OneTree's VAT Refund Solution Achieves Two Accreditations By IBM.

OneTree's VAT refund solution -the only commercially available pan-European solution for compliance with the EU Directive (2008/9/EC) for VAT refund- achieves two accreditations by IBM, 'Government Industry Framework' and 'Ready for DB2'.

OneTree Solutions announced today that its VAT Refund Core Asset (VRCA) solution has achieved the 'Government Industry Framework' and the 'Ready for DB2' accreditations by IBM.

VRCA is a fully integrated information system, which enables European member states (countries) to comply with the VAT refund directive of the European Commission (2008/9/EC). VRCA embeds IBM software components, namely WebSphere Process Server and DB2. After a strict validation process by IBM, VRCA acquired two different accreditations, namely the 'Government Industry Framework' and the 'Ready for DB2'.

IBM accreditations

The IBM Government Industry Framework gives clients the benefit of repeatable technology, faster and lower-risk implementations in their current environment, and collaboration across different government agencies and countries. The Ready for DB2 validation demonstrates that VRCA meets key IBM integration standards for DB2 database software.

VRCA, an industry-compliant IT solution

"We are proud that VRCA has achieved two important IBM accreditations. This proves OneTree's commitment to using industry-grade components to power its solutions and provide powerful business benefits to its customers", commented Dr. Denis Avrilionis, founder of the OneTree group of companies.
