Bottomline Adopts Oracle(R) Fusion Middleware to Enhance Integration with Oracle's JD Edwards and Oracle E-Business Suite.

Delivers Advanced Document and Payments Process Automation to Oracle Users

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- Bottomline Technologies (NASDAQ: EPAY), a leading provider of collaborative payment and invoice automation solutions, today announced enhanced integration of its leading document and payments process automation solutions with Oracle's JD Edwards and Oracle E-Business Suite using Oracle Fusion Middleware. As a Certified Partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork, Bottomline provides solutions that extend the capabilities of transactional document composition, automated routing, delivery and retrieval to thousands of Oracle customers worldwide.

Oracle Fusion Middleware provides a low-cost method for integrating third-party software and services with any Oracle application. Through support for Oracle Fusion Middleware, Bottomline customers can confidently embrace Oracle's strategic direction while optimizing their ERP systems with advanced capabilities for transactional document output, including purchase orders, invoices, AP checks and electronic payments.

"Oracle Fusion Middleware integration is a key initiative for Bottomline across all of its document, payments and invoice automation solutions," said Gareth Priest, Vice President of Global Product Management for Bottomline Technologies. "Support for Oracle Fusion Middleware protects our customer's investments and enables them to enjoy lower total cost-of-ownership and increased agility as they transition to Oracle's Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)."

Oracle Fusion Middleware provides bi-directional integration with any Oracle application or business process via Oracle BPEL Process Manager. The connectivity embraces Web Services to allow any Bottomline software solution to initiate or be part of any business process. This rapid integration enables Bottomline's advanced document and payments automation capabilities to appear as a link from within Oracle JDeveloper.

"As companies move beyond point-to-point integration, they require an SOA-based middleware platform that enables them to deliver integrated solutions regardless of the underlying application environment or product release," said John Gawkowski, Vice President, Partner Technology Solutions at Oracle. "Oracle Fusion Middleware represents an integration approach that shares an open and common technology foundation with Oracle applications. This is a key differentiator for Bottomline as they continue to drive customer value from their advanced financial process automation solutions."
