Callcredit buys Legatio

Callcredit has bought the online payment service provider Legatio Technologies.

Legatio Technologies was set up over five years ago, and has a strong reputation as an innovative provider of online payment services.

Legatio’s current client roster includes Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs and the Employment Tribunal Service, as well as private sector companies. These include household names such as IBM and BT.

Products include credit and debit card verification services and online payment processing. Legatio also works with its clients to integrate “Smart Forms”, to help them simplify data capture.

Callcredit was set up in 2001 and says its latest acquisition is an example of how fast its growing.

Graham Lund, deputy managing director of Callcredit, says: “We are delighted to have acquired a company which in many ways mirrors our own.

“Legatio has come a long way in a short time, has a reputation for being innovative and boasts a very strong client portfolio – all of which is true of Callcredit. We look forward to a bright and successful future together.”
