Spenda (ASX:SPX) have finalised the negotiation and terms within the Digital Services Delivery (DSD) initiative with Capricorn Society, with the foundational phase extended to facilitate further work and deeper engagement with Capricorn’s key suppliers.

DSD Initiative

As announced in May this year, Spenda was chosen by Capricorn to deliver the first preliminary phase of its DSD initiative, a project to be carried out over 12 weeks, with the Company reporting successful completion of phase one today.

The two parties have initiated negotiations to extend the foundational phase engagements, enabling enhanced collaboration and deeper involvement with Capricorn’s essential suppliers.

Spenda currently provides Capricorn, a member-based organisation primarily servicing business in the automotive industry, services under the Software, Services and Maintenance Agreement, which expires in June 2024.

The CAPCharge system incorporates various components of the Spenda product suite, including Pay-Statement-by-Link and Payment Widget and Spenda’s inside sales capabilities.
