateway will provide processing capability for UK Bacs payments, including validation, authorisation, digital-signing, submission and report handling.
Customers using cheque, CHAPS and Bacs payments, including Direct Credits and Direct Debits (for collections), will be able to access all these payment mechanisms from within the Integrated Payments Solution. This provides a core File Manager to convert and route payments and collections instructions to the appropriate payment service.
The transition of cheque usage to electronic payments provides the TALL Group with a structured migration path for its 15,000 customers. Managing director, Martin Ruda said, "The partnership with Experian Payments is a successful one and our latest initiative enables this proven technology to link seamlessly with the payments applications our mid-corporate customers have been using for many years."
Jim Conning, Experian Payments' Managing Director, said, "The TALL Group provides us with a route to the mid-market for our Experian Payments Gateway and we are excited about the potential for this and further joint developments. This allows us to offer the benefits of Experian Payments Gateway, already proven in the largest organisations, to the established TALL Group customer base and beyond."
