The Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses (IBOL) in the US has switched to a new payment engine, Access Idaho, which allows credit card processing both online and over-the-counter.
IBOL will now be able to take Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover cards through its licensing system.
The bureau also leveraged Access Idaho’s PayPort service for collecting cards at the counter. This service in combination with the payment engine is intended to save time by streamlining billing reports.
The payment engine also provides the bureau with an option to use Gov2Go Pay service by NIC, a digital government solutions provider, in the future.
Gov2Go Pay is designed to enable storage of credit card details, allow information checking at a later date, quicken checkout process, show payment transaction history and facilitate payment to other state agencies in Idaho.
IBOL has collaborated with Access Idaho to build and maintain the service under a self-funded model.
