Evolution Benefits Offers Direct, Real-Time Data Access to Benny® Central

Saves Time and Money for Third Party Administrators and Employers

AVON, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2006 -- Evolution Benefits, a leader in electronic benefit payment systems technology, announced that it has implemented a service expansion that gives card customers direct, real-time access to its Benny® Central data base, saving time and money for third party administrators and employers offering programs that use the Benny® prepaid card system.

"The web services architecture we now offer our clients gives them seamless access to data from our own Benny Central data base using their existing systems," explained Rick Bucchi, Evolution Benefits' senior vice president and CIO. "This amounts to substantial savings of time and money. It gives them the exact data they need, when they need it and they do not have to house the data themselves."

"In a call center environment, having access to real-time data greatly reduces the average call handling time," explained Sean Erwin, Evolution Benefits' vice president of applications development. "It also reduces the amount of time customer service folks spend responding to cardholder inquiries."

According to Craig Combs, Amisys Synertech's (ASI) senior vice president of business development, "Evolution Benefits' enhanced web services architecture delivers increased efficiency while enabling ASI's Advanced Consumer-Directed Healthcare Application to access Benny Central's rich functionality in real-time, ensuring that information is always current. EB's technology innovations provide increased cost-savings and help enhance the effectiveness of ASI's CDH solutions."
