CheckFree Delivers Web Billing and Payment 3.0

Electronic billing and payment company CheckFree Corp. delivered its CheckFree Web Billing and Payment version 3.0 solution for financial institutions and other consumer service providers.

The company said v3.0 gives financial institutions a highly brandable user interface that ties into the CheckFree Genesis 2000 EBP engine, which supports the entire electronic billing and payment cycle, from delivery to viewing to the ultimate payment of the bill.

As the newest front-end for the CheckFree Genesis 2000 platform, the CheckFree Web Billing and Payment v 3.0 solution offers enhanced scalability, increased speed to market for electronic billing and payment as well as access to a suite of electronic billing and payment services.

"The next generation of the CheckFree Web Billing and Payment solution extends the benefit of the end-to-end CheckFree Genesis 2000 payment engine to an increasing number of financial institutions, partners and other consumer service providers," said Pete Sinisgalli, CheckFree president and chief operating officer.

"By deploying this new user interface, our customers can leverage the most advanced electronic billing and payment services available and quickly access enhanced features as they become available."

CheckFree said it designed its new EBP front end to handle Multiple Bank Accounts and to allow each family to designate two authorized users to access a single electronic billing and payment service.

End users can track the status of their online payments from their banking or brokerage Web site. CheckFree offers "pay everyone," which enables consumers to make payments from their computers to anyone to whom they would write a check.

This includes all billers, even those who do not present bills electronically, such as day care centers or lawn maintenance providers.

Customizable front-end capabilities allow banks and brokerages to tie the product into their overall look and feel to present a seamless online banking experience.
