Company Information/eCommerce

Karlsruhe (euro adhoc) - Karlsruhe, 12 March 2013 - asknet AG, a leading
provider of international e-commerce solutions for digital products and
e-procurement portals in the research and training sectors, was awarded the
"Software Made in Germany" (SMiG) quality seal by the Federal association of SME
IT service providers (BITMi) today at CeBIT. BITMi's  SMiG initiative
demonstrates the German IT sector's high quality standards.

Candidates must meet intensive testing criteria to receive the quality seal
award: well-thought-out design, proven solutions, well-engineered production
processes, innovation, and competent customer service. In addition, both major
development steps in the production process and software quality control must be
carried out in Germany. The future compatibility of software is another
important criterion.

"We are very pleased about this award," said Michael Konrad, CEO of asknet AG.
"The seal is an endorsement of our corporate strategy, which is to provide
excellent solutions to our clients. This assures users that asknet is meeting
the highest quality standards now and will continue to do so in the future."
