Contingency planning and disaster recovery
What if the worst should happen?
Systems failure, extortion, staff problems, fire, power problems, communications failure, terrorism – research states that over 80% of businesses fail to recover from a disaster affecting their payment processing.
A failure in Direct Debit processing can impact on payroll, cash flow and customer relations, leading to negative publicity and unaffordable repairs.
Are you covered in case of systems failure? If you’d prefer to outsource your disaster recovery, SmartDebit can help.
If you're operating a Direct Debit service in-house, you can take advantage of our service by 'linking' your OIN/SUN to our Direct Debit Bureau (B08032): simply instruct your bank's BACS Liaison department.
Charges include a low set up fee, small monthly fee, plus flat fees for any processing. Please email us for costs.
