Access Idaho and its OntheGo (OtG) Android app, state agencies in Idaha can take mobile payments outside of Wi-Fi or cellular coverage.
Downloadable for free from the Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Play Store, OtG is offered exclusively to government entities for capturing credit and debit card payments with any Android smart phone or tablet in the field, at conferences and events, or whenever funds need to be collected outside the office.
An optional, encryption-enabled swipe card reader gives OtG its industry-first “store-and-go” distinction. If outside cell or Wi-Fi coverage, the reader stores transaction data securely. Upon connecting to a service area or Wi-Fi network, the application automatically processes the pending payments. If within range, a payment processes within seconds, like other mobile payment services. An email receipt can be sent automatically or manually after a transaction.
Financial officers can reconcile deposits and view/print exportable, real-time billing reports for transactions. Transaction reports are accessible from the Android device or any computer with Internet access, and the information never “expires.” All transaction information is password-protected and transmitted via a secure connection.
Access Idaho currently offers OtG to state, county and city government entities in Idaho only. However, plans include state and local government entities throughout the US There are no merchant fees or monthly minimums, and technical as well as marketing support is also provided at no cost.
