Our work with housing associations typically focuses on identifying cost savings in banking, bill collection and card acquiring arrangements.
The review process will identify all the areas where savings can be made to enable negotiations to take place with your main bank and your card acquirer. We can also undertake an in-depth analysis of your arrangements for the collection of funds over Post Office, PayPoint and Payzone counters - this will enable you negotiate improved terms with either Santander, allpay Ltd or The Co-operative Bank plc.
When a tender process is appropriate we are able to provide specialist assistance at each stage of the tender project. We have extensive experience in managing tenders for banking, card acquiring and rent collection (i.e. Santander/allpay.net/Co-op Bank) contracts.
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.
