Hamburg // In April 2020, Consist ITU and Governikus signed a partner agreement. With this, the companies seal an indirect technical cooperation that has existed for some time.
For more than 10 years, Consist ITU has been developing software for the electronic waste records procedure (eANV), which uses in its central infrastructure many components from the Governikus application of the IT Planning Council, which were developed, among other things, for secure and legally binding exchange via OSCI (Online Services Computer Interface), and which have functioned since 2009 as basic components of the Virtual Mailroom (VPS) of the ZKS-Abfall (Central Waste Coordination Office of the Federal States).
The increasing need for secure infrastructures, especially in communication with public authorities (e.g., due to the Online Access Act), leads us to expect a growing demand for corresponding services. With the partner agreement, Consist ITU secures access to Governikus products and support. Governikus gains an experienced partner for the development and distribution of its own products.
