Property management technology startup Zego, powered by PayLease, is teaming up with payment processing firm CheckAlt to help property managers end the paper chase that comes with on-site payments, according to a press release emailed to PYMNTS.

The strategic collaboration between the two companies will launch Zego Pay Lockbox to give property managers the ability to outsource the handling of paper-based payments. Zego’s platform will also help property managers move toward 100% digital payments.

Zego Pay Lockbox offers contactless service and enables people to pay with a check, while also automating the receivables process from start to finish for property managers and homeowner associations. The solution gets rid of manual check processing and reduces the possibility of fraud that can come from having paper payments on site.

Stephen Baker, chief product officer at Zego, said that the company’s collaboration with CheckAlt addresses the pain points property managers have and is “truly a win-win” for everyone.
