Business as usual as Debitsuccess acquires Harlands Group
Debitsuccess, part of Transaction Services Group and Australasia's leading payment solution company, announced today that it has acquired United Kingdom-based direct debit billing provider Harlands Group (www.harlandsgroup.co.uk), further expanding the company's international operations.
The move is a great fit for both businesses with their focused customer service ethos and extensive Direct Debit expertise in both bank account and card transactions.
Debitsuccess is based in Auckland, New Zealand's largest city and also has offices in Australia. Operating for 20 years, the company specialises in the delivery of recurring payment solutions for a wide range of industries and processes more than 30 million transactions annually.
Debitsuccess, Chief Executive Officer Craig Marshall is delighted to announce the acquisition: "We are excited to further expand our offerings, and Harlands Group is a strong operational and cultural fit, with skills in consulting, technology and outsourced service provision. Our teams will work together to help increase growth across the entire business."
With Harlands Group now under the Debitsuccess banner, the company is further building its capacity and capability in international markets, particularly in a region that is seeing substantial growth for recurring payments and related solutions.
Located in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, Harlands Group provides business process outsourcing with particular expertise in direct debit and collections management. The business develops and implements a range of outsourcing solutions for many leading UK and European 24/7 gym chains.
Mark Collison, joint Managing Director, Harlands Group says the acquisition will open new doors for both parties: "We are looking forward to working with Debitsuccess and the wider Transaction Services Group - and we are excited about the strategic, operations and sales opportunities this new partnership will offer."
Kevin Scott, joint Managing Director, Harlands Group agrees: "This association will see a number of benefits - from support at a governance and executive level to further enhancing the value of our operations."
Last year Debitsuccess acquired the Milton Keynes-based DFC. Both Harlands Group and DFC will continue to operate as independent entities in the market.
Post acquisition, Harlands Group aims to continue to deliver the highest quality service to clients and customers as the company evolves and expands. Senior staff will continue to run the company under the new ownership structure, ensuring business as usual.
