TruePoint Solutions and InvoiceCloud Create Expanded Options for Utility Billing Market
BOSTON and LOOMIS, Calif.—August 16, 2022: TruePoint Solutions, developer and provider of leading utility billing and agricultural irrigation management solutions and professional services for the public sector, and InvoiceCloud, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution for online bill payment services today announced that they have entered into an alliance agreement.
The alliance supports TruePoint’s strategy to provide its customers with a high degree of flexibility and efficiency in its software solutions, TrueBill and TrueAIM. InvoiceCloud offers a new model for utility and agricultural irrigation billing agencies to manage payments from their customers.
“We are proud to offer TruePoint customers a user-friendly billing and payment solution designed to improve their customer’s experience and operational processes,” says Paul Applegate, Vice President of Alliances and Business Development at Invoice Cloud. “With InvoiceCloud’s SaaS solution, TruePoint customers have access to the latest online payment options with an easy to implement, secure system they can trust.”
InvoiceCloud is known as a disrupter in the realm of payment platforms. Its robust set of features allow for a broader range of payment methods and extends beyond the limits of accepting and processing payments. InvoiceCloud leverages smart technology and communication functionality to identify and offer opportunities to billed customers, such as enrolling in paperless billing and issuing payment reminders and notifications. As a result, utility agencies’ customers enjoy a user-friendly experience for bill payment, fewer missed due dates, a reduced need to call the agency, and a greater likelihood of transitioning to paperless billing.
TruePoint Solutions recognized the opportunity to join with InvoiceCloud as a great addition to the options available with its TrueBill and TrueAIM solutions. TruePoint Solutions built its market-leading software on state-of-the-art technology to create simplified, highly efficient processes for utility billing and agricultural irrigation management agencies. The solutions earn top ratings for their dependability and flexibility to meet the needs of virtually any utility billing or irrigation agency. Additionally, both TrueBill and TrueAIM are hailed as game-changers among agencies for their ability to improve processes, streamline workflows, and boost customer satisfaction.
“We’re excited to partner with InvoiceCloud,” states Kent Johnson, CEO of TruePoint Solutions. “The extended functionality the platform provides to the payment component for agencies provides a seamless, enhanced experience for both the agency and their end customers. This partnership is a natural next step in the continuous advancement of TrueBill and TrueAIM.”
