(PRWEB UK) 25 December 2012
SmartDebit, the UK’s leading Direct Debit Bureau has responded to the release of a new app that allows users to keep track of their Direct Debit payments. With over 72 percent of residents in the UK paying utility and household bills by Direct Debit, the app is expected to be met by high demand.
The design allows users to list all Direct Debit payments together alongside their details including payment date and exact amount. There is also a feature that sends automated reminders before a payment is taken and to alert the user if there is not enough money to make the transaction. Finally, the summary page allows an overall total that has left the account to be seen as well as the outstanding amount. No further payments or changes can be made via the app in order to protect the account from security breaches.
Surrey-based SmartDebit have over 14 years’ experience in the Direct Debit industry, providing the facility for organisations across the UK to collect payments via Direct Debit.
A spokesperson from SmartDebit commented, “Smartphones have become increasingly important in our everyday lives over the past few years, and this new app is another useful tool that will reach a wide audience of people. It allows you to stay on top of your finances and clearly see your outgoing transactions without having to log in online or search through detailed bank statements. Direct Debits allow payments to be made easily and quickly in a safe and secure manner. This app sticks to that ethos by providing no option to change, cancel or access to the users bank account.”
