The move has been hinted since the beginning of the year (CI No 3,084), but things began happening when Integrion invested in Checkfree Corp and signed a 10 year outsourcing contract for its bill payment processing (CI No 3,281). Fenimore predicted Microsoft would release Gold-enabled releases next year, and that Integrion would offer interoperability with OFX financial software, such as Intuit Inc’s Quicken.
