Ultra Electronics AEP Offers BACS Payments SaaS Solution on G-Cloud 6 Framework

09 FEBRUARY 2015

Ultra Electronics AEP announces its PayGate™ Online secure payments processing service is now available to public sector organisations via the government’s Digital Marketplace.

Public sector organisations can now purchase AEP’s innovative secure online payments processing service, PayGate™ Online, with advantageous Software as a Service (SaaS) pricing, after AEP announced that the company has been accepted onto the UK government’s G-Cloud 6 Framework.

The framework has been created to save public sector organisations and suppliers’ time and money when embarking on IT programmes involving procurement. G-Cloud is different from other frameworks as it allows public sector organisations to pay for services as they use them, rather than being tied to inflexible, long-term contracts. 

AEP’s BACS approved PayGate Online is a cloud-based payments service which allows the user to safely and securely submit payments and transaction data for BACS Direct Credit, Faster Payments and Direct Debit, all via a dedicated web portal. PayGate Online is fully RTI compliant, easy to use, encrypts data in transit, has built in checks to detect errors and is backed by a UK support desk, with over 30 years customer support.

Nick Newman, Payments Business Manager at AEP, commented: “PayGate Online is a simple alternative to installed software solutions and outsourcing to BACS and payroll bureaux. AEP is the only BACS Approved Software supplier to also develop and manufacture its own Hardware Security Module (HSM), PayGate HSM, providing the highest level of security available for payment transactions”. # ENDS #About Ultra Electronics AEP
