Blackstone Technology Group, a global technology and management consulting firm, has partnered with Pageonce, a personal finance software that allows customers to track and pay their bills on their mobile phones, in order to extend Pageonce to utility companies.

According to the companies, the Pageonce solution will help utilities launch mobile applications at a low cost, drive electronic bill payment, accelerate conversions to paperless statements, and deliver smart meter data such as energy use and outage alerts.

"Many utilities are beginning to think about a mobile bill payment option for their customers, and they are looking for ways to deliver more capabilities, increased choice, higher value, and more frequent interaction for an overall enhanced customer experience," says David Mysona, CEO of Blackstone Technology Group.

“We’re excited to partner with Blackstone Technology Group,” adds Guy Goldstein, CEO of Pageonce. “Blackstone’s extensive expertise and relationships within the energy and utility sector allow us to expand into this market.”
