Our story

We established Annecto in 2012 with the specific purpose of connecting independent businesses in the UK with market leading card payment and short-term financing solutions. In this time, we’ve experienced significant growth and today are a preferred partner to more than 6,500 like-minded companies. With a solid understanding of the challenges faced by our customers, we take pride in providing them with the tools that enable them to focus on the priorities of their businesses.

What we do

 

Annecto was created to provide independent  businesses that want to accept and process credit and debit card payments with market leading solutions.

We have a solid understanding of our customer’s sales channel requirements and pride ourselves in bringing competitive pricing and exemplary levels of customer service to the market.

Furthermore, our leading-edge card acceptance capabilities enable our customers to take payments from their customers across all their sales channels - instore, online or over the phone.

We truly believe in going on a journey with our customers and key to this is the establishment of long lasting relationships. With this in mind, we have expanded our product offerings and now also support our customers with a range of short-term financing solutions that enable them to meet their business objectives, whether they be focused on growth, investing in capital equipment or easing of temporary cash flow challenges.

The funding has kept me going when times have been tough, for example when business was affected by roadworks outside the take-away and when the road was flooded by the sea. It has also improved my purchasing power enabling me to get stock from the mainland, which is cheaper, but you have to buy in large quantities and pay cash on delivery……….You just never know what’s round the corner, but knowing I can get a business cash advance quickly and easily is a real comfort.

Everything was explained fully and the processes were easy to understand, especially important as we have no experience of this. Annecto’s very competitive charges have been an additional surprise. It’s good, it really works and it’s so easy!

Changing to Annecto has resulted in reduced fees for the theatre. Having Annecto on board is a great advantage and the helpline is perfect.

I chose Annecto as they are always efficient, helpful and really do cater for my needs. Everything from the initial consultation to installation is painless and very quick, allowing me to concentrate on running my business. Their rates are the best out there and the terminals are modern and up to date with the latest technology allowing contactless, mail order sales and Apple Pay. I cannot recommend my Annecto Account Manager enough who has been supporting me with my growing businesses.

We first met with Annecto very shortly after the company was established and they are now unquestionably one of Meakins top customers. Their rapid expansion has often presented challenges to us, but their willingness to work collaboratively has made it fun to do business with them. They are highly professional in their approach and we are very proud to be associated with Kevin Hayler and his team.
