“Through this strategic collaboration, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists will have the ability to negotiate more competitive credit card processing rates for the small to mid-size businesses that are members of their organization,” SCRS wrote in a news release. “Business owners will be able to expand their payment processing services through innovative software solutions and increase cash flow. Payscape will also offer members educational resources and personalized consultation.”
Case studies on Payscape’s website show it helping a variety of small businesses. The company’s news releases reference working with other skilled trade associations, including truckers and air conditioning contractors.
Payscape enterprise sales Vice President John Mills said in a statement his company was excited to work with SCRS.
“Given their initiative to provide members trusted sources and advanced learning, we aim to enhance their financial technology portfolio and hope to progress both our organizations,” Mills said in a statement.
SCRS said Payscape will offer a “highly competitive bid” and “free in-depth comparison” tailored to each one of the organization’s members. The association represents 6,000 collision repair businesses directly and through 38 affiliate associations.
Through April 30, if Payscape can’t match or beat the member’s current credit card processing cost, it’ll “give them a limited-time offer of a $100.00 gift card and the peace of mind of knowing they are engaged in a great deal,” according to SCRS.
Studies of SCRS members found potential savings of more than $340 a month by using Payscape, more than $12,000 over three years, the trade group reported.
“SCRS is actively engaged in developing solutions to address the challenges and costs of running a business in today’s environment,” SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg said in a statement. “We are certain that through partnerships such as the one with Payscape, that the association will be able to help many of our members lower operational costs associated with payment processing, add to their bottom line, and increase the already valuable return on investment business experience through SCRS membership.”
