Burnaby, British Columbia, Sept. 26, 2007 — TIO Networks Corp., with Jackson Energy Authority, will launch a new self-serve automated bill payment service to allow the utility’s customers to pay their bills via cash-accepting touchscreen ATM terminals at local retail stores participating in the TIO Network.
Commencing in the winter of 2007, Jackson Energy Authority customers can make self-serve automated bill payments, in English or Spanish, through the network on the ATM terminal. Payments are made by inserting cash directly into the terminal’s bill acceptor. Once the cash is accepted, TIO uses an Internet link to ensure real time posting to the customer’s account.
The bill payment service is an optional service provided by TIO Networks on behalf of Jackson Energy Authority as an added convenience for their cash-paying utility customers. The touchscreen ATM terminals will soon be available in over 10 retail locations throughout the area. TIO Networks will apply a $2.00 convenience fee for this service.
