ClickPay Announces Acquisition of RE Lockbox Services

Acquisition Expands ClickPay's Suite of Innovative Payment Solutions for Property Management Companies


NEW YORK, March 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - ClickPay, the fastest growing provider of SaaS-based payment and billing solutions for the property management industry, today announced its acquisition of RE Lockbox Services, a business that has been serving real estate clients for over 30 years. This business union will further support ClickPay's commitment to simplify and consolidate all payment methods into a single comprehensive solution for property managers. The acquisition helps expand the company's staff and resources to support the fast-paced growth while keeping its core focus on customer service, product innovation, and technical support.

After the announcement, ClickPay's CEO, Tom Kiernan, remarked, "Our DNA is electronic payment and automation, but our customers know that a very significant percentage of tenants still pay by paper check.

Jim Woods, former Managing Director of RE will now lead ClickPay's lockbox division as Vice President, Lockbox and Remote Deposit Services. Jim stated "Our teams have always shared the same deep service commitment to our customers which is what made this joining of forces so successful right from the beginning. The team and I are excited to officially join ClickPay to support and fuel the incredibly rapid growth we have both experienced."

ClickPay's President, Steven Van Praagh, stated "The two teams had a large portion of resources shared across many areas of the operation already, making the transition simple. Our customers continue to demand tight integration of data and reporting, processes and procedures, and customer service so it was time for us to constitute a change that benefitted our clients as well as both organizations. A win, win, win in the classical sense."
