Direct Debit Control Centre app



Help your customers take control of their Direct Debit payments

One of the most frequently cited reasons for not using Direct Debit is ‘loss of control of finances’.

The Direct Debit Control Centre app has been designed to make sure bill payers can stay on top of their automated bill payments putting them back in control.

The app, available free to iPhone and Android users, allows users to list all their Direct Debits together along with payment dates, amounts and details of what they’re for.

Payment date reminders can be set up making it easy for bill payers to ensure they have enough money in their account to cover the cost. So, if a Direct Debit is due and money is a bit tight, the alert can give users the chance and the time to make alternative arrangements to meet their commitments.

The Direct Debit Control Centre also features a monthly overview screen, which instantly shows the total amount of Direct Debits in place for that month, together with a summary of how much is left to go out.

Users can group their Direct Debits into categories, so, for example, all insurance Direct Debits or all utility bill payments can be placed together for easy viewing.

Why not offer the Direct Debit Control Centre app to your customers, enabling them to easily monitor their Direct Debit commitments and quickly access important financial information, wherever they are.
