Grant Street Group announced today that, following a four-month
implementation, the Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office has
officially gone live with PaymentExpress® as its new
electronic payments platform.
The third largest county in California, and the fifth largest in the
nation, the County of Orange encompasses the cities of Anaheim and Santa
Ana and is home to over 3.1 million citizens.
Between the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office and the Probations
Departments, PaymentExpress will process over $2 billion annually in
e-payments for the County of Orange.
“We are excited to partner with Grant Street Group to lower property tax
processing costs of e-checks and credit cards for both taxpayers and the
County on these property tax payments of over $2 billion annually,” said
Orange County Treasurer Shari Freidenrich. “Our implementation went very
smoothly, and I am proud of the County staff that assisted with the
implementation, and the professionalism and hard work of the Grant
Street Group staff on the project.”
Using PaymentExpress, the Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office
and Probations Departments will be capable of accepting all major debit
and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) for
payments online, over the phone, via mobile or tablet devices, and in
the office. E-check payments will also be available online.
“Going live with PaymentExpress in Orange County is a major milestone
for Grant Street Group in California,” said John McCarthy, Executive
Director of Sales. “We excel at completing implementations for multiple
county departments on a tight time frame, and we appreciate the Orange
County staff members’ financial and technical expertise that contributed
to a successful implementation.”
PaymentExpress, Grant Street’s secure e-payments service, is used to
process over $5 billion in credit card and e-check transactions annually.
