America Online and financial software company Intuit announced plans to offer an online service for managing household bills. Powered by View and Pay Bills by Quicken, the companies will make the service available across AOL brands in early 2000. Under the five-year agreement, Intuit will be the exclusive integrated provider of this bill-tracking and payment service to AOL and AOL.com. The new service will give consumers the ability to view, track, and pay all their bills, whether they are issued electronically or as "hard copy" paper bills. Intuit has been the primary source of original programming for the Personal Finance Web Channel on AOL.com since 1998. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
