Atos Worldline, an Atos Origin Company, has enhanced its electronic signature platform with Utimaco Safeware AG's secure signature solution. This enables Atos Worldline's e-invoicing platform to securely process the German invoices of its international clients and to offer them a highly secure signature solution that complies with German tax regulations. Atos Worldline thus increases its capacity for processing European electronic invoices.
In regard to electronic signature and legal archiving, each member of the European Union included in its local legislation the European Directive regulation on electronic invoicing.
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. Atos Worldline's clients have a single provider that is able to deploy an electronic signature system in Europe with the level of security required by the different local tax authorities.
With a data handling capacity of more than one million invoices per month, Worldline Invoice is the leading European platform operating 24/7. It is compliant with the regulations of 11 European countries and is currently being rolled out in another eight countries, complete with an interface tailored to each country's language and laws.
Atos Worldline has chosen Utimaco's secure signature solution based on SignatureServer SmartCard - approved by the Bundesnetzagentur (German Federal Network Agency) to fully answer its international clients' e-invoicing needs in Germany and at a later stage, in some eastern European countries requiring the same level of security.
Enhanced by Utimaco's know-how in providing security and electronic signature systems, Worldline Invoice solution now meets the security level required by the German tax authorities thereby increasing Atos Worldline's capacity to process European electronic invoices and offer its clients today a highly secure electronic tax invoicing solution entirely compliant with the regulations in force in the European Union.
