portfolio for Austria

Munich, April 6, 2006 – Munich-based solutions provider SHS
Informationssysteme AG and the Kreditschutzverband von 1870 (KSV) are
pooling their expertise in the field of credit management. The goal of
their close cooperation is to establish a joint portfolio of credit
management solutions for the Austrian market. The KSV is the market leader
in Austria for consumer and company data. Over the past years, it has
developed into a modern information company with over 20,000 members and 21

solutions. The SHS Agency Gateway in the SHS solutions portfolio enables

software offers customized credit management solutions for nearly every
field of application. The KSV, in turn, provides targeted credit
information for individuals and companies in Austria, as well as collection
services, insolvency representation and address management services.

Thanks to the strong presence and years of experience that the KSV has on
the international market – particularly in Eastern Europe – this
cooperation will give the international clients of SHS the opportunity to
receive high-quality credit information on customers in Central and Eastern
