Paymentsense launches new rewards portal for SMEs
Posted by emma.critchley | 18 April
This week, Paymentsense, Europe’s largest merchant service provider, launched Plus. It's the new rewards programme providing their customers with access to a wide range of discounts and benefits, just for being a customer.
Marketing, accountancy services and computer security costs are often absorbed by large department budgets in big corporates, but for many SME businesses there are no available budget pots for such essentials. These small, but vital operational costs can mount up, eat into profit margins and cause financial strain, especially in the early stages of a new business.
Paymentsense recognised the need to support their customers by creating a rewards programme that not only takes some of the stress out of running a small business, but also gives their loyal customers a chance to unwind from the stresses of being a business owner.
In response to customer needs, Plus includes a range of “Business Rewards” such as, 70% off QuickBooks accounting software, 50% off Kaspersky Labs security software, discounts on a range of online business courses such as Google Analytics and YouTube marketing, but it doesn’t end there.
Paymentsense also appreciate that although their customers are busy, self-employed individuals, they need opportunities that allow them to switch off from being a business owner. Therefore the portal also includes a range of “Leisure Rewards” such as 2 for 1 on Great British Days Out, a free 12-month Gourmet Society membership, up to 70% off hotels and 50% off Wuaki.tv movies, to name a few.
Niyati Joshi, Product Innovation Manager at Paymentsense comments,
“We are constantly looking for new products and services to improve the value we offer our customers and the launch of Plus represents a proud moment for all involved in the product. The wide range of rewards from well-known brands are not only relevant in the lives of our customers professionally and personally but, they cannot be found anywhere else, making the programme truly unique.”
The Plus rewards programme is being facilitated by TLC Marketing UK in partnership with Paymentsense. They are currently working together on an adaptation for the Republic of Ireland.
