BROOKFIELD, Wis. (4/15/10)--Fiserv is offering a bill payment widget to help consumers pay bills from their online banking homepage. The service is available to financial institutions, including credit unions, that use Fiserv’s CheckFree online bill pay service. Deployed through Fiserv’s Corillian Online and eCom online banking solutions, the widget aims to increase online bill pay use by raising the visibility of the service within the user interface (Investment Weekly News April 17). Members can schedule payments from their credit union’s online banking homepage--which keeps bill payment “top of mind” for users, said Fiserv. “The average online banking user logs into the service 15 times per month, and the payment widget makes bill payment more easily accessible during these frequent visits,” said Jamie Deterding, senior vice president of Bank Solutions at Fiserv. “This improved accessibility leads to improved convenience for consumers, which can result in substantial increases in adoption and use of the service.” Brookfield, Wis.-based Fiserv is a global provider of financial services technology solutions for financial institutions.
