Boasting the largest employed field sales force in the industry; training and on-going development remains high on the agenda for RMS.

Personal Touch for Business Owners

“When it comes to small business owners, they are busy running their business and may not have thought about the potential saving they could make by switching to an independent provider” says Gareth, adding “Our customers like face to face interaction and the personal touch so we invest heavily in training and development, ensuring our customers meet with a local payments expert who is fully equipped to identify the best solution for their business. It’s all about trust and reliability, customers want to know they are getting a fair deal and a reliable service and that we are there to help when things don’t go wrong”.
