All of our work is tailored to individual clients' needs. Our projects for Charities are however typically either based around a review/benchmark of banking and/or merchant acquiring arrangement or assistance with a tender process.
It is common for larger charities to tender their banking and merchant acquiring contracts on a regular basis. Focus on Banking is very experienced in either managing the entire tender project and/or providing expert independent advice to an internal project team.
Not only are internal resources saved, the use of an external independent expert enables banking arrangements together with use of banking products and services to be reviewed and compared to best practice. We will often identify savings in our review process that exceed any fee we charge for managing the tender project.
In instances where a charity feels that tendering the banking or merchant acquiring contract is inappropriate we are able to review and benchmark the current arrangements.
Based on our experience of having worked with numerous charities plus our current knowledge of the industry, we are able to compare your arrangements with those that you would achieve at tender in the current market. This will enable you to negotiate from a position of strength and ultimately demonstrate value for money.
