Sentenial and Payments Advisory Group are pleased to announce the accreditation of Payments Advisory Group as a Sentenial Knowledge Partner, a co-operation agreement that will see Payments Advisory Group assisting Sentenial’s prospective customers in understanding and resolving their payments challenges, with an immediate focus on assessing and reaching SEPA compliance within regulatory timelines.
As the SEPA deadline quickly approaches, many of Europe’s corporate originators are yet to fully understand the impact SEPA will have on their business and have not put in place the necessary processes and IT service solutions to ensure full compliance by February 2014.
Payments Advisory Group has extensive experience with optimising payment processes and cash & treasury management. This expertise allows them get to the bottom of complex situations quickly. Sentenial specialises in pan European SEPA solutions for banks and corporates, offering the most complete SEPA payments solutions in today’s market. These combined strengths offer hands-on solutions to assist with SEPA compliancy.
Sentenial CEO Sean Fitzgerald comments, “The Sentenial - Payments Advisory Group Knowledge Partner agreement will greatly extend Sentenial’s corporate reach. First-hand experience has proven Europe’s corporate originators are not prepared for the challenge ahead and more worrying do not fully understand the implications this will have on their business. Payments Advisory Group’s extensive footprint, SEPA experience and advisory services will ensure that information, assistance and most importantly a SEPA Rescue service will reach the wider community. Knowledge partnerships like Payments Advisory Group are pivotal.”
Payments Advisory Group Managing Partner Taco de Vries adds, “Our payments and SEPA consulting experience for corporates, banks and processors provides an excellent extension to the services Sentenial offers as a solution provider. Our business expertise and local relationships coupled with Sentenial’s hands-on experience in SEPA solution deployments, positions this partnership as a win-win for all. Payments Advisory Group already has extensive expertise in resolving payment challenges for corporates and banks, specifically around SEPA. This non-commercial partnership will allow us to also share that experience with Sentenial’s customers.”
