Customer Success Story

British Pipeline Agency conveys Bacs payments via the cloud


Founded in 1969, the British Pipeline Agency (BPA) provides engineering design, project management and operational services to the onshore oil and gas pipeline sector. Owned by BP and Shell with a turnover of £66 million, BPA employs 143 employees and has enjoyed a 13-year payments relationship with Bottomline technologies.

Moving away from labour-intensive manual cheque processing to making Bacs payments via a cloud solution, BPA chose Bottomline’s industry leading PT-X Payments and Business Solutions Suite for full compliance with Bacs payment security requirements.

Read the success story, to find out how Bottomline PT-X helped BPA to:

  • Save on payment processing time and costs associated with manual cheques
  • Control access on a per-user basis, with complete security for complete peace of mind
  • Uploading supplier payment files simply and securely in compliance with Bacs payment security requirements
  • Increase efficiency by upgrading from server-based software to cloud payments easily and smoothly.

Find out how Bottomline’s PT-X payment platform has become, according to BPA’s Purchasing Coordinator, “The best payment software I have ever worked with.”

"I have been in the BPA for 32 years and in finance for 27 years. PT-X is the best payment software I have ever worked with," says Carpenter.

Cash is the lifeblood of any organisation. Whether you need to pay or collect, there’s an easy way to do both with PT-X.
