By using Access Idaho’s payment engine, the county can accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards at its landfills in St. Anthony and Island Park. The payment engine integrates with the county’s landfill scale management software, SMSTurbo, created by third-party vendor Creative Information Systems.
“Both of our landfill sites experience heavy traffic periodically, especially on Fridays and Saturdays,” said Josh Warnke, Fremont County's Network Administrator. “We’re very pleased with how seamlessly Access Idaho’s payment engine works with our scale management software. It has helped speed up our processes and provides a convenient payment option to our customers.”
In addition, Access Idaho’s payment engine automatically emails transaction receipts to Fremont County Clerk’s Office personnel for easy auditing and reconciling.
More than 160 county departments, including nine in Fremont County alone, throughout the Gem State use Access Idaho’s payment processing services. In addition to payment processing, Access Idaho manages the state’s official Web portal, idaho.gov, and specializes solely in electronic government applications for Idaho. The partnership operates under a self-funded model, in which no tax dollars or county funds were used to develop and maintain the service.
