The TALL Group of Companies Supports Metro Bank’s Launch

10 August 2010

Secure payments specialist The TALL Group of Companies is assisting Metro Bank, the first new bank to open on the UK high street in over 100 years.

Metro Bank, which opened its first store in Holborn on 29th July and has a second store set to open Cromwell Road, Earls Court in September, is being supported by the TALL Group for its secure cheque and credit payments requirements.

Checkprint Solution, the TALL Group’s award winning cheque printing software, is installed to enable Metro Bank to produce uniquely personalised and encoded cheque books, in-store, while the customer waits. This forms part of Metro Banks ‘rapid account opening procedure’ that provides prompt issuance of cheque books, credit books, bank cards within 15 minutes of opening the account.

Checkprint Banking Assistant, the TALL Group’s Cheque and Cash deposit management system, will be integrated for back office scanning of in-clearing cheques and branch received cheques at launch.

In addition to this, the TALL Group will be providing standard cheque and credit books and also a special cheque and credit service for Metro Bank’s corporate customers.

Martin Ruda, managing director of The TALL Group of Companies commented: “This is an exciting time for high street banking and we are proud to have been selected by Metro Bank as its partner in this critical element of tangible customer service. Those customers who want and need cheque and credit books will receive an unparalleled service which will be a significant new benchmark for UK banking.”

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer of Metro Bank said: “We selected Tall Group as they offer the best cheque deposit management system in the industry, and they will help us deliver the best service possible for our customers.”
