A new electric or gas utility can be up and running in 30 days.

MDS offers a way for a utility to process their employees’ payroll information securely and efficiently. Additionally, companies can offer insurance and 401k options by working with the payroll specialists.
Companies in need of extra business capital for payroll, marketing, taxes or the myriad of other business related expenses can utilize the merchant cash advance program offered through MDS. Money for Merchants offers quick credit based on future sales projections. This solution is vital for new startups who may not otherwise have the capital needed to grow their business.
Additionally, companies may find themselves in need of equipment for their business including POS equipment, credit card machines or other miscellaneous computer equipment related to their brick and mortar commerce as well as to their web based stores. MDS offers both equipment lease and equipment finance to its merchants. Some of these options may be attractive to an electric, gas, sewer or water utility who doesn’t want to spend a lot of business capital on buying outright the equipment needed to run the business.
Point of Sale equipment sales and leasing, payment processing and merchant cash advances, including credit and debit card processing, are among the services provided. Even if utilities don’t need to provide all of the same services as other businesses such as POS integration, MDS can and will provide a unique customized approach to meet the needs of the business’s customers and be able to collect payment in a quick and efficient manner. Whether it is electronic check transmission or debit and credit transactions, MDS can handle all the business needs for a fluid transaction. Customers can rest assured that each transaction remains secure.
