Why Choose Granite Payment Alliance?
Our program is representative of our extensive organizational history in bank card management, organizational-wide expertise and in-market capabilities—customized for each client to produce superior customer satisfaction, product margins and market share – across all lines of business. With Granite Payment Alliance as a financial partner, we will direct our mutual resources to generate the long-term profitability of a merchant portfolio on behalf of your institution.
Core Deposit Generation: Our assumption of co-responsibility for the success of Merchant Services will lead to the acquisition and retention of low-cost, core deposits from new and current business accounts.
Market Growth Potential: A vibrant Merchant Card program can provide the basis for accelerated market development and client growth.
Reduction of Credit Risk: As one institutional option, Granite Payment Alliance can fully assume the credit, customer and transactional liability associated with a traditional merchant card portfolio.
Annuitized Fee Income: A bank can earn an enhanced revenue stream, as non-interest, non-risk income on an “annuitized” basis.
Cross-Sell Portal for Banking Services: The dominance of a successful Merchant portfolio, partnered with Granite Payment Alliance as a proven driver of product quality, growth and employee focus, will further enhance an institution’s ability to cross-sell other financial services from its branch distribution, lending and customer support channels.
Competitive Assistance in Local Market: As we are an independent service provider and not part of a financial services conglomerate or national bank attempting inroads in your local territory, we can proactively assist your organization in attracting high-value account relationships and avoid account encroachment.
Staff Training in Promoting Merchant Accounts: Our on-site managers will effectively train all levels of employees in sales and prospecting techniques, using incentives to transform your Merchant portfolio into a dynamic engine of profitable and institutional success.
