doxo bill paying service receives Top 100 North America Award from Red Herring for 2017, spotlighting North America’s most exciting and disruptive fintech startups
SEATTLE, WA. – July 19, 2017
Recognizing the continent’s most exciting and innovative private technology companies, the Red Herring Top 100 North America Award is the latest milestone for doxo, and singles out the Seattle company as one of the most exciting startups from across North America.
With the list’s recipients announced on June 14, 2017, the winners were chosen from thousands of prospective tech startups by Red Herring in a rigorous nomination, review and awards process. Companies were judged by industry experts, insiders and journalists on a wide variety of criteria including financial performance, innovation, disruptive business strategy and market penetration.
Ultimately, doxo received the award because of its impact on the way billers think about how they get paid by their customers. Of the 250,000 top billers in the country, only 4% are on any electronic network. Billers can enroll in doxo’s direct pay network and join the thousands of billers who electronically connect to over 2 million doxo users. doxo is compatible with all existing billing systems (even if the biller is stuck in an exclusive agreement with their payments provider), and is free to billers to connect with electronically. doxo’s direct connect provides billers with:
- A better experience for their customers.
- 3 to 5 business day faster payments than by mail.
- Fewer customer missed delivery dates and mail delivery issues.
- Business flexibility of no-commitment, month-to-month contracts.
“We’re honored to be included in the Red Herring Top 100,” comments doxo CEO and Co-Founder Steve Shivers. “We are proud to be recognized for our disruptive service in the bill-pay space, as billers have been stuck in long-term contracts with the same billing vendors for years. doxo eliminates long-term contracts, exclusivity, and high integration costs that lock billers into these overpriced solutions. Billers should be free to use the solution that best meets their customers’ needs.”
“This is one of the most innovative and exciting groups of companies we’ve ever hosted at a Top 100 awards show,” says Alex Vieux, chairman of Red Herring. “It’s always a pleasure to come to California and see the cream of North America’s tech crop. doxo fully deserves its place among our award recipients, and I have every confidence they will make a significant impact in the world.”
