Independent Living Fund Scotland is a Scottish government public body, and when changes in Bacs security were introduced, it meant an upgrade to their payment system was required.
Previously processing payments via on-premise software, ILF Scotland switched to a Bacs-approved cloud-based payments solution – eliminating concerns regarding hardware reliability, software and security changes. It was also important that their new solution should support government cloud policies, designed to provide sufficient resilience, information security management and compliance, barriers between different customers.
Despite tight timescales, the deployment of Bottomline PT-X for ILF Scotland’s payments processing proved to be straightforward, providing the organisation with:
- A fully compliant Bacs-approved payments system, with the latest security requirements from automated updates
- Seamless transition from cumbersome on-premise payments software to an agile cloud-based payment platform
- Secure cloud-based payment processing for controlled, anywhere, anytime access
Find out how PT-X, Bottomline’s fully compliant, Bacs-approved platform has helped ILF Scotland migrate their payment processes securely to the cloud.
"Everyone agrees that the cloud offers numerous possibilities which server-based technologies do not," says Alexander. "We follow government cloud policies which mirror what the UK government does."
