Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Today, Check announced a partnership with Alltel Wireless, a subsidiary of Atlantic Tele-Network, Inc., to provide Alltel customers with the ability to pay and track their bills on their smartphone. The service is now available across all smartphones offered by Alltel.
Recognizing the increasingly important role of mobile commerce, Alltel was interested in finding a top-notch solution that would help customers with bill payment and management. Their search ended with Check, the leading mobile bill payment service in the US. Alltel customers can now track everything through one app: Check – Bills & Money.
“Prior to Check, people would suffer through the headache of navigating dozens of websites to pay their bills,” said Guy Goldstein, CEO of Check. “Check simplifies everything into a single mobile app and takes the work out of paying bills.”
“We are excited to help partners, such as Alltel, provide a great mobile bill pay experience to their customers without the cost of building the technology themselves.”
“With the rapid adoption of smartphones, mobile payments is the fast-growing way to pay consumer bills”, said Gwenn Bezard, co-founder and research director of Aite Group. “Billers that provide a simple and convenient way to view and pay bills with a mobile device stand to improve customer satisfaction and increase their opportunities to interact with customers. Alltel’s partnership with Check demonstrates the firm’s understanding of the importance of providing a superior customer experience, and the economic benefits of providing a great mobile bill pay capability.”
Alltel customers can download the Check app for free from the Alltel App Shop, Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store. Features of the Check app include visibility into all transactions and bill details, including access to monthly bill statements in PDF, real-time bill due alerts, and the ability to make and schedule payments.
Launched in 2008 and now used by 8+ million customers, Check – Bills & Money is a top-rated finance app, winning the Android Editor’s Choice Award 2012, Apple’s Best of the New Year 2013 and named CNNMoney’s “Cadillac of Money Management Apps”. Privately held and based in Palo Alto, California, Check is funded by Morgenthaler Ventures, Pitango Ventures, and Silicon Valley angel investors. For more information, visit http://www.check.me.
