NEWARK, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2009) - Payment Processing, Inc. (PPI), the leader in integrated payments, today announced a partnership with Easy Business Software to provide integrated payment processing for physicians' offices using medical management business applications, positioning PPI as a key player within the medical office payments technology sector.
