Government payment processor General Payment Systems has signed an agreement with Riverside Superior Court in California to support alternative payments.

The agreement follows a test of General Payments’ kiosks in Riverside’s Moreno Valley location. The courts will add kiosks to the Larsen, Hemet and Southwest Superior Court locations.

General Payment Systems' kiosks in Riverside have been customized to accept cash and checks as payment for traffic tickets. The newly developed software and kiosk can also dispense cash to the user for change.

"Our agreement with Riverside sets the stage for the largest alternative payment account in company history," says Ron Hodge, CEO of General Payment Systems, in a Nov. 15 press release. "And it gives us further traction in California where winning RFP's and accounts can increase the likelihood of future penetration. Ultimately, we expect Riverside and all its locations to be a critical source of revenue and market leverage."

General Payment also recently installed biometric technology in Georgia courts and has built a check automation system.
