Striata, a provider of electronic bill presentment and payment solutions (EBPP), has partnered with IHS Telekom, a systems integrator, to bring electronic billing (e-billing) and electronic statement (e-statement) solutions to local banks, utilities and telecommunications companies in Turkey.
Billers will now be able to offer their customers convenient e-bills delivered as secure PDF’s via email. Adoption of the email bills is built into the billing process, with an electronic consent splash page covering the first bill to encourage customers to go paperless and receive their first bill in just one click, with no registration required.
“Traditional methods of sending bills by paper or pulling customers back to websites have, until now, been the only option available to billers. Striata’s partnership with IHS allows us to bring value-added push email billing and payment services to this market. IHS has the market experience and is well networked to successfully introduce Striata’s innovative services to utilities, telcos and financial institutions in Turkey,” said Michael Wright, Striata chief executive officer (CEO).
