Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and payment solutions, has created and applied uniquely personalised two dimensional QR codes for children’s medical research charity Sparks, which will save the organisation time and money.

Sparks wanted to incorporate QR codes into its welcome letters for the 2014 Bake for Bumps campaign, giving fundraisers the option of paying in their funds using the Barclays Pingit smartphone app, which has a built-in QR code scanner.

Milon Veasey, Head of Mobile Solutions Specialists at Barclays, comments:

BARCLAYS AND CHECKPRINT GENERATE MOBILE PAYMENTS WITH UNIQUELY PERSONALISED QR CODES FOR LEADING CHARITY 3“People today are looking for quick, easy and convenient payment options which is driving the demand for mobile payment solutions and charities like Sparks are fully recognising this.  Barclays Pingit provides an easy and secure way for people to make those all-important charity donations, at anytime and anywhere.”

Checkprint, who has previously provided secure, individually numbered credit slips for Sparks, was able to securely generate and apply QR codes, each with a unique reference to the individual fundraiser. By incorporating this additional personalisation, Sparks would easily be able to identify the individual fundraisers’ donations saving a labour intensive and lengthy manual reconciliation process.

Laura White, Head of Regional Fundraising at Sparks, said: “We have worked with Checkprint for a number of years and its solutions have helped us raise a vast amount of money for medical research. By generating QR codes for our latest Bake for Bumps campaign Checkprint will save us, and our supporters, even more valuable time and money which we can put to good use in other areas of Sparks’ work.”

This project marked the first time that Checkprint had generated Barclays Pingit QR codes, and it is now a standard feature on the CheckPrint Solution, the secure cheque, credit and remittance printing system, aimed at driving efficiency and saving money by allowing details to be in-filled straight from customers’ accounting systems.

Martin Ruda, Managing Director of Checkprint, said: “We are constantly looking at ways to provide our customers with the most state-of-the-art solutions that also provide real value. Sparks carries out fantastic work and the money it raises goes to great use. Therefore, we are pleased to help the charity streamline its processes and save on resources.”
