Fensa has launched beepaidGo, an app that allows its Approved Installers to take payments for work via their mobile phone or tablet.
Once the beepaidGo app is downloaded onto a phone or tablet, installers can request payment in three steps. To start with, the installer adds a customer’s details, after which the customer will be sent a secure link via text message or email that will request payment and prompt them to complete their card details. Finally, the beepaidGo app will send a notification to the user that the customer has completed payment, after which the money will be transferred to a bank account for the next banking day.
Developed by takepayments Limited, beepaidGo is being offered to Fensa Approved Installers at an exclusive price of £5 + VAT per month
Fensa Approved Installers can also take advantage of a range of other payment platforms from takepayments including portable card payment devices that operate via a dedicated GPRS SIM card, a payment gateway that can be set up on a company’s website or a pay by link product that allows users to create and send an electronic invoice.
Director of membership Chris Beedel said: “A recent survey to our Fensa Approved Installers showed us that a number of them would like to have card payment facilities available, in order to make it easier for them to chase and receive payment and to improve cash flow.
“The beepaidGo app is the perfect way for them to do just that whilst monitoring what payments are still outstanding. We think this will really help our installers manage their finances and with it available at half price to Fensa Approved Installers, it really is exciting to see how many of them will take advantage of another industry leading benefit.”
Jodie Wilkinson, Head of Strategic Partnerships at takepayments said: “We’ve seen first-hand how effective beepaidGo can be in helping companies chase and take payments and receiving the money in their bank account the next banking day. We know Fensa Approved Installers are incredibly busy at the moment and we believe the app can help them manage their time, take payments on the go and focus on the next job.”
