An idea was born
March 31, 2015
Founders Shendon Ewans and Quentin Marsh were catching up and started comparing how each one paid their household bills. They discovered how vastly different their approaches were. Quentin was strictly digital. He wanted every bill delivered via email but had to action it immediately otherwise he would forget or lose them. Shendon was predominately paper based. He would receive most of his bills by mail and once they were paid, he would file them in his shoe-box. Both methods wasted time and had flaws. They decided that there must be a better way – just take the email bills, store them digitally and pay them before its due date. Imagine having your own robot assistant working away in the background dealing with your bills for you. The idea of Gobbill was born!
