PITTSBURGH (June 5, 2012) — Sentric, Inc., a Human Capital Management software and payroll services firm, announced its exclusive partnership with First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing, to reduce the number of paper paychecks and statements distributed each year to Sentric’s more than 200,000 employees currently under management.

The BRIO® Service from First Data is a fast, safe and easy way to get paid instantly with the BRIO Paycard and Money Network™ Checks. The program is available now to all Sentric clients.

“Our clients, especially those who share our vision for environmental sustainability, can now offer every employee a green option for receiving their wages on pay day,” said Mike Maggs, CEO at Sentric. “In addition to our traditional direct deposit service, our clients can offer their employees, those with and without bank accounts, immediate access to funds on pay day without a fee and with the added convenience of accessing their cash at thousands of locations nationwide using their BRIO Card or using Money Network Checks.

“Beyond these employee benefits, the BRIO program addresses real business issues of privacy and fraud prevention while reducing the fees associated with the generation and delivery of paper checks. This service offering represents a final and important step in Sentric’s green payroll solutions initiative,” said Maggs.

Sentric, provides thousands of middle-market organizations across the country with “cloud-based,” integrated workforce management software featuring payroll, human resources, and time and labor management solutions.

“Partnering with Sentric further supports our goal to provide consumers with a trusted and convenient solution for getting immediate access to wages on pay day,” said Mark Putman, senior vice president, Prepaid Solutions, First Data. “Users can manage their accounts with features such as checking their account balance online and by phone; receiving balance updates via text or email; and loading funds from various sources including a second job, child support and government benefits.”

Employees of Sentric clients will have free access to their funds on pay day anywhere their debit cards are accepted including stores, online and over the phone. The Money Network Checks can be used to get cash or pay bills just like any other checks. Funds loaded to the BRIO Card are FDIC insured.
