PayNearMe and Nortridge Software Unveil In-Platform Integration, Expanded Payment Options to Enhance Customer Efficiency

SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 3, 2020 – PayNearMe, the modern and reliable payments platform known for making payments easy for both businesses and customers, and Nortridge Software LLC, a leading software provider for lenders and loan servicing companies nationwide, are pleased to announce a new integration that will allow Nortridge’s clients to leverage PayNearMe’s full suite of tender options — including cash and electronic payments — directly within Nortridge’s loan software. This integration allows lenders to more efficiently accept and reconcile bill payments in real-time, and enables millions of consumers the flexibility to make bill payments with any tender they choose.

“Many of our clients have been asking how they can accept all payment types without needing to maintain multiple payment processing platforms,” said Greg Hindson, CEO and President, Nortridge Software LLC. “We first partnered with PayNearMe in 2013 to provide our clients with access to their convenient and reliable retail cash payment network. This deep integration will now enable our clients to accept all forms of tender and leverage a powerful engagement engine for messaging through a single payment processor, within the Nortridge platform.”

Streamlining workflows is a priority for many Nortridge clients. The integration of the PayNearMe platform directly within Nortridge software eliminates the need to flip between software platforms when taking payments over the phone, a process that is fraught with errors and inefficiencies. Call center agents can also easily send text reminders with a unique link that allows customers to complete electronic payments on their smartphone or cash payments at local convenience store retailers.

PayNearMe’s easy-to-deploy platform and responsive approach to service and support simplifies solution set-up and management for Nortridge clients and allows lenders to provide greater flexibility, convenience and service to their borrowers.

“Whether you’re a lender or a borrower, accepting or making bill payments shouldn’t be complicated,” explained Mike Kaplan, Chief Revenue Officer, PayNearMe. “Our deepened integration with Nortridge puts convenience, flexibility and simplicity at the forefront of the loan payment processing experience. Combined with our high reliability and reputation for security, this integration frees up Nortridge clients to focus on business expansion initiatives rather than worry about payment processing administration.”
