CheckFree Launches CheckFree i-Solutions

CheckFree Holdings Corp. said that BlueGill Technologies, which it acquired on April 28, will become a new operating group called CheckFree i-Solutions within the company's Software Division.

CheckFree (CKFR) i-Solutions "combines the strengths of CheckFree and BlueGill Technologies to provide integrated software and services to accelerate business-to-consumer and business-to-business electronic billing and payment and statement delivery applications," the company said.

What was BlueGill's i-Series software solution suite will now be marketed under the CheckFree i-Solutions brand, and will be integrated with CheckFree's Internet distribution and payments technology infrastructure, as well as CheckFree's integration and professional services offerings.

CheckFree i-Solutions offers billers and Biller Service Providers a fully integrated solution designed to accelerate getting billing and statement content to the Internet, the company said.

CheckFree, founded as an electronic payments processor in 1981, launched its integrated electronic billing and payment solution, CheckFree E-Bill, in March of 1997.

The Company now has contracts with 121 of the nation's top billers to provide online billing and payment through its network of partnerships with more than 150 banks, brokerage firms, Internet portals and content sites, and personal financial management (PFM) software.
