Brighouse-based Yorkshire Payments has scored a hat-trick of new clients by securing three new contracts with local companies.

The award-winning firm will be working with Hebden Bridge storage experts, Craggs Country Business Park, fellow Brighouse business, Arrow Coaches, and Honley-based Bronte Water.

Arrow Coaches’ director, Julie Jessop, said: “With Yorkshire Payments’ new virtual terminal we’ve actually managed to significantly reduce our costs and have the huge benefit of no longer being tied to a card machine.

“We can now take payments anywhere, which being a coach operator, is obviously very useful.

“Having a local Yorkshire provider was also an appealing prospect as we like to buy local.

“We also no longer have to deal with call centre queues - we have one point of contact and feel like a valued customer.”

Dan Holmes, director at Craggs Country Business Park, said: “The self-storage and managed office space areas of our business have been experiencing good growth and we needed to leave outmoded payment methods like cheques behind. We were looking for a cutting edge virtual payment platform and after a pretty keenly fought three-way pitch it was Yorkshire Payments that clearly stood out.

Founder and managing director of Yorkshire Payments, James Howard, said: “We’re proud to be Yorkshire and support local companies.

“We’ve grown substantially since our formation in 2011 but we’re not just about quick wins, we want to develop long-term relationships, such as these with fellow local companies, and beyond.”
