Talus Pay, a payment processing solutions provider, has acquired two companies, Jobox.ai (“Jobox”), a FinTech company servicing the home services industry, and Clarus Merchant Services (“Clarus”), a provider of integrated B2B payment solutions.
In combination with Jobox and Clarus, Talus Pay now processes more than $9 billion in annual payments volume for over 22,000 merchant customers across the United States. Pottebaum joins Talus Pay’s leadership team as general manager of its Clarus portfolio. Bloch has been named Talus Pay’s chief strategy officer and Kaushik Pendurthi, also from Jobox, has been named chief technology officer.
“We are excited to welcome both Jobox and Clarus to the Talus Pay team,” said Talus Pay CEO Kim Fitzsimmons. “We have tremendous end-to-end technology infrastructure and sales and service platforms,” added Fitzsimmons. “Adding Jobox and Clarus gives us additional proprietary software and scale in complementary business-to-business industry verticals.”
Jobox puts business into the hands of hard-working, on-the-go, home services professionals across the United States. Job matching, scheduling and payments, plus customer communications and inventory can be managed all from one mobile app so that these small business owners can focus on providing top-notch service on every job, every step of the way, to build customer relationships and loyalty.
“Jobox is a terrific tool for underserved home and facility services professionals to help them efficiently run their businesses and increase their bottom lines,” said Shay Bloch, co-founder and CEO of Jobox. “By joining forces with Talus Pay, we can accelerate our market share in the home services end market while having the opportunity to accelerate entry into new market verticals.”
Clarus has deep and trusted expertise in a wide range of business-to-business verticals, credit unions, wholesale distribution groups, and building materials distribution companies. The company offers unmatched customer care, competitive pricing and the highest level of cardholder security.
“We have significant portfolio and business synergies with Talus Pay which makes joining forces natural,” said Eric Pottebaum, president of Clarus. “We are excited to be able to offer our merchant customers new and innovative solutions from Talus Pay, and to combine forces to help drive long-term growth.”
