Bottomline Technologies, a provider of cloud-based payment, invoice and banking solutions, has announced that Hessel, an international relocation expense management specialist, has increased its ability to process payments securely and efficiently by selecting Bottomline's payments software.
Bottomline Technologies has enabled Hessel to process more than £30 million worth of payments more effectively while reducing operational risk.
Hessel was originally using a PC-based system, PayAway, before choosing Bottomline Technologies. With this legacy system due to decommission at the end of 2013, Hessel required a robust, secure payments solution that would scale with the expanding business, meeting its complex multinational transaction needs.
The Bottomline payment platform will aim to enable Hessel to process payments across multiple locations, for numerous users on behalf of global companies that are relocating their talent worldwide.
Geoff Davidson, technical director at Hessel Group, comments: "Since 2011, Hessel has nearly doubled the volumes of money it pays out, from £17.8 million to £30.2 million in 2013. As such, we required a payments solution that could both scale with our business and provide the highest level of security, which is paramount to the success of our company.
"Further to the anticipated time saving, the Bottomline solution will reduce our cost base and enable us to be more agile. With enhanced security, efficiencies and scalability, we expect the Bottomline solution to be a worthwhile investment that will secure the future of the company."
