Point & Pay Enters Wisconsin Market
Point & Pay, the online payment subsidiary of Troy-based North American Bancard, has a new business partnership with the Wisconsin County Treasurers’ Association as well as six new clients in the Badger State.
Point & Pay has been selected over a field of competitors by the WCTA to be the association’s new provider of tax payment systems. The systems enable Wisconsin citizens to pay local government taxes and fees online, over the phone or in a government office by using an major credit or debit card or e-check. The tax and fee collection services will be available to any of the WCTA’s 72 counties, as well as municipalities within those counties.
As a result of Point & Pay’s new partnership with the WCTA, six Wisconsin counties have already signed on to participate in the Point & Pay program, with more scheduled to follow. Citizens of Brown, Douglas, Portage, Price, Outagamie and Wood counties will be able to use Point & Pay’s systems to pay their balance due in advance of the Jan. 31, 2011 tax due date.
“Our six new Wisconsin county clients are providing citizens with a fast, convenient and secure payment option, and improving the accounting and reporting process for treasury employees,” said Kevin Connell, President of Point & Pay. “Brown, Douglas, Portage, Price, Outagamie and Wood counties are leading the way, and we look forward to providing our modern systems to more government offices in Wisconsin’s counties and municipalities.”
Added Outagamie County Treasurer Dina M. Mumford, who chairs the WCTA’s technology committee: “The WCTA strives to promote ideas for operating efficiently and effectively as fiduciaries of our counties on behalf of the citizens of the State of Wisconsin. We chose Point & Pay because the company is best equipped to help us reach this goal, by providing high-quality, flexible systems that streamline our tax collections and accounting processes and improve our customer service.”
