Public Services and Government
Credit, debit and Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments are core to public service companies and local government entities. Therefore, it is important to understand the rules set out by Visa, MasterCard and others, to minimize fees and properly structure fee recovery from customers through convenience fees or surcharges. Proper set up can reduce unnecessary fees by 40 percent or more. Additionally, MSP Consulting works with clients to integrate any existing core operating software used by the institution.
Public institutions often contain multiple departments that represent a variety of needs – therefore requiring a range of solutions.
