Fundtech has announced that Assist DD has gone live with its Bacs payment solution, Bacsactive-IP. Assist DD was created when land agent Fowler Fortescue spun off its collections and direct debit operations as a stand-alone business. Fundtech’s automated Bacs payment solution was brought on board to help launch the business, delivering growth and stability.
Assist DD’s requirements for the solution included a good support network and the ability to onboard new clients quickly as the business grew. This was particularly important as any interruption in the collection of rent payments could disrupt the payment arrangements tenants had made.
