Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1016996A2] A bill processing server and method forms part of an overall digital document delivery system and is primarily responsible for maintaining an account database which in turn contains information concerning the account balance of the customers which receive electronic bills. The bill processing server interacts with a router instruction processor for receipt of bill data objects for updating the account database as well as for receiving customer response information via an interactive bill presentment server so as to maintain the account database including receipt of payment information from the customers. The bill processing server can send account information to an associated payment processing system. The bill processing server can also generate reports concerning the status of the account database and can further generate notification to the customer of an existence of an electronic bill. Finally the bill processing server can generate links to secondary documents to be associated with a generated primary document (bill). <IMAGE>
