Datatel Communications Inc. /Datatel Inc. in Canada, a leader in Pay-by-Phone solutions on the Cloud, introduces its TXT-2-Pay service for Home Maintenance Service Companies. This allows companies to securely collect payments on the spot using the customer’s mobile phone.

TXT-2-Pay accelerates the payment collection process, allowing home maintenance companies to secure the funds before the technician even leaves the customer’s home - eliminating the risk and associated costs of delayed payment collections.

TXT-2-Pay eliminates the need to send out invoices after the services are rendered, eliminating collections all together.  

For the customer, TXT-2-Pay is convenient and simple to use. The customer initiates the payment process by using their mobile phone to send a text message with their invoice number. No credit card information is ever transmitted over text and this process is completely secure.

TXT-2-Pay for Home Maintenance Services Companies can significantly reduce the inefficient and costly paperwork involved in payment collections; however, it still remains low cost and easy to implement.
