TIO Networks launches PG&E mobile bill payment app for Android users
VANCOUVER -- TIO Networks Corp., North America’s leading multi-channel expedited bill payment processor, today announced the launch of its Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) mobile bill payment application for Android. This new app allows PG&E customers in Northern and Central California to conveniently pay their utility bills on an expedited basis through their Android smartphones. Android users can now download the application for free from the Android Market.
TIO’s PG&E mobile bill payment for Android joins the PG&E bill payment offering developed by TIO for Apple’s iOS platform which is also offered as a free download at Apple’s App store. To date, the PG&E mobile bill payment app has been downloaded more than 50,000 times and processed more than $12 million in consumer transactions.
Once installed on an Android powered phone or iPhone, iPod or iPad, the PG&E mobile bill payment app enables customers to log-in and quickly access real-time account balance information and/or use any VISA, MasterCard or bank account to pay their bills. Customers’ payments are posted on a real-time basis as soon as payment confirmation is given by the application. The highly secure application stores all account information so that subsequent payments are immediate and automated reminders ensure customers are always up to date with their payment schedules.
“PG&E customers have made the PG&E mobile bill pay app a true winner,” stated Hamed Shahbazi, Chairman and CEO of TIO Networks. “The app is initiated in user phones more than 100,000 times per month to make payments or quickly access account information and consistently ranks as one of the top apps in the Apple App store. With the launch of an Android version, TIO demonstrates its commitment to support leading smartphone application ecosystems. The company’s mobile platform is in the midst of an aggressive expansion to support additional handsets and billers in the coming months.”
