CheckFree Corporation (Nasdaq: CKFR), a leading provider of
financial electronic commerce services and products, and Netonomy,
the global leader in customer self-service (CSS) and bill analysis
solutions for the communications industry, today announced a

the joint solution, billers will be able to allow consumers and
business customers to manage their accounts, buy new products and
services, review, analyze and pay bills, and resolve any problems
through a single user interface at the biller's own Web site.
Business customers have expanded capabilities enabling them to bulk
order new products and services and route those orders for management
approval, activate accounts and process service or account changes on
behalf of their employees, reassign accounts between staff, analyze
order and billing information, automatically separate personal
billing transactions from business transactions and report and
resolve problems online.

self-service user experience.
"CheckFree has a long track record of supporting billers in
deepening their online relationships with its business and
consumer-based electronic billing software and services," said John
Hughes, executive vice president, Netonomy, Inc. "CheckFree's
expertise in delivering solutions across many industry verticals
makes them the ideal partner to broaden the reach of our customer
self-service technology and deliver expanded capabilities to billing
organizations. For billers, the CheckFree-Netonomy partnership
represents the broadest combined customer self-service, provisioning
and e-billing offering available today. This is a clear statement of
CheckFree and Netonomy's commitment to leading the billing industry's
vision for the coming years."
"Netonomy's industry-leading analytical customer self-service
capabilities strengthen CheckFree's reliable, best-in-class
electronic billing software. When a bill is online, interactive and
self-service enabled, it becomes a window into more cross-sales,
lower service costs and enhanced communication," said Matt Lewis,
executive vice president, CheckFree Corporation. "The Netonomy
partnership gives our customers all of these capabilities combined
with CheckFree's world-class reliability. This balance is critical,
