Phoenix, Ariz. – August 30, 2011 – BillingTree, one of the nation's leading on-demand payment processors announced today it will be presenting on September 22 during the American Gas Association Uncollectibles Workshop. The conference, now in its 8th year, is traditionally attended by credit and collections managers from utilities across the nation.
According to Pew Research Center, 72% of American adults send and receive text messages. Therefore, harnessing this vital new communication channel to improve relationships with gas customers is fast becoming no longer an option but a necessity.
BillingTree's presentation will profile two utility customers' recent implementations of text notification, billing and payments. Additional content will include tips, tricks and lessons learned from the first few months of this offering including how they deployed, signed-up customers and encouraged adoption, the impact on their DSO, paper bill suppression and more.
