Outsourcing solution provider, Capita, is integrating Barclays Pingit to enable customers in both the private and public sectors receive payments made via mobile app.
310 UK organizations that use Capita’s payment services will be able to offer their customers Pingit as an alternative to Internet and telephone payments.
Council tax, rent or waste collection services can now all be paid by scanning the QR code that is printed on the bill with a smartphone, tablet or at a QR scanning ATM that is available at 150 Barclays. Students will be able to pay for course fees and education expenses via phones.
Pingit will update systems of details of who has paid for what automatically making it easier to track payments.
Jon Peart, payments director, of software services business Capita, says “it is important that we provide our clients with payment solutions that allow their customers to make payments in the way they want to. Adding Pingit to our range of mobile payment solutions was an obvious choice for us and we look forward to rolling out additional functionality later this year.”
