James City County Sees 11x Increase in Electronic Payments with InvoiceCloud’s Innovative Payments Solutions

InvoiceCloud’s Growing Tax Business has Helped Municipal Tax Collectors Around the Country Grow Revenue and Improve Customer Satisfaction

 

BOSTON—June 3, 2022—James City County has seen a 1,060% increase in electronic payments after choosing InvoiceCloud, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution for online bill payment services. James City County and InvoiceCloud first started working together in April 2019, and e-adoption continues to grow.

James City County switched its payments platform to InvoiceCloud in order to offer customers the latest options in digital payments and increase business efficiencies. In addition to increased electronic payments with InvoiceCloud, James City County has also seen a 554% increase in paperless enrollment from 2019-2022, as well as a significant decrease in mailed and in-person payments, reducing operational expenses for the County.

“The InvoiceCloud platform helped us cut mailed and in person payments in half, enabling us to shift resources to other areas of need,” said James City County Treasurer Jennifer Tomes. “In fact, it decreased mailed-in payments so much that we never fell behind on processing these payments in a single day in the past cycle—a first in my 20+ years of processing payments.”
