Ezypay, a local Chatswood business, who recently won the Best Medium Business Award in NSW in the recent Telstra Business Awards.
Ezypay is a subscription billing company, offering payment technology which allows fast growing businesses to collect recurring customer payments.
Close to 20 years ago Ezypay started from a real business need. Owner George Holman ran a gym in Pennant Hills called Vital. He was looking for a way to increase revenue, and retention. After a trip to a fitness conference in the US he discovered that many clubs in the US were offering direct debit payments. Breaking up a large amount into smaller more affordable amounts meant more sales for their gym. George started the billing system in his gym and within a year his membership grew from 200 to 4,000. Other gym owners noticed the fast membership growth and asked him how he did it. He told them he was using direct debit. They wanted to do it too so George created the Ezypay billing solution and did it for them.
Now nearly 20 years later Ezypay has evolved from the early days of being a finance company to seeing itself as a technology company. Financial technology or fintech is a huge business growth area. Ezypay is riding the wave of that growth expanding quickly into 6 Asian countries last year- China, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, the Philippines and Hong Kong – all within 9 months. So now this local Chatswood company collects subscription and membership payments for fast growing businesses in Asia too.
“This year there were over 5,000 businesses entering the award so to be named as the best in NSW is a huge achievement.” states Trent Brown, Ezypay CEO. “It means a lot to our team to have their hard work and passion recognised.”
When asked what’s the secret to be an award winning business? Trent Brown explains “An excellent plan, a great team and persistence. Or it could just be the great Ramen in Chatswood.”
