BluePay and Ankota® Partner to Offer Credit Card Transaction Services to Homecare Organizations
NAPERVILLE, IL (October 5, 2017) – BluePay, a leading provider of technology-enabled credit card processing solutions, announced today its partnership with Ankota® to integrate its award-winning payment technology with Ankota’s home care agency management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. The integration will enable agencies to improve patient relationships and enhance revenue by delivering a complete solution for agency management, billing and payment collection.
The new Ankota solution delivers robust functionality including: online client intake, scheduling, care plans, caregiver tracking via telephony and mobile/GPS, point-of-care documentation, a family mobile application, care transitions and remote patient monitoring. With BluePay, Ankota clients will be better positioned to increase their revenue and create a stronger customer relationship.
The integration allows clients to process credit card payments directly within the Ankota interface. No account numbers are stored by Ankota, minimizing the client’s PCI scope and costs. The robust payment solution also provides functionality for automated recurring payments and comprehensive reporting all at very low transaction costs.
Ken Accardi, Ankota CEO, said, “We are very excited to partner with BluePay. This relationship will allow Ankota homecare agency clients to enhance and optimize revenue and be more competitive through the provision of a safe and secure way to accept payments.
