Bottomline Technologies Inc. announced it would partner with Bisys Inc. to create a secure disbursement system.
Little Falls, N.J.-based Bisys will embed Bottomline's Branchgard and Checkgard security products into its TotalPlus branch automation line. More than 400 community banks use Bisys' TotalPlus products.
"Our primary motivation is to ensure that our clients have quick access to 'best of breed' products; where they are invented is irrelevant as long as we can work with the manufacturers," said Paul Bourke, president and chief operating officer of Bisys.
Branchgard allows branch platforms or teller stations to generate personalized starter checks, counter and cashier checks, check letters, money orders, and loan payment coupons.
Checkgard aids applications that require high-quality batch check printing, such as accounts payable, payroll, Christmas club checks, and interest and dividend checks.
