London, UK – BrightOffice, part of ClearCourse, provides bespoke CRM software for consumer and business lenders, training providers, finance brokers and collection agencies.
Ordo’s cloud native Open Banking as a Service payments platform enables businesses to collect payment instantly, direct from a customer’s bank account, at low cost and offers a fully hosted and managed plug and play white label service.
BrightOffice’s new integration with Ordo allows Broker and Lender CRM users to request a single payment via Open Banking from their customers. An email is then sent with a link to Ordo, and once a payment has been made a receipt is automatically added to the customer’s ledger.
Open Banking is the simple, swift and secure way CRM platforms can add value for their customers, giving them a boost to their cash flow with real time payments, up to the minute information via web hooks, and lower cost payment collection and reconciliation efficiencies. Being able to offer these benefits to business users really differentiates BrightOffice’s proposition.
BrightOffice was impressed by the simplicity of Ordo integration and the quality of support from the Ordo team during the process.
Everyone we dealt with at Ordo, Francis, Mike, and Toby, were all very friendly and helped to keep us on track. They were always available to assist us if we had any questions. We look forward to our next Ordo integration for the new VRP (Variable Recurring Payments) functionality, which we’ll be integrating next.
We’re thrilled to be partnering with Ordo to bring instant Open Banking payments to our offering, both for pay out of loans to, and managed repayments from, our customers. All the team at Ordo were great to work with and the integration process was quick and easy with their expert guidance; they also worked with our CRM partner, BrightOffice, to ensure comprehensive assistance was given at every turn. As the cost of living crisis continues, customers need affordable credit where repayments are constantly being tailored to their individual affordability, and that’s what this partnership brings. Working with Ordo means our customers can feel in control of their money and always have an up to date position of where they are at.
Ordo’s ‘Payments-as-a-Service’ offering, delivers fully managed, white-labelled, turn-key solutions for Open Banking payments including Request to Pay, E-Commerce, QR Code and the very latest VRP enabled services. Ordo’s highly secure service, designed and built by payments experts, provides an array of frictionless payments solutions that are easier than ever for your customers to use, and more cost effective than traditional payment methods.
Ordo’s highly secure, cloud-native, open banking enabled payments platform provides businesses large and small with low cost, real-time and easy to use e-commerce, Point of Sale, invoice and contact centre payments direct from their customer’s bank accounts into their own bank accounts. Businesses can access the Ordo platform in a number of ways: though an Ordo Merchant Acquirer/PSP payments partner, via Ordo’s modern APIs, and for smaller businesses, through our integrations with QuickBooks, Sage, and Xero accounting software or directly via Ordo’s web/app interfaces.
Ordo’s services are fully managed and hosted, but customisable to deliver a business’s brand look and feel to their paying customers without the need to build bespoke payment journeys and customer management services. Ordo does all this for you.
Ordo also uses open banking payments to enable refunds and secure customer pay outs as well as account validation services.
Ordo was founded by the former management team of the UK’s Faster Payments Scheme in 2018 to use open banking payments to provide businesses with a much-needed alternative to slow, high-cost card payments and insecure direct bank payments. Ordo is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority as a Payments Institution for Account Information Services and Payment Initiation Services (FRN 836070). Ordo is backed by private investors, Nationwide Building Society Ventures and CGI, the global IT services business.
