Our salary deduction technology scheme, SmartTech™, allows employees to instantly purchase the latest technology without having to worry about exorbitant credit card fees and charges.
Whether an employee faces the need to urgently replace white goods or is looking for the latest Fitbit or Macbook, employees can choose from over 5000 products from our trusted partner Currys PC world and pay conveniently via deductions to their net salary.
This simple, admin-free solution has been widely popular among Reward Gateway clients, but many have told us that they would like a finance option, meaning payments by the employer can be made over an agreed period of time, rather than footing an upfront cost which can create cashflow issues for many businesses.
We completely understand this concern and have been working over the last several months to find a suitable finance partner for SmartTech™.
Reward Gateway is proud to announce its new partnership with Akira Financial Limited. Our new partnership with Akira means that clients can spread the costs of employee purchases and therefore match the expenditure to the income received from employees; making the purchases cash neutral to the business.
Akira Financial was established in 2006 to provide specific financing for the HR community. Whilst Akira has grown into other areas of finance, its roots firmly remain in employee benefits. Akira has financed over £110m of assets all using its own balance sheet.
For more information on the Akira financing option for SmartTech™, please speak to one of our Client Success Managers who will be happy to help.
