I would have considered that "local institution compatibility" in the 90's. Why do you want your PC software to automate bill payment when the financial institution can do it for you.

i.e. I don't pay ANY bill manually. Phone, Cable, Internet, Taxes, Water, electricity, Mortgage, insurance, magazine subscriptions ... All taken from my account automatically in due time.

I just import the transactions I download from the banks. All my banks provide a suitable format.
