June 1, 2003

Desktop to the Web solution suite ensures smooth transition to paperless approvals

June 2, 2003Montreal, Canada, June 2, 2003 - Silanis Technology, the leading developer of electronic approval and e-transaction solutions announced today the introduction of the Silanis eApproval Suite. The solution Suite is designed to facilitate the automation of business approval processes including the creation of legally enforceable electronically signed documents, agreements and contracts. Organizations can now maximize existing investments in business automation technology, and realize the full benefits of improved productivity and reduced costs.

The eApproval Suite consists of Silanis' flagship product, ApproveIt® Desktop, and two more recently announced, web-based solutions, ApproveIt XHTML Server and ApproveIt Web Server. Each product in the Suite can work independently to meet organizational requirements for document and form signing, or all three can interoperate to deliver organizations with a complete internal-to-external approval platform.

"As organizations transition from the paper world and begin wide-scale adoption of electronic approval processes, they are looking toward complete solutions that meet their inward and outward facing needs", says Tommy Petrogiannis, president of Silanis Technology. "With the introduction of the Silanis eApproval Suite, we are leveraging our proven solutions to deliver one platform that can be implemented on a modular basis to meet current needs, and to grow as their needs evolve."

About the Silanis eApproval Suite

Each of the Silanis eApproval Suite products was developed to meet the market requirements of real-world business processes in the financial services, government, pharmaceutical and FDA regulated markets.

ApproveIt Desktop is Silanis' sixth generation flagship approval management product. Built to replicate signing and approval processes in the electronic world, ApproveIt Desktop enables document signing within common desktop applications and forms packages including Microsoft® Word®, Microsoft Excel®, Adobe® Acrobat®, PureEdge InternetForms® and Adobe FormFlow® and Forms Designer®. With advanced automation features like support for multiple signatures and sectional signing, and robust support of public-key infrastructure technology, the product is the most feature-rich desktop solution on the market.

ApproveIt XHTML Server replicates the approval automation features of ApproveIt Desktop for signing of internal and external Internet forms across the web. Based on open industry standards, such as J2EE, XML, and XHTML, the solution integrates seamlessly with an organization's existing IT infrastructure, and leverages web-based Intranet, Internet and Extranet forms.

ApproveIt Web Server completes the Suite, providing all the elements for eSign consumer consent, advanced proof of document delivery, and server-based web signing in either a point-of-sale or pure online, zero-download environment. Designed to deliver a turnkey solution, ApproveIt Web Server addresses the legal, functional, volume and scalability requirements of an enterprise's mission critical processes. Originally developed for the financial services market, the solution now offers enhanced flexibility to ensure a fit into new markets that are engaging consumers and civilians in structured web or kiosk-based approval processes.

In March Silanis also introduced the Silanis eTransaction Suite, a complimentary product suite that was developed to meet the stringent requirements of the financial services market for the creation and control of legally enforceable transactions that involve negotiable instruments or transferable records.
