BALTIMORE, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TIO Networks Corp. (TSX-V: TNC) ("TIO"), North America's leading multi-channel bill payment processor, today announced a partnership between its subsidiary Global Express and the City of Baltimore. The partnership enables residents of Baltimore City and County to pay water bills, and Baltimore City vehicle citations through any Internet enabled mobile device such as iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry.

"This innovative new partnership is a great next step in our ongoing efforts to better connect residents with convenient and secure services," said Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "My administration will continue to work with partners like TIO Networks and Global Express to pursue twenty-first century policies that create a stronger digital infrastructure to better connect communities."

Residents can scan the quick response (QR) code that takes them directly to the payment option page, saving keystrokes, making it easy to find and simple to select. Payments of up to $600 may be made from a checking account at no cost, or from a debit or credit card by paying a $2.50 convenience fee.  

"This new mobile payment option will be particularly appealing for our millennial customers who prefer to do everything with their smartphones," said Janice Simmons, chief of the Bureau of Revenue Collections for Baltimore City Department of Finance. "This new system will allow the City to meet our customers where they are now, and wherever they are going next."
