Convenient Kiosks Enable Utilities to Offer Customized Self-Service Payment Locations

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.– Speedpay, Inc., a Western Union subsidiary, announced today its alliance with DivDat, a leading billing and payments solutions kiosk provider. This strategic agreement provides Speedpay’s current and future utility clients the ability to provide easy-to-use, self-service payment kiosks that can be placed onsite or at a location of their choice, enabling customers to conveniently pay their bills.

“By working with DivDat, we’re empowering Speedpay’s utility clients to choose where they place their kiosks to collect payments from their customers at a location that is convenient for them – whether it’s inside a client’s customer service center, a few miles away at a local shopping center, or outside the local grocery store,” said Frank Lockridge, Head of Speedpay.

DivDat Kiosks combine all aspects of hardware, software, installation, maintenance and the power of Speedpay’s reliable payments processing into one solution that reduces costs while promoting greater customer convenience. Combined with Western Union Walk-In Payments, the new DivDat alliance allows Speedpay to help utility companies better serve today’s underbanked and cash-preferred population, affording remote and offline consumers ease and convenience. DivDat Kiosks complement Speedpay’s robust suite of payments offerings.

By adding the Speedpay-enabled DivDat Kiosk to their existing payments strategies, utility companies are able to offer their customers:

  • Access to their account with or without their account number or bill
  • Account information such as payment due date, amount owed, etc.
  • The ability to pay their bill using cash processed by DivDat or check, credit or debit card processed by Speedpay
  • Options to receive their receipt via print or email

“We look forward to working with Speedpay to help people pay their bills in a convenient manner,” said Jason Bierkle, President of DivDat. “The DivDat Kiosk Network is all about leveling the playing field for people to pay bills in a convenient location at a time and method of their choosing. Our vision is to deploy technologies to allow consumers access to pay their bills in a real-time environment.”
