FENSA has recently introduced beepaidGo, a new app that allows FENSA Approved Installers to take payments for work via their mobile phone or tablet, helping them to manage their finances more efficiently and to improve cash flow.
beepaidGo has been launched following an increasing number of calls from installers for a more up to date and faster way of accepting payments, one that allows them to minimise unnecessary and time consuming paperwork, so that they can put more of a focus on winning additional work and growing their business.
Developed by takepayments Limited, beepaidGo is being offered to FENSA Approved Installers at an exclusive price of just £5 + VAT per month. It is the latest in a series of exciting new initiatives from the glazing competency scheme, designed to make life easier for busy installers and to raise standards of professionalism in the process.
Once the beepaidGo app is downloaded onto a phone or tablet, installers can request payment in three easy steps. To start with, the installer simply 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*.
In addition to the new mobile app, FENSA Approved Installers can also take advantage of a range of other payment platforms from takepayments Limited, 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 even a pay by link product that allows users to create and send an electronic invoice.
Chris Beedel, FENSA Director of Membership, commented: “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 Limited, said: “We saw glazing as an ideal sector where the beepaidGo app could really help installation companies on a day to day basis and so we’re delighted to have partnered with FENSA as the biggest name in the industry.”
“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.”
