Bytes Digital Conducts A Duplicate Payments Review

The Client

Bytes Digital are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of fixed, mobile and digital communications for business. Since they were founded in 2013, they have been on a big journey. From business mobiles to 4G WiFi, fixed line connectivity, hosted telephone systems and even web design.

The Challenge

Duplicate payments can be a major issue for any business – but especially for organisations with a substantial supplier base. The more suppliers that a company has, the bigger this problem may be. At Bytes Digital they wanted to understand if they were making any duplicated payments across their supplier base. Especially within the current climate, making sure that there aren’t paying any unnecessary payments is crucial.

The Solution

Liberata has a tried and tested Duplicate Payment Recovery Service that has benefitted local authorities, Central Government bodies and private sector organisations. The solution is offered on a “risk and reward” basis as a stand-alone service or as a part of a wider Finance and Accounting partnership. Put simply, this is a two stage service – we identify any overspend and then we recover the money for you. The actual process involves the use of bespoke algorithms within our data matching engine to identify the duplicates that people often miss.

The Benefits

  • 9 days from initial conversation to review being completed, with very little interaction needed from Bytes Digital to perform the review
  • Due to no duplicate payments being identified there was no charge from Liberata
  • Bytes Digital had their minds put at ease as no duplicate payments were identified

“We had an approach from Liberata about conducting a duplicate payments review, as a responsible business we wanted to ensure that duplicate payments wasn’t an issue for our business and on the basis it was a risk-free review we agreed. From start to finish the communication from Liberata was fantastic, we were extremely satisfied with how quick and efficient the process was, within 9 days and with very little commitment on our part the review was completed and it identified there were no duplicate payments, this put our minds at ease that our processes were working.”

Eastleigh Borough Council has worked with Liberata for a number of years who undertake the council's empty home reviews, and I must say, their service exceeded all expectations. From start to finish, they demonstrated professionalism, efficiency, and a genuine commitment to addressing this critical issue in our community. Thanks to Liberata, the council has been able to maximise our empty home bonus year on year. This positive impact on our community cannot be overstated.

The RV Finder service from Liberata has really helped us ensure that our data is as accurate as possible and, when the VOA has processed the outstanding cases, I fully expect to see more than £1,000,000 of additional RV. The “risk and reward” model works well and the Council only has to pay for their success and the service is something that we will use on a regular basis.
