It’s a little early for a June wedding. But as the saying goes, what fintech synergies bring together, let no man put asunder.
Intuit, a global fintech leader with a demonstrated affection for Finovate alums, has announced its acquisition of billpay innovator, Check. The Palo Alto-based startup formerly known as Pageonce has grown from its humble origins as a way for consumers to track their expenses to what is now a fully-grown digital wallet combining billpay, PFM, and mobile.
And a potentially critical component of Intuit’s consumer-facing personal finance initiative, as well. Intuit purchased fellow Finovate alum, Mint, in 2009, and it is believed that bringing Check’s technology into the mix will enhance the company’s ability to provide a more comprehensive PFM/billpay solution.
“We look forward to merging our talent, mobile mindset and spirit of innovation with Intuit to build products that delight consumers and become a part of their everyday financial lives.”
