What Our Customers Say

Triebel Family Ent Inc

Customer Since 2019

I’ve struggled like many business owners have with writing way too many paper checks to employees over the years.  Ever since Dan cold called me from Ready Fund$ my business has changed!  First of all I never answer sales calls, or I typically hang up on whomever was making the call, I was intrigued by Dan’s friendliness and straight shooting answers to my questions. I felt like I’ve never be able to stop buying checks to issue to non banking employees – boy, was I wrong! After grabbing Ready Fund$ I discovered just how different things could be. Through superior support and easy online registration I learned that you can actually stop writing checks now. I can’t even describe the impact this has had on my business and how it also can help with the ever growing problem of bank fraud. Ready Fund$ is pure genius, and I simply can’t wait to see what they do next!

Customer Since 2009

Our organization began using the ReadyFUND$ payroll card program in February of 2010. Prior to using ReadyFUND$, the production and delivery of checks to our employees was cumbersome and time consuming. While we wanted to move to direct deposit for all our employees, we had a significant number who did not have bank accounts. By using the ReadyFUND$ card, we solved that problem and now every employee can use direct deposit either to their bank account or the ReadyFUND$ card. We now offer ReadyFUND$ as a new benefit to all our employees, dramatically increasing our direct deposit participation. This has translated to significant cost savings for us and more satisfied employees.

Haven Nursing Center, Inc.

Customer Since 2010

We implemented ReadyFUND$ in November of 2010 to provide 100% of our employees the ability to receive their pay electronically, even those without a bank account. I must say the program has been very well received and the benefits that ReadyFUND$ provides to our employees and our company are terrific. Employees like that they have access to their pay first thing in the morning on payday, even before reporting for work and the workplace disruption on payday is noticeably less.

We love the convenience of the Instant Issue ReadyFUND$ MasterCard® payroll card. We can offer the instant issue card at the time of hire so new employees don’t have to wait for a card in the mail anymore and the company can set them up for electronic pay the same day they are hired. The new program makes our employee boarding process even more efficient and is better for our employees since they receive the MasterCard on day one. Using the ReadyFUND$ Client Portal for card inventory management, registering cards, getting program information and reports is a snap and makes program administration quick and easy.

We are very pleased with the support provided by your staff and have no reservations in recommending your services. The ReadyFUND$ card is a great solution for our company and our employees.

Our company is very pleased with the success we have had with the payroll card program.  We have over 500 employees within our company, and having 100% direct deposit has been a huge benefit to our company and employees.

The staff has been great to work with. They are very responsive and helpful with whatever needs we may have.

We recommend the ReadyFund$ Payroll Card Program!!!

I delivered first payroll…and they were ALL wowed about the pay cards.  I was surprised to hear even those employees who have a banking relationship choose the card because of the additional benefits.
