SEATTLE – May 30, 2012 – doxo, the all-in-one digital file cabinet and e-payment solution, today launched new single-click mobile payment capabilities, and added a new smart phone app, doxo Mobile for Android, to its existing iPhone mobile app. Both apps now include doxoPAY, a first-of-its-kind mobile bill payment and management solution enabling users to receive and pay bills from their smart phones and tablets.
The new doxoPAY functionality gives iPhone and Android users the ability to receive and pay bills with one account and one password in a single app. Users no longer have to set up separate usernames and access credentials to manage payment accounts across multiple websites. People can create a free doxo account to organize all their household accounts and documents, and can connect directly with the growing list of service providers that have joined doxo, including AT&T, Sprint, Puget Sound Energy, Kansas City Power and Light, Sound Community Bank, Oregon Federal Credit Union, and many more. This immediate mobile access enables users to pay bills and view stored documents in the palm of their hand, anytime, anywhere.
“The best web services and mobile apps allow you to discover, compare, and transact via the same app, in real-time. They close the loop and make it much easier for the user,” said Jim Bruene of NetBanker. “But that simple user experience is missing in a regular activity of most Americans: paying bills. Whether the bill is received digitally or in paper form, payment is often a three step, process – read the bill when you receive it, open it again to pay it, and then file it somewhere else. doxo is closing the loop by embedding payment options directly into the bill itself, and offering lifetime digital storage of the records. I’m a fan.”
Features of doxo Mobile for iPhone and Android now include:
- Mobile bill payment. Now users can connect with their providers to pay bills, directly from doxo Mobile.
- Mobile bill management. Users receive bills from connected providers and upload documents and bills from home, work, or on the go.
- Digital file cabinet. Users manage all their household accounts and important file folders. Account information, notes, important documents, and bills can be uploaded and organized by account. Users can also snap photos on their phone to upload bills and receipts right into their digital file cabinet.
- Secure back up. doxo automatically and securely backs up users critical documents — insurance policies, marriage licenses, house deeds, and important notes, bills and statements — directly to their hard drive or cloud drives like Box.com or Dropbox.
“The doxo mission is to massively simplify the experience of interacting with providers and paying bills. The new capabilities of our mobile app make bill paying simpler than ever. So simple, in fact, that doxo users are paying their bills an average of 10 days sooner than they would through traditional mail,” said Steve Shivers CEO of doxo. “doxo Mobile takes the hassle out of bill payment, and provides an innovative, free service for businesses to offer to their customers, without having to develop their own app.
For businesses, doxo’s digital file cabinet and mobile app eliminate the key obstacles consumers cite to going paperless and empowers companies of all sizes to simplify customer interaction, speed collection, eliminate credit card fees, and dramatically increase paperless adoption without expensive software. While it’s impractical for customers to download separate mobile apps for all their business providers, the doxo approach provides businesses with the benefits of direct customer interaction and self-service, without the expense of developing a standalone app.
Businesses on doxo and doxo Mobile typically save 80 percent or more on the average cost of mailing a document and receiving a payment. To learn more and create a doxo Provider account (or start a free private trial) visit www.doxo.com/business/
