PALO ALTO, Calif. (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Today, Pageonce revealed its new name, Check. Since launching in 2008, the company has consistently added new ground-breaking technology to its leading mobile app. First, Check built the capability to aggregate all personal accounts in a single place. Later, it launched its top rated personal finance app adopted by millions of US consumers. Most recently, it delivered the capability to connect personal finances with payments – all in one single app.
The name Check reflects more clearly the company’s strategy and value to consumers, and comes at a critical time in its evolution. Since last year, Check has had significant uptick in its number of customers (8+ million today), business partners, and volume of payments processed. Today, Check has 30% MOM growth in payment volume, processing more than $1.5 million per day in bill payments.
“Since our inception in 2008, we’ve been evolving and making our app more and more valuable to our customers,” says Guy Goldstein, founder and CEO of Check. “Check better reflects who we are today and the critical role we play for millions of users with their daily finances. Check is the only company bringing together mobile, personal finance and payments. We believe we can be more effective communicating that value to the next 100 million customers with the name Check.”
The name “Check” was chosen because it’s short, easily visualized and remembered, making it easy for customers to communicate the company’s story. For some customers, the name may represent the new alternative to the old days of paper checks. To others, it might symbolize a check-mark against financial tasks, such as paying your bills, or simply keeping all parts of your life, including your money, in check.
Launched in 2008 and now used by 8+ million customers, Check - Bills & Money is a top-rated finance app, winning the Android Editor's Choice Award 2012, Apple's Best of the New Year 2013 and named CNNMoney's "Cadillac of Money Management Apps”. Privately held and based in Palo Alto, California, Check is funded by Morgenthaler Ventures, Pitango Ventures, and Silicon Valley angel investors. For more information, visit check.me.
