Electronic delivery options

The eMessaging service offers multiple presentment options that allow your company to take advantage of the many delivery channels the Internet has to offer.

  • Presentment at a company-branded Web site with email notifications sent to enrolled users
  • Delivery via company branded mobile apps for iPhone, Android or Blackberry devices, with secure links to full statement details

BH Web Mail

Online statements and bills can either have the same look and feel as your company’s current printed statements or be completely redesigned for quicker access to select information. BH Web Mail service dynamically presents statements in HTML or PDF format, with links to additional services and personalized messages.

Email notifications are automatically sent to all enrolled users, with links back for secure login.

BH Mobile Mail

While smart phones are quickly becoming a consumer’s preferred communication tool, trying to manage bills sent via email or presented at a Web site does not provide most users with an optimal experience. With email, users often struggle to track and manage bills when they are receiving between 60-100 other emails a day, and with Web sites the content is often not optimized for a phone’s screen and it takes a considerable amount of time to access a mailers site and logon before a statement can even be viewed.

This is why mobile apps are the best method for securely receiving digital mailing information via a smart phone. Easy to know when new documents have arrived and organize content, with optimized viewing so that content can be quickly read and acted upon. BH Mobile Mail sends summary information to a user’s mobile app, with links to view full statement details or access electronic payment services.

Targeted marketing

With the Bell and Howell solution, businesses can easily profile their customers based on selected demographic, account and marketing research information. These profiles can be used to define special marketing messages that are optimized for Web or mobile app presentment.


The Bell and Howell solution offers standard reports for tracking user enrollment in all electronic delivery services, and activities such as the date that current and previous statements have been accessed and viewed. The service enables companies to also define new report criteria and parameters that provide insight into other user and account information such as:

  • Demographic information such as city, state, and ZIP
  • Statement summary information such as amount due, due date, and previous payment
  • Customized, biller-defined information such as transaction details and account information not found in a billing file

Customer service

A Web-based interface allows customer service representatives to remotely access account profiles to perform new customer enrollments, change passwords and email addresses.

Customer service representatives can access current and historical information to answer questions related to statement details such as transactions and payments. They can also use this information to generate customer reprints and email statements upon request.

World-class data center

Bell and Howell has partnered with the leading co-location facility provider so that we can offer our clients a secure, protected environment that includes three different Internet carriers, redundant power, fire detection systems, the highest levels of physical security available, and 24 x 7 management by technical experts.

Data transformation

The Electronic Statement Presentment software enables your company to convert billing data from AFP, AFPDS, ASCII, DJDE, Metacode or PCL format to XML for easy data mining and presentment capabilities.

Your XML data is securely stored in a database and only accessible by authenticated customers and internal users.
