Narmi, a financial technology company based in New York, NY, and Billshark, a financial technology company based in Boston, MA, have partnered to reduce bills for millions of Americans.
Billshark provides bill negotiation services to help consumers reduce monthly bills on cable, satellite TV, wireless phone, internet and many other categories.
Narmi has integrated Billshark’s convenient user experience into its digital banking platform. Account holders at financial institutions that use Narmi’s platform will be able to submit monthly bills for negotiation with just a few taps on their mobile device. Narmi facilitates the information transfer from the account holder to Billshark, and Billshark’s “sharks” take care of the rest.
Through this partnership, Narmi can provide access to Billshark’s services for ~11,500 regional and community financial institutions in the United States. These institutions can now market bill negotiation as an offered service to their account holders.
“This is another example of Narmi partnering with and integrating best-in-class fintech companies into our fintech-focused digital banking platform. We were very impressed with the Billshark team and their passion for saving consumers money,” Narmi Co-Founder Nikhil Lakhanpal stated.
Billshark’s average success rate of 85% in negotiating bills can result in hundreds of dollars returned back to the consumer’s wallet.
