Today’s consumers are more connected and informed than ever before. They expect products and services to match the mobility and flexibility of their lifestyles. So why should their bill payments be any different?
Truth is, consumers are always looking for the newest ways to manage and pay their bills. Providing solutions that are forward-thinking and customer-focused can help businesses establish a competitive advantage. An electronic bill presentment and payment (EBPP) solution can help your business get started on this journey.
What is EBPP?
An EBPP solution integrates seamlessly into existing systems to present bills electronically and accept payments from customers. EBPP helps bridge the gap between digital payments (web, Pay by Text, intelligent personal assistants, etc.) and payments generated from more traditional channels (agent, IVR, kiosk, etc.). In addition, an EBPP solution supports multiple payment methods (ACH, credit cards, debit cards, cash, etc.) while giving customers the ability to choose from a variety of payment options (recurring payments, payment plans, AutoPay, etc.).

What are the benefits of EBPP for businesses?
Bill payments have a direct impact on a business’s bottom line, making it imperative to deliver a user experience that works for all customers. The personalization that an EBPP solution can provide makes it easier for businesses to offer a user-centric experience no matter how customers choose to pay.
