In 1997, Bend Mailing Services was a small company whose business was centered around bulk mail. Five years later, Co-owner Nick Di Spaltro developed software enabling the company to perform paper billing services and they gained clients nationwide. Their niche soon became utility and waste disposal billing. Now they have gone a step further, developing and incorporating online billing technology that has reached across the pond. 

“Online billing was a natural progression from paper statements. Right now eighty percent of the company is paper and the other 20 percent is online, but we’re growing.”  Co-owner Sam Di Spaltro notes. After only one year of implementing their online payment service, Nick estimates 50,000 online users have registered and 20,000 online payments are processed each month.

Currently, Bend Mailing sends out approximately 700,000 a month, starting with 24,000 in 2003. With the overseas clients and the online billing option the company hopes to reach 1 million statements per month in the first part of 2012.
