On October 14, PayGo will join the utility industry at Itron Utility Week in Orlando, Florida. Show attendees will learn how to empower their customers—and enhance the payment process—through innovative end-to-end payment solutions and customer service. CMO David Elve and CEO Jeff Weiser will conduct live demonstrations of the PayGo Pre-Pay solution, CheckOut by PayGo, and marketing data analytics for Pre-Pay deployments. Pre-Pay improves the relationship between the customer and utility provider while empowering consumers to manage their usage responsibly and understand their impact on natural resources—a win for the environment as well. PayGo will also demonstrate CheckOut, a patent pending post-pay solution that provides flexibility in how customers pay for their utilities. CheckOut allows customers to “pay where they shop.” Whether they are picking up prescriptions at or shopping for groceries, customers can pay their utilities at the checkout lane. Utilities benefit by stabilizing payment recurrence. CheckOut is currently available at over 200,000 retail locations across the U.S. PayGo’s solutions are consistent with Itron’s commitment to developing “the right solutions, for today and tomorrow.” Itron Utility Week is a customer-focused event and includes four areas of focus: applications and emerging technologies, data management, mobile and measurement solutions, and smart grid and smart networks. Several joint domestic and international utility customers of Itron and PayGo will be in attendance.
