As part of our digital expansion strategy, Connective opens a new office in Toulouse, France. After opening our first office abroad in Paris in 2017, we felt the need for more local presence in the south of France to further outline our solutions for digital signatures, identity services and smart document generation.
Answering the demand for digital signature solutions
Due to the need for continuous innovation, more and more companies seek to (fully) digitize their business and business processes. Since years, we see an increasing demand and use of digital contracts, invoices, reports and the common acceptance of electronic signatures. To be able to stand out from our competition we always go for the personal approach and stay close to our customer and prospects. So by opening the office in Toulouse we are able to service our clients and prospects in the south of France the best way possible and make sure that all those who are seeking for easy-to-implement solutions can find their way towards Connective.
Shortly after we were starting to shape our idea of opening a new office in Toulouse, into a concept, the whole world was caught by surprise by a pandemic that had us in a tight grip.The digital train was already traveling at great speed, but the worldwide Covid-19 situation, which caused a lot of companies to close their offices temporarily and look out for remote and digital solutions, has accelerated this process even more.
“The opening of this subsidiary is a result of the demand of the Southern-French market for a reliable, locally-based and recognized European partner, to help digitize each stage of their transactions. Whether it’s authentication, workflow management, creating documents or implementing digital signatures, we want to provide in that need by offering simple & reliable solutions. Timing couldn´t be any better, since Covid-19 has brought about a tremendous increase in demand for our digital solutions.” said Nicolas Metivier, CEO of Connective.

Our strength lies in the fact that we are one of the only European actors that can easily & rapidly integrate the advanced and qualified signature process as a whole, while complying with multiple legislations worldwide.
