In less than 30 minutes I was set up and ready to make my first payment. 

Established in 1995, Harten Group is one of Europe’s leading providers of specialist consultancy support for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.

With over 2000 highly qualified specialists in their network, Harten Group is able to respond rapidly to client requests, from the deployment  of a single consultant on a contract basis to fielding a full team of consultants to address a bigger challenge.

Based in Cambridge, UK, their position within the largest cluster of biotech and pharmaceutical companies in Europe has enabled them to be the local partner of choice for many pharmaceutical, biotech and medtech global organisations seeking entry to and support within the EMA region.

Working with international clients on a regular basis Vernon Harten-Ash, Managing Director of Harten Group, had both euro and dollar currency accounts and used his bank to transfer money between his accounts.  He knew there were other options available and had explored moving away from his bank, but with limited time and resource he was unsure whether the inconvenience and time involved would outweigh the economic benefits of changing.

However, after receiving a recommendation from his Accountant of over 10 years Vernon decided to try Money Mover.  He commented, “Because my Accountant is such a trusted advisor it certainly gave me the confidence to go ahead and try Money Mover”.

Vernon had looked at using other international payment providers but was irritated by the often complicated websites and functionality that was not user friendly.

Once on the Money Mover website he found it attractive, clean and simple.  With a quick and easy sign up process and once registered a dashboard which provides all the information you need to manage your payments and recipients quickly and easily. The application also keeps you informed at every step of your payment – so you know where your money is, at all times.

Vernon commented, “In the first instance I had the support team at Money Mover carry out a payments review.  They analysed a couple of my previous foreign exchange payments and showed me how much I could save using Money Mover.  It convinced me the economic benefits were definitely worth it!”.

The support and ease of use were also key factors in Vernon’s decision to change from using his bank to Money Mover.  He explained, “In less than 30 minutes I was set up and ready to make my first payment.  There was always a member of the team available to guide me through the whole process and answer my questions at every step of the way.  Nothing was too much trouble”.

He concluded, “I will certainly be continuing to use Money Mover in the future and would definitely recommend them to other SMEs in the same position as the Harten Group”.
