London based Barclays and Checkprint (part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and payment solutions), have collaborated to bring a unique payments model to 'Sparks', a medical research charity. Checkprint has created as well as applied uniquely personalized 2-D QR codes which will save the organization some money.
'People today are looking for quick, easy and convenient payment options which is driving the demand for mobile payment solutions and charities like Sparks are fully recognising this,' said Milon Veasey, Head of Mobile Solutions Specialists at Barclays. 'Barclays Pingit provides an easy and secure way for people to make those all-important charity donations, at anytime and anywhere,' he added.
'We have worked with Checkprint for a number of years and its solutions have helped us raise a vast amount of money for medical research,' said Laura White, Head of Regional Fundraising at Sparks. 'By generating QR codes for our latest Bake for Bumps campaign Checkprint will save us, and our supporters, even more valuable time and money which we can put to good use in other areas of Sparks' work,' she added.
'We are constantly looking at ways to provide our customers with the most state-of-the-art solutions that also provide real value. Sparkss carries out fantastic work and the money it raises goes to great use,' said Martin Ruda, MD of Checkprint. 'Therefore, we are pleased to help the charity streamline its processes and save on resources.'
