TROY, Mich., November 15, 2013 - Said County Treasurer Steve Oliver,

“Our new systems from Point & Pay help my office effectively manage our funds and provide exemplary service to our customers, who can now access their information and pay anytime, anywhere - either in our office, or on any device. We are particularly proud of the new ferry ticket payment options, allowing customers to buy tickets both online and onboard. Ferry riders specifically asked for this, and Whatcom County listened. The County will be rolling out additional payment services in other County departments soon including courts, health, parks, and planning and development services. We chose Point & Pay because they brought us real-life solutions that work for regular people. That’s a good partner.”

“We are pleased to welcome Whatcom County to our growing list of government clients that are providing the next generation of payment options to their citizens,” said Kevin C. Connell, President, Point & Pay. “The County is a prime example of how government can effectively apply technology to improve the day-to-day lives of their citizens.”
