Annecto UK – AZTEC

Annecto UK – AZTEC

The Challenge:

Annecto UK provide independent merchants with card payment facilities. They were struggling to take on new merchants due to their inherently manual boarding process which was slow, clunky and inefficient – taking several days before a merchant could accept card transactions. Documents exchanged with suppliers had to be rekeyed, leading to error and delays. This situation was a far cry from Annecto’s long-term vision of providing a merchant with card payment facilities within 24 hours.

The Solution:

ECS designed and built AZTEC – a fully automated, efficient system which runs 24/7. AZTEC addresses Annecto’s immediate needs and has set the foundations for future streamlining of their other business processes.

The Benefits:

ECS has streamlined Annecto’s business process and reduced the time taken to activate a new merchant account by over 3 days. Employees are no longer required to rekey data, removing the need to retrain staff and providing a fully integrated solution.

What they said

Business and Data Analyst, Annecto UK
Having come to the API project late and only having a limited knowledge of the technology, I found Kirit and his colleagues to be very patient and helpful right from the start. Always supportive and able to explain procedures and requirements clearly and assist wherever possible.
Kirit was always on hand to answer any queries and also supported us when dealing with a Third Party that at times was difficult, compounded by a very intense project. Kirit would lead and also help from a background perspective at various times and was instrumental in allowing Annecto UK to achieve its goals.
The API and core system Kirit helped in establishing has meant we now have a direct link with our third party and has expedited a process that was very elongated. This has allowed us to increase our productivity and also enables us to have full sight of our work streams and pipeline. With the possibility of further linking to other partners.  
As technology moves at a pace so will the need of clients, customers and partners. Any future projects of this nature or potential plans to grow the business with the aid of Information Technology will require expert guidance and build quality. With that in mind, I would have no hesitation in engaging with Kirit and ECS again.
