Fountain integrates with Branch

Wednesday 13 September 2023 15:15 CET | News

Fountain has announced it has integrated workforce payments platform Branch, aiming to make paying new workers efficient and scalable for hiring companies. 

Companies using Fountain are now able to automatically generate the Branch's digital bank account and debit card during the application process. This is intended to give new hires an immediate way to get paid following the completion of work. Moreover, with this collaboration, operations teams can possibly save time and energy by automating the payment setup for new and current workers.

With Fountain’s integration of Branch, the main aim is for businesses to attract and retain talent, pay workers faster, as well as increase operational efficiency, with no more cost added to the business. As per the press release, Returnmates, a provider of delivery and return pickup services, is the first customer to adopt the new integration. Returnmates will now offer driver partners the option to set up a payment method before their first contracted block and receive their payments the next business day after providing services, rather than waiting up to one week.
