Fintech scale-up AccessPay is expanding its partner network in 2021.

The Manchester firm is working with several software specialists and re-sellers to expand market penetration and diversify revenue streams, it said.

Muzulu, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) consultancy is the latest partner to sign up, alongside the likes of Gentrack, Xperience and Datel.

Together AccessPay and Muzulu will deliver an integrated solution to select clients who are using IFS Applications as their back-office system.

Atrial partnership in 2020 saw the firms collaborate on a multi-bank solution for Globeleq, the leading independent power producer in Africa.

AccessPay, which boasts customers including ITV, AA and global manufacturer NSG, provides the digital connection between a business’s back office systems and their bank.

The platform processes 200 million individual transactions every year for its more than 1,000 customers across the UK and Europe.

The SAAS platform also provides real-time statement delivery and format transformation for accurate cash visibility and reconciliation.

Head of Partner and Market Development at AccessPay James Stockton said: “This marks a new phase in our journey to provide end-to-end payment and cash management solutions.

“Our partner approach, with industry leaders like Muzulu, offers their customer-base a fully integrated solution.

“Muzulu has seen the additional benefits that AccessPay can bring to their customers, both present and future, and we are excited to be partnering with such a high calibre consultancy.”

Hamish Johnson, director of Muzulu, added: “Muzulu is pleased to announce an absolutely fantastic partnership with AccessPay.

“This partnership allows our customers to have a much stronger business solution with their global banking providers.

“From payment collection and transmission through to bank reconciliation this partnership helps Muzulu to deliver best practice and confidence to CFOs – ensuring cash flows are optimised and streamlined.”
