San Mateo, CA.—September 26, 2000—NetLedger, Inc., the leading application service provider (ASP) that enables small businesses to run totally online, today announced it has joined forces with San Francisco-based eBenefits to bring together online accounting with human resources services.
As the first step of the agreement, both companies will offer co-branded services to their users. Effective immediately, NetLedger customers have access to a co-branded site where they can sign up for eBenefits HR services. eBenefits customers, in turn, have the same easy access to NetLedger's accounting solution.
The second phase of the agreement will result in a full integration between NetLedger™ and eBenefits VirtualHR™. This will allow an exchange of appropriate data between the two applications. Users will enjoy synchronization of employee information between applications and the ease of use associated with single sign-on between the two services. The integration is expected to complete by the end of the year.
"This partnership with eBenefits, coupled with ADP's EasyPayNetSM integration, represents another giant leap forward in our strategy to use the NetLedger™ accounting solution as a springboard to virtually any and all services that a small company needs to keep its operations running efficiently and with minimal effort," said Evan Goldberg, president and CEO of NetLedger, Inc. "eBenefits is an incredibly valuable addition to the suite of services already integrated with NetLedger."

"We are very excited about our partnership with NetLedger. By integrating our services with the payroll function, the efficiencies we can bring to growing companies are now even greater."
