STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In today's fast-paced high-tech world many companies are looking to use technology to make life simpler and more convenient for their customers. If MXenergy's new online customer service programs are any indication, customers are highly appreciative.

MXenergy, one of the nation's leading independent energy providers, now offers multiple online services; including online bill pay, setting up payment arrangements, and checking electric and gas usage and on current rates. The response from consumers has been highly positive with a record number of customers now enrolled in MXenergy's online applications.

"We're seeing this program grow by leaps and bounds," says Kimberley Helm, MXenergy Senior Manager of Compliance and Customer Resolution. "Clearly customers are finding our online services convenient and easy to use."

Customers can pay their monthly bill online through automatic withdrawal from their checking account or by using their major credit cards in the new recurring payment option, in addition to multiple other services. Helm says she expects the program to only continue to grow.

"Of course our first priority is financial security and customers can rest assured that all online bill paying is done safely and securely," says Helm. "As more of our customers become aware of the online services available to them, I expect the enrollment numbers to continue to skyrocket."

Information about online bill pay and all other online customer service applications through eServices is available at www.mxenergy.com .
