PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/16/11 -- Pageonce (pageonce.com), the popular daily finance service for mobile devices, today announced it passed the five million registered user milestone, grew the amount of bills it tracks for its users by more than 250%, and increased its staff by 67 percent over the last two quarters. Pageonce is now managing over $661 billion in annual transactions and $99 billion in assets for its users. As of June 2011, Pageonce users accounted for nearly 6.5 percent of the 78.5 million U.S. smartphone users (comScore U.S. Mobile Subscriber Market Share, August 4, 2011).
Pageonce Money & Bills turns any mobile device into a universal remote for all accounts, giving users control over their cash, payments due, credit cards and investments all in one place. Users receive helpful reminders and alerts about the status of their accounts and relevant money-saving offers for better credit cards, insurance and other financial products. Adding accounts and bills is simple and only requires username and password, never sensitive information such as names, addresses, social security numbers, account numbers or PINs. All accounts are anonymous and protected with bank-level security.
New technologies such as Pageonce are fueling the growth of the mobile finance sector. Thirty percent of mobile phone users conducted one or more banking services via their mobile phone, according to the Fiserv 2010 Consumer Billing and Payment Trends Survey.
