Southwest Distribution Inc. Deploys PayApp by iControl™ Across Organization

Posted by iControl Marketing on February 4, 2016 12:10:04 PM EST

BURTONSVILLE, MD, February 4, 2016 – iControl Data Solutions (iControl), a leading process improvement and business insights provider to Retailers, Suppliers and Brokers, announced today the expansion of Southwest Distribution Inc. using the PayApp by iControl™ mobile payments platform.

Southwest Distribution Inc. has provided the news to the highest levels of Government and the community in the Washington Metro area since 1974.  Southwest provides service in every aspect of News distribution; Home, Business and Office, Government, Retail, Vending, and Alternate Delivery.  They are also an independent agent for The Daily Racing Form and the Washington Post.

Southwest is now using PayApp by iControl™ to invoice and collect for 100% of their retail accounts, weekly.  They have been using PayApp since October 2015 and is in the process of expanding their use of PayApp to other divisions of their distribution business.

Cary Northrop, the President and CEO of Southwest Distribution Inc., commented: “Manual payments using paper checks and cash is inefficient and a security risk to our business in the DC metropolitan area. PayApp is an excellent alternative and solution to our current out-of-date receivables process.”

Tal J. Zlotnitsky, chairman and co-CEO of iControl, said, "I am delighted that Cary and his team at Southwest Distribution have realized greater value and efficiency from PayApp, and that they have decided to expand its use throughout their organization."
