Universal Transaction Processing – Who we are?

Posted: 9th February 2015

UTP LogoUniversal Transaction Processing (UTP) was established in April 2013.

The business was set up out of desire to give clients the best experience, both in terms of the customer journey and the technology we would be able to provide. With our many years of experience, we were able to see areas which could do with some improvement and were keen to streamline as much of the process as possible. We also wanted to ensure that our staff were trained to the highest standard, not just with our offerings, but throughout the whole marketplace. This in-depth approach means that our staff have a thorough understanding of the industry.

We are excited to be Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce’s new partner and we are looking forward to helping businesses around Scotland to obtain cost effective credit card processing solutions.  We have a team of sales representatives based in various locations around Scotland to offer the best advice and service to both new and existing clients.
