Bottomline Technologies Integrates Accuity IBAN File Data


SKOKIE, IL - October 4, 2006 - Accuity is pleased to announce that
Bottomline Technologies, a leading provider of payments and invoice
automation software and services, has integrated Accuity's IBAN File with
its BankScan International solution. The company's use of Accuity's IBAN
reference data will help ensure the highest possible levels of payment
straight through processing (STP) for customers.

For organizations seeking to comply with SWIFT's MT103+ messaging
standards and EU regulation 2560/2001, Accuity's IBAN File offers access
to over 200,000 records for more than 7,000 European financial
institutions. The integration of this data file with Bottomline's BankScan
International, which enables users to automatically or manually check BIC
and IBAN information, will allow Bottomline's customers to further reduce
payment processing costs, avoid unnecessary bank charges and improve query
rates.

Bottomline is currently leveraging Accuity's Global Payment File(TM) with
WebSeries®, its Web-based payments automation platform. Accuity's Global
