Billserv.com Inc. has contracted with Checkfree Corp. for bill presentment and payment services.
Billserv.com will organize billing data from small businesses' in-house computer systems and ready it for electronic presentment.
The company will transmit the data to Checkfree, which will present the bills electronically to customers and process the payments.
Billserv.com plans to test its services with a San Antonio-area utility this month and go into operation by early May, said Michael Long, the company's chairman and chief executive officer.
Mr. Long and other managers at Billserv.com previously worked together at Billing Concepts Inc., a large telecommunications billing company in San Antonio.
