It’s a milestone moment in the company’s short four-year history, but they couldn’t have reached it without the support of partners like revenue management providers, DFC.

DFC’s unique Direct Debit collection process has driven retention and helped build long-lasting relationships between PowerWave and its members. DFC’s handy online joining portal provides easy-access sign-ups for new members, whilst their expert credit control team having taken the uncomfortable task of chasing payments off PowerWave’s busy staff.

Speaking about PowerWave’s relationship with DFC, Jay Laville, founder and CEO of PowerWave, said: “DFC makes our lives so much easier. For PowerWave it’s all about membership growth. Not only do DFC give us fantastic advice on how to build and retain our membership base, their services are key to driving up revenue."

DFC manages the Direct Debit collection process end-to-end for health clubs across the UK, providing convenient solutions for their members and transparent payment reports for clients.
