BillMatrix and Venture Encoding Join to Serve Mortgage Industry; Consumer Convenience is Primary Goal for Alliance.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

DALLAS & FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 27, 2004

Venture Encoding Service, Ltd., a provider of paper and electronic document services, today announced that it has formed an alliance with BillMatrix Corporation, a provider of outsourced telephone- and Internet-based payment services, to offer best-in-class e-payment processing. Mortgage servicers who use Venture's E-Statement product can include an embedded E-Payment link that takes consumers directly to a BillMatrix-hosted website to complete transactions. Once authenticated, a consumer can make either a recurring payment or a one-time payment on his or her timetable, offering the ultimate combination of convenience and control.

"The combination of Venture's pioneering bill presentment capabilities and BillMatrix's decade of electronic payment experience will help improve efficiencies for mortgage servicers," said Venture Encoding President Kenny Hargis. "In addition, our mortgage servicing customers will be able to take advantage of BillMatrix's intriguing ATM/debit payment method."

By offering borrowers the electronic ATM/debit card payment method, a mortgage servicer can eliminate virtually all returned items. With an ATM/debit transaction, the BillMatrix system uses real-time validation to determine if funds are available in the borrower's account. If so, the system then assigns those funds to the mortgage servicer. When combined with an ACH/electronic check option, these expanded payment options offer a true competitive advantage to the mortgage servicer. BillMatrix took the first ATM/debit payments on behalf of a mortgage client in late 2003 and announced the initial success of the program last month.

"Venture consistently develops and delivers valuable new products and services that few in the document industry can match," said President and CEO of BillMatrix Scott Walker. "We are particularly impressed with Venture's practical approach to electronic presentment, which provides servicers with substantial cost savings and consumer-satisfying convenience."
