Finwise Migration This Weekend
Debt Counsellors who make use of the Finwise software package (which works with the DC Partner Payment Distribution Agency) should note that they will not be able to make use of the software this weekend.
‘Debt Counsellors make use of software to help track the needs of their clients’
Debt Counsellors make use of software to help track the needs of their clients, the next necessary steps in the consumers’ journey through debt review and also to work out proposals to credit providers. Some Debt Counsellors make use of simple general purpose programs like Word and Excel while others make use of industry-specific targeted software like Finwise.
No Overtime This Weekend
The software suite, which is accessed online, will be unavailable this weekend from Friday evening, 6pm (22nd) till Monday morning 5am (25th).
Finwise is moving from one to another hosting firm and DC Partner and Finwise will be doing some server maintenance and testing as they do so over the weekend.
