Plans to expand by a third
Handepay to challenge payments rivals
The team, headed by Andy Ferguson, aims to grow the company’s Scottish customer base by 33% by the end of 2017.
Mr Ferguson, based in Kinross, has spent 20 years in the card payment industry and will be targeting the independent market, competing with the likes of iZettle.
Handepay, headquartered in Merseyside, supports 28,000 independent UK businesses. In 2015 it partnered with a global payment acquirer and payment service provider.
Mark Latham, Handepay director, says: “While we’ve had a business presence, and customers, in Scotland for 10 years now, this is the first time that we’ve had a dedicated team that is permanently based there.”
Mr Ferguson, adds: “With our growing team of experienced and professional people, I’m confident that we’ll more than surpass our goals.”
