Intuit Teams With CyberBills

Intuit Inc. said it will integrate CyberBills' Total Bill Management service into Quicken.com's online bill payment and presentment service, which is expected to launch this fall.

This agreement will enable consumers to receive and pay all of their bills at a single site on the Web at Quicken.com, Intuit said. By integrating the two services, Quicken.com will be able to offer online bills direct from the biller as well as the ability to manage paper bills online.

CyberBills' service allows consumers to view, pay, control and automate all of their bills over the Internet.

Portions of the "pay anyone" bill payment and presentment service will be integrated into the same interface Quicken.com users employ to manage their finances. Financial arrangements between the companies were not disclosed.

Quicken.com already offers users the ability to manage multiple investment portfolios, obtain financial information and advice and comparison shop for mortgages and insurance.

"As the pioneer of total bill presentment and payment over the Internet, CyberBills brings the consumer the same kind of enhanced and streamlined financial service that we are known for," said Intuit senior vice president and chief technology officer Eric Dunn.

"This partnership is a major step forward in Intuit's strategy to provide consumers with convenient and easy ways to manage their bills and finances on the Web."

CyberBills' Total Bill Management service allows consumers, via the Web, to see their bills as they would appear on paper and fully automate their payments.

Founded in 1998, CyberBills has developed and deployed methods and technology to support a single interface that allows consumers to view, pay, manage and automate all of their bills over the Internet.

CyberBills offers its service directly to consumers at StatusFactory.com.

Intuit markets the personal finance software Quicken; TurboTax, a tax preparation software; and QuickBooks, a small business accounting software.
