Melbourne, Australia 5th June, 2018 – Australian Securities Exchange and Frankfurt Stock Exchange cross listed iSignthis Ltd (ASX:ISX/FRA:TA8), the world leading RegTech for identity verification and payment services, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with an artificial intelligence (AI) fintech bill payment automation startup called Gobbill™. iSignthis is supporting innovative companies like Gobbill by providing global identity verification and payment solutions.

The partnership with iSignthis supports Gobbill’s international expansion plans utilising their identity verification services and transactional banking facilities to clear payments.

“Partnering with iSignthis is a strategic and important milestone for Gobbill. It enables our customers to pay any bill for billers that do not accept card payments or various card schemes. To pay any bill using UnionPay or American Express is a significant offering, particularly for overseas Australian property investors and small businesses using Gobbill”, stated Shendon Ewans, CEO and Co-founder of Gobbill.

John Karantzis, CEO of iSignthis said, “Gobbill represents an opportunity for iSignthis to support a prospective leader in bill payment automation, as well as for us to provide a means for them to expand outside of Australia, by providing facilities to them in Europe as they expand. Having witnessed Gobbill emerge over the last three years, we are delighted to be part of their future growth.”

Gobbill will also have the ability to globally digitally identify customers to offer a convenient way of switching service providers using their One-Click-Switch™ method. Utilising AI to automate research and comparisons of products, as well as interact with customers, will save them significant time and money.

AFR – Gobbill is a clever way for business owners to save time

June 1st, 2018 Posted by Case Studies, Featured, Gobbill News, Time Management 0 thoughts on “AFR – Gobbill is a clever way for business owners to save time”

Finding clever ways to accomplish more in a time-pressed business day can be the difference between getting through that endless list of tasks, or not.

Using Gobbill to automate payments is one way.

Manually going through and paying bills can eat into a huge chunk of your week. Which is why businesses are automating payments and using digital tools.

Premier Health Partners owner Paul O’Keefe introduced Gobbill, a digital service that schedules and automates bill and invoice payments.

“Throughout the year, Gobbill produces reports that separates GST and categorises bills into accounts, so come quarterly reporting and annual tax reporting seasons, all admin burdens are removed,” he says. Source: Financial Review
