Home Retail Group appoints Atos to run business account card

The Home Retail Group (HRG) has signed a four-year agreement with Atos, an international IT services company, for the implementation of a business account scheme to allow SME business customers to purchase goods and services in-store, online and via Argos Direct. The new For Business account card will be launched by HRG’s business to business division, Argos for Business.

Danny Clenaghan, Managing Director of Argos for Business said: “We are committed to providing excellent service to our customers and we are excited to extend this service to the SME market. We are confident that Atos will deliver this service to the excellent standard our customers expect. The For Business account allows businesses instant access to over 35,000 product lines at great value prices, supported by excellent account management tools.”

Iain Kingsley, SVP for Hi-Tech Transactional Services in the UK Atos, said: “We are delighted to add Home Retail Group to our client list, which extends our business account scheme in the retail sector. We have developed an excellent offering in payment services and this contract is further evidence that they can be adapted and tailored to meet the needs of different clients to help them attract business customers, drive sales and therefore gain competitive advantage.”

Atos, a leader in transaction services, will be providing full management of the business account card for small to medium enterprises in the UK and providing an end to end service from application to payment. The scheme will commence in April with a trial across a region of Argos stores.

The on-line account support facility will allow customers to manage their account, control costs and access various management information tools including a line item detail invoice archive.
