CheckFree, a provider of financial
processing and services for e-commerce, and Equifax E-Banking Solutions, a
provider of electronic banking software, signed a three-year reseller
agreement for electronic billing and payment (EBP).
Equifax E-Banking Solutions (formerly Goldleaf Technologies) is a wholly owned
subsidiary of Atlanta-based Equifax Inc., the large financial
information and processing solutions company.
Equifax E-Banking Solutions will resell CheckFree E-Bill services to its
customers, which include banks, credit unions, and saving institutions
worldwide. Equifax E-Banking Solutions has been selected by IBAA Bancard to provide Internet banking
to IBAA (Independent Bankers Association of America) member-banks, thus
allowing Equifax E-Banking Solutions to expand its outsourcing services to
include EBP to more than 5,000 IBAA community banks in the United States.
“When we decided to expand our service offering to include electronic bill
presentment and payment, CheckFree quickly became the obvious choice,” said
David Peterson, senior vice president/general manager of Equifax. “By
partnering with CheckFree to become an authorized reseller of CheckFree E-Bill
we can provide sophisticated Internet-based solutions for our customers,
allowing them to effectively compete in the marketplace.”
