Frankfurt/Main, March 7th 2007

Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin company, will once again participate at this year's CeBIT in Hanover from 15 to 21 March 2007. Present on Bitkom Partner's booth (Hall 9, Booth C52), Atos Worldline will showcase new solutions and concepts, including its upgraded card management system for processing the electronic health card, in association with the integrated security solution in the telematics infrastructure, along with the use of signature cards in its electronic invoicing offering “Worldline eInvoice”.

“Worldline eGK KAMS”
At this year's event, Atos Worldline will showcase the upgrade of its card application management system “Worldline eGK KAMS” to “Worldline eGK JSS” (Java Security Server). Through “Worldline eGK JSS” - an integrated, highly available and highly secured solution for the public key infrastructure provided by Gematik for the electronic health card - security is ensured against general access to patient data. The solution is modular and covers all safety requirements for the card application management service. In addition, it can also be integrated into the existing telematics infrastructure components without great expense. The security requirements for key management, card personalisation, online card updates and health insurance agency requests (VSDD) along with card application directory services are supported in accordance with Gematik's requirements.

With the eInvoice solution, the paperless exchange of invoices enables savings of around 50%. With just the 18 billion invoices exchanged every year in Europe, around 100 billion euros could be saved annually through an EU-wide switch to digital billing. eInvoice now even makes it possible to take into account different legal and technical requirements in terms of electronic B2B exchange.

In order to simplify the B2B electronic transactions for its European clients, Atos Worldline offers its electronic signature and legal archiving solution – Worldline Invoice – which runs on a unique collaborative web platform across all the European countries.
