May 2, 2007

The DEAMS mission is to support the war fighter with timely, accurate and reliable financial information.

Montreal, QC, May 3, 2007 — Silanis announced today that its e-signature solution had been selected for the new Defense Enterprise Accounting and Management System (DEAMS) supporting the accounting and financial management functions of the US Air Force, the U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS).

The DEAMS mission is to support the war fighter with timely, accurate and reliable financial information, ultimately enabling efficient and effective decision making by Department of Defense (DoD) managers.

Silanis' ApproveIt® XHTML Server e-signature solution will help in automating the following processes: general ledger, budget distribution, control and execution; customer orders and customer billing; collections; purchase requests; obligations; receipts and acceptance; accounts payable and disbursements; cost accounting; and analysis and decision support.

With transactions entered directly into the system, the need for paper forms will eventually be eliminated. The system will route electronic transactions to the appropriate users for online approvals, satisfying internal control requirements and speeding up the process.

Silanis is the premier provider of electronic signature solutions to DoD, with Army, Navy and Air Force personnel using ApproveIt to accelerate decision-making processes, improve responsiveness, maintain preparedness and reduce operating costs. Silanis' wide range of DoD clients includes the US Army and Joint Chiefs of Staff, both of which have enterprise licenses.

Silanis solutions offer seamless operation with e-mail, workflow and content management systems. Users can digitally sign Web-based forms using their digital certificate, smart card/DoD Common Access Card (CAC) or Silanis ePersona file.

Silanis' ApproveIt XHTML Server allows organizations to integrate electronic signatures and Web processes using corporate Internet, Extranet or Intranet sites. It complements Silanis' ApproveIt® Desktop solution, so that organizations can use a common technology and a single electronic credential to deploy e-signatures within both desktop and Web applications.

Silanis offers the only enterprise electronic signature platform for business applications requiring e-signing, e-delivery and e-vaulting of business records. For this reason, organizations that choose Silanis as their electronic signature provider are guaranteed a flexible and scalable technology that will grow with their enterprise needs.
