Billshark has some exciting tech news: We’re now integrated with Google Cloud Vision! We always strive to be at the forefront of technology advances to make all of our Billshark customers’ experience the absolute best (and fastest) it can be. Before we get into the details of what exactly this means for you and how it makes your experience that much more awesome, we would like to start by thanking our lead developer, Michel Mora, for coming up with the idea and implementing the integration.
What exactly is Google Cloud Vision? Google Cloud Vision is an image classification tool that detects individual objects and faces within images, and finds and reads printed words contained within images. Wondering how this helps you? Well, Google Cloud Vision gives Billshark the ability to become more efficient, which in turn lets our sharks attack your bills and secure savings even faster!
Now, when a bill is sent to us by you (whether by app or website submission), our Google Cloud Integration can automatically detect what type of bill you’re sending us, whether it’s CableTV, cell phone, etc., and then gives our sharks all pertinent information needed to start the negotiation process on your behalf. This allows us to better serve you by allowing us to spend more time negotiating your bills and less time sifting through paperwork. Pretty cool, right? YES! The best part about all of this? Our new and improved turnaround time is 2-3 business days! That’s significantly faster than some of our competitors who have customers waiting a full month for their savings. You can be on your way to saving 25% on your monthly bills in just a few days and one simple upload. Does it get any better than that?
