Although Crunchbase has Doxo formed in 2008, the company launched the Doxo platform in mid 2011. Their all in one service allows users to manage all types of bills from one simple easy to use platform. Now you don’t have to bookmark 5 different credit card sites, all your utility sites and your car note. Everything is managed by logging into Doxo.
Doxo and their all in one digital file cabinet and e-pay system is backed by the king of all e-commerce, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, through his investment arm. In addition to their consumer customers, Doxo has attracted government clients in Washington including: Benton County, Chelan County, Clallam County, Clark County, Franklin County, Island County, Lincoln County, Pend Oreille County, Spokane County, Stevens County, Thurston County, Walla Walla County, Clallam County Public Utilities, Mukilteo Water and Sewer District, Lake Stevens Utility District.
Doxo launched an iOS app last summer and just recently updated it. They also just released an Android app available in the Google Play store, both mobile apps allow consumer users to pay their bills using a one-click method on their mobile phones.
More after the break
“The best web services and mobile apps allow you to discover, compare, and transact via the same app, in real-time. They close the loop and make it much easier for the user,” said Jim Bruene of NetBanker. “But that simple user experience is missing in a regular activity of most Americans: paying bills. Whether the bill is received digitally or in paper form, payment is often a three step, process – read the bill when you receive it, open it again to pay it, and then file it somewhere else. doxo is closing the loop by embedding payment options directly into the bill itself, and offering lifetime digital storage of the records. I’m a fan.”
The new Android app and the updated iOS app include these features:
- Mobile bill payment. Now users can connect with their providers to pay bills, directly from doxo Mobile.
- Mobile bill management. Users receive bills from connected providers and upload documents and bills from home, work, or on the go.
- Digital file cabinet. Users manage all their household accounts and important file folders. Account information, notes, important documents, and bills can be uploaded and organized by account. Users can also snap photos on their phone to upload bills and receipts right into their digital file cabinet.
- Secure back up. doxo automatically and securely backs up users critical documents – insurance policies, marriage licenses, house deeds, and important notes, bills and statements – directly to their hard drive or cloud drives like Box.com or Dropbox.
