Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2016
YapStone™, a global provider of full-stack payment solutions for global marketplaces and large vertical markets, announced today a partnership with AssociationVoice™, the leading provider of website solutions for homeowners’ associations and management companies. YapStone will power payments for AssociationVoice customers through DuesPayment™, its proprietary online payment solution for homeowners’ associations. With a robust product offering, AssociationVoice empowers management companies to create a professional web presence and the integration with DuesPayment will give HOA property managers and homeowners access to an online payment solution that offers a convenient and secure way to collect and pay dues.
“We are very pleased to partner with AssociationVoice,” says Michael Denbeau, YapStone VP of Vertical Markets. “We have been a close partner to AssociationVoice’s sister company, AtHomeNet, for several years and are excited to now offer DuesPayment to the AssociationVoice customer base as well.”
Through the partnership of the two companies, DuesPayment will integrate with AssociationVoice to offer immense value to homeowners’ associations and management companies. The benefits include:
- End-to-End Payment Solution for Homeowners: Homeowners have the flexibility to pay HOA assessments online on a one-time or recurring basis, using a credit card, debit card or e-check. In addition, homeowners can leverage DuesPayment’s cutting-edge mobile payment technologies, including its pay-by-text functionality, which allows homeowners to receive payment reminders and make dues payments via text message.
- Faster Funding Times: Payments made electronically are available faster than traditional payment methods. In most cases, property managers will have access to the funds paid by their homeowners in 2-3 days. Historically, writing and mailing a paper check, and the subsequent manual processing of those funds could take 5-7 days or more on average.
- Reduced Debit and Credit Card Fees: By leveraging DuesPayment’s significant processing scale in the HOA industry, AssociationVoice is now able to offer its customers fees on debit and credit card payments that are among the lowest in the industry.
- Custom Integration with Industry Accounting Software Packages: The AssociationVoice payments platform powered by DuesPayment is integrated with many of the industry’s leading software packages, allowing management staff to automatically and seamlessly post electronic payments to their accounting software ledgers — saving valuable time and reducing human error.
“Our customers are looking for better payment options to avoid the hassle of accepting paper checks,” says Tim Vollman, CEO of CII, parent company of AssociationVoice. “We are thrilled to be partnering with DuesPayment to offer HOA property managers and homeowners the very latest in online and mobile technologies to make and accept payments.”
