Burnaby, B.C., December 1, 2009 — TIO Networks Corp., a bill payment processing services firm, and electric utility Georgia Power will launch a self-service automated bill payment program in select retail stores in metropolitan Atlanta.
The self-service, cash-accepting automated kiosks will enable Georgia Power customers to make bill payments via TIO’s expedited bill payment processing system.
The kiosks are expected to be fully operational this winter. Using the touchscreen interface, customers will navigate through bill-pay applications in either English or Spanish, and insert cash directly into self-serve automated kiosks to securely complete transactions.
All payments will be posted immediately to the customers’ account. The customers will have the option to either print or forward receipts to an email address of their choice. Users will pay a $2 fee per transaction.
TIO is a multi-channel expedited bill payment processor serving the telecom, wireless, cable and utility bill issuers in North America.
