History of allpay

Formerly known as Financial Collection Services (FCS) Ltd, allpay began providing swipecard payment facilities to facilitate revenue collection for local government and housing associations in 1994. It began with two clients and four members of staff.

Managing Director and Founder, Tony Killeen, first conceptualised the idea of electronic bill payments whilst collecting rents on behalf of the council:

"It was very frustrating working with paper-based bill payment systems. I knew there had to be a better way. This gave me the idea of using technology to speed up the process. What I used to do on paper at the council, we now do with swipe cards.

Our system provides convenience and choice for the people paying bills and greater efficiency for any organisation collecting payments."
