Allied Payment Network's FlexPay Internet Bill Pay Solution Integrates With PicturePay®, Features Transaction-Based Pricing Model
FORT WAYNE, Ind. --(Business Wire)--
Payment Network, a provider of online and mobile bill payment
services to the financial industry, announced today that FlexPay,
Allied's Internet bill pay solution, now offers banks and credit unions
full integration with Allied's industry-leading PicturePay®
mobile photo bill pay solution, as well as flexible, per-transaction
pricing rather than the traditional per-user pricing model.
Through this integration, FlexPay users can now see PicturePay photos
within Internet bill pay, thereby creating an archive of past bills.
"FlexPay's integration with PicturePay means that users can view
pictures of bills they've paid with their smartphone," said Ralph
Marcuccilli, president and CEO of Allied. "Customers are telling us that
they love having a cloud-based archive of their bills."
The integration offers several other advantages. FlexPay paees are
populated from PicturePay photos, and payee lists are synced between
both products. FlexPay seamlessly integrates with any online banking
platform to match the look and feel of an institution's existing website
to provide bank customers and credit union members with greater
continuity in their online banking experience. Users can also choose
from a variety of available user interface formats to match their
individual preferences. Additionally, FlexPay's expedited payment
options provide customers and members with more control over the timing
of their payments.
Significantly, Allied offers an alternative to traditional pricing for
bill pay services. "It's difficult for community financial institutions
to justify pushing Internet bill pay usage, because on the surface, it
just drives up their overhead costs," said Marcuccilli. "But with
FlexPay's transaction-based pricing model, institutions can provide
Internet bill pay to all users without bearing a cost for those
users who are not making any payments. At Allied, we deliver affordable
technology that even the largest banks don't have and help any financial
institution develop competitive advantage."
