Workforce Payment Solutions: Fountain Integrates with Branch to Streamline Payments Onboarding

Fountain, the labor applicant tracking system (ATS) and provider of hiring automation software for frontline workforces, announced it has integrated workforce payments platform Branch in order “to make paying new workers fast and scalable for hiring companies.”

Branch claims that it is “the first and only integrated payments solution for Fountain customers.”

Complementing Fountain’s robust and comprehensive platform, Branch makes “paying workers button-click simple.” Companies using Fountain “can now automatically generate Branch’s digital bank account and debit card during the application process, giving new hires an easy, immediate way to get paid following the completion of work.”

Operations teams can “save time and energy by automating the payment setup for new and current workers, including both W-2 employees and 1099 contractors.”

Sean Behr, CEO of Fountain, said:

“We are thrilled to work with Branch and offer a payment solution that will enable workers faster access to their hard-earned money. Together, we’re empowering businesses with comprehensive solutions that increase operational efficiency and improve the worker experience— from application to their first payment and beyond.”

With Fountain’s integration of Branch, businesses can attract and retain talent, pay workers faster, and increase operational efficiency—”at no cost to the business.”

Returnmates, a provider of delivery and return pickup services, is “the first customer to adopt the new integration.”

Returnmates will now offer driver partners “the option to set up a payment method before their first contracted block and receive their payments the next business day after providing services, rather than waiting up to one week.”

Daniel McKeon, Head of Driver Operations at Returnmates, said:

“This integration allows us to provide driver partners with an easier, faster payment option and onboarding experience—we can set everything up so they feel more confident on day one. We’re also able to streamline our own internal processes and reduce time spent processing payments from hours to minutes.”

Atif Siddiqi, founder and CEO of Branch, said:

“Fountain shares our commitment to bringing businesses best-in-class solutions and providing frontline workers versatile payment options. We’re excited to become Fountain’s first payments solution and accelerate the way companies like Returnmates onboard and pay their workforces.”

The Branch App, available on iOS and Android, enables workers to manage their Branch account and debit card.

The Branch account has “no minimum balance requirement, offers cashback rewards on everyday purchases, and enables cardholders to obtain cash at surcharge-free ATM access at more than 55,000 locations across the U.S.”

Workers who sign up with Branch can “add their Branch debit card to their Apple Pay or Google Pay wallets.”
