CHICAGO (PRNewswire) — PepsiAmericas, the world's second-largest manufacturer, seller and distributor of PepsiCo beverages, is getting greener with its new Electronic Bill Presentment & Payment (EBPP) solution provided by OBRIEN and SolvEdge. OBRIEN/SolvEdge is a strategic technology partner that helps companies gain efficiency and reduce costs. The PepsiAmericas customized EBPP solution (https://www.pepsiamericasbillpay.com), which features 24/7 self-service billing/reporting and a robust communication business solution, was developed in response to customer requests for a self-service electronic payment option. The OBRIEN/SolvEdge EBPP solution was recently released to approximately 50,000 PepsiAmericas customers and received a very positive response.
"Selecting OBRIEN/SolvEdge as a provider was easy," said Bill Holada, PepsiAmericas' Director of Financial Services.

The OBRIEN/SolvEdge joint venture is in step with the growth of the digital world and the increased focus on productivity and efficiency in today's competitive environment.
