Jason Bierkle joined DivDat in 1989, serving in a variety of capacities over his career with the company. In 2007, he was named to his current position of President. Mr. Bierkle has led the company’s efforts into embracing new technologies to expand customer billing and payment services to include Point of Sale, Interactive Voice Response, Web-based, Kiosk and Mobile App payments.
When DivDat purchased Newington, Va.-based Telepost in 1992, Mr. Bierkle was given the responsibility of directing the acquired division’s assimilation into DivDat’s culture and business practices while managing the entity’s development and growth. Under his supervision, the Newington branch significantly cut operating costs while increasing productivity 300 percent. He went on to accomplish similar results upon DivDat’s acquisition of its Las Vegas division.
After four years in Virginia, Mr. Bierkle returned to the company’s headquarters in Ferndale, Mich., to direct the company’s overall operations and supervise the Michigan office’s expansion and relocation, more than doubling its square-footage and increasing its production capacity. In 1999, he conceived and developed the strategy to drive the company’s e-commerce initiative, establishing DivDat’s electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) division. Under his direction, DivDat teamed with longtime client Nestle Waters of North America to complete the national rollout of its trademarked billOnline™ service to its customers in 2000.
In 2006, Mr. Bierkle led a team that identified, developed and marketed the industry’s first complete receivables management system, CashLINC™. This comprehensive suite of customer contact and response services for account receivables communications allowed DivDat’s clients to streamline their financial processes and vendor management requirements.
