Digital government and payments leader will leverage additional funding to accelerate product expansion and fuel continued growth

Kansas City, MO : PayIt, the company modernizing interactions between governments and residents, has closed a $90M investment from Macquarie Capital Principal Finance. The new financing will support PayIt’s continued growth and product innovation. Macquarie Senior Managing Directors Larry Handen and Jared Doskow will join PayIt’s Board of Directors, alongside global software investor Insight Partners and Weatherford Capital.

“We are delighted to welcome Macquarie to the PayIt team,” said PayIt founder and CEO John Thomson. “We have exciting plans to further empower governments to deliver consumer-grade digital interactions everywhere, and Macquarie Capital’s investment and know-how will serve as a force multiplier in our achievement of that vision.”

PayIt makes it simple, secure, and seamless for governments to accept digital payments and serve their constituents across web, desktop, and mobile. Its cloud-based solutions are easy to deploy and purpose-built for the public sector, with modules spanning Motor Vehicle, Taxes, Courts, Utilities, and more. PayIt’s customers include digital leaders like the City of Toronto, Florida’s Palm Beach County, and North Carolina.

“PayIt is at the forefront of Citizen-Centric Governance. Their technology delivers much needed services more cheaply, quickly and with greater public satisfaction than ever before,” said Larry Handen, senior managing director at Macquarie Capital. “The PayIt team and their customers are impressive and committed. We look forward to supporting their mission.” 

Jared Doskow, senior managing director at Macquarie Capital, added, “We expect the ability to use mobile devices and technology for all sorts of services as consumers, and PayIt is bringing this modern approach to their government customers. We’re excited to partner with the PayIt team and support the next chapter of growth together.”  

“PayIt is powering a long-overdue transformation in the way government agencies and residents interact,” said Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. “I congratulate the team at PayIt on this important milestone in their growth, and look forward to seeing them continue to deliver on their vision of bringing people and government closer together.”

This investment comes during a momentous time in PayIt’s continued scaling. It recently released its highly configurable next-generation platform architecture, as well as ProSight™, a robust backend dashboard for management and insights. The company has also expanded its executive team, appointing Jean Nobile as senior vice president of operations, and Kelly Davis-Felner as chief marketing officer, and was named to the GovTech100 for the sixth year in a row earlier this year.
