A highly efficient and effective financial payment and administration solution for local authorities and municipalities has been developed through the recent merger of two companies.
This system will make the payment of rates, water and electricity bills simpler and faster for consumers, and the collection of these funds easier for the institutions concerned. The new system requires no data capturing, caters to both credit and debit order payments, and operates on a number of portals.
This new system is the result of the recent merger of Bytes Technology Group (BTG) and Altech, and the subsequent establishment of the Technology Multimedia Telecoms (TMT) Division of Altron. Bytes Universal Systems (BUS), a division of BTG, and Altech NuPay joined forces after unique synergies between the BUS South African Municipal Resource Administration System’s (SAMRAS) backend technology and NuPay’s payment solutions were identified.
“By combining the two, we are able to offer a comprehensive solution that streamlines our clients’ financial processes. Municipalities are able to receive payments from ratepayers through NuPay and have these payments fed directly into their backend financial system, ”says BUS’s General Manager for SAMRAS and Microsoft Technical Services (MTS) Brian Brougham-Cook.
