Checkprint & Metro Bank renew significant contract


Checkprint, part of the TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure printed and electronic payment solutions, has signed a contract renewal with Metro Bank for cheque services. The decade-long partnership, which goes back to 2010 when Metro Bank was the first new high street bank to open its doors in the UK for over 100 years, has been extended for a further  six years.

The contract enables Metro Bank to continue to instantly issue chequebooks to all new account holders, within minutes of them entering the store. Metro Bank is one of the only providers of instantly issued chequebooks on the high street and will look to Checkprint to continue to provide replenishment books for both personal and business customers, from the firm’s fully accredited site in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

Martin Ruda, Managing Director of Checkprint, said: “It’s a tremendously positive partnership and Metro Bank are a great team to work with. The dynamic between both companies is interactive on both sides, as we both adopt more strategic positions in our markets. Metro Bank is constantly looking to evolve, and likewise, we’re always focussed on innovation and bringing new products and services to market.”

Tamsin Byrne, Metro Bank’s Director of Distribution Delivery, said: “The contract renewal is testament to the trusted and successful relationship between Metro Bank and Checkprint. Metro Bank’s commitment to providing a stand-out customer experience is underpinned with a number of key deliverables, including the ability to instantly issue chequebooks to all new account holders if they would like one. Since 2010, Checkprint has worked with Metro Bank to help us provide this and other innovative services to our customers. It’s an exciting time for both companies, who have immense respect for each other’s expertise and processes, and long may that continue.”
