TORONTO and NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - VersaPay Corporation (TSXV: VPY) ("VersaPay" or the "Company"), a leading provider of cloud-based invoicing, accounts receivable management and payment solutions, is pleased to announce that Brixmor Property Group Inc. (NYSE: BRX) ("Brixmor"), a leading U.S. retail commercial real estate investment trust (REIT), has become an ARCTM customer. Brixmor owns and operates America's largest wholly owned portfolio of grocery-anchored community and neighborhood shopping centers, with more than 500 properties strategically located across 38 states.
"We were looking for a platform that would enhance communications with our customers as well as provide more payment options for our tenants," said Dennis Hanifan, Vice President, Application Systems with Brixmor. "Given the scale of our company, we also wanted to simplify how we receive and reconcile payments from our tenants, and found VersaPay's ARCTM solution was a good fit for our needs."
"Earning Brixmor's business demonstrates our ability to successfully deploy ARC into large companies in key vertical markets," commented Craig O'Neill, VersaPay's CEO. "We now have lead customers in key verticals including media, transportation and logistics, manufacturing and commercial real estate. Once we have a significant customer in a target vertical our ability to win more business within that vertical increases dramatically and the sales cycle is reduced."
"The best part of the VersaPay Tenant Portal is that our tenants can view invoices, obtain backup and make payments any time with the press of a button," said Grace Bellino, Brixmor's Vice President of Collections. "Additionally, it is easy for tenants to sign up for the on-line service which is very intuitive, saving them time."
