Connective partners with Emakina to expand the electronic Signatures footprint in Switzerland
We are glad to announce that we will be partnering up with Emakina, a leading independent European digital agency that strongly focuses on creating effective digital customer journeys for their customers. The goal of this strategic partnership is to accelerate the growth of our digital signatures in the Swiss and global market.
After partnering up with Swisscom Trust Services to expand the electronic Signatures solution of Connective for the Swiss Market, we are now building a strategic partnership with Emakina to accelerate the go to market in that area. Through the partnership, Emakina will be responsible for direct sales and implementation services of the Connective electronic signatures solution for the Swiss region mainly but also globally in a second phase.
“In many digital processes, especially in situations where remote work is the norm, an integrated electronic signatures solution is becoming indispensable. As a result we feel an increasing need for electronic signatures at our customers.” Explains Arnaud Grobet, Partner at Emakina. “That is why this partnership with Connective is very important for us. The main differentiator and the reason why we´ve chosen to resell Connective eSignatures is its combination of great user experience with strong compliancy. With this solution we can best help our customers to transform their business into a wonderful but also secure digital experience.”
Qualified Electronic signatures for the Swiss market
As mentioned above, we´ve recently integrated the signature service of Swisscom Trust Services in our eSignatures solution. This service includes both advanced and qualified electronic signature solutions under eIDAS (EU) and ZertES (Switzerland) regulation that can be used on a global scale. Thanks to this partnership we now have a secure and user-friendly electronic signatures solution for the Swiss market. By partnering up with Emakina we will also have a better knowledge on how to approach this market.
“It is the right moment to push this new offering to the Swiss market together with Emakina. Our product is 100% ready for the region thanks to our recent partnership with Swisscom Trust Services.” Concludes, Niels Rolland, Sales Manager at Connective.
Arnaud Grobet, Partner at Emakina concludes: “We strongly believe in the ‘glocal’ strategy of Connective. They offer a variety of signing methods including many local eID´s as well as other public identity initiatives. But the portfolio also includes more globally accepted signing methods like biometric signing or signing with a one-time password (SMS and email) and now also the signing service, including video-verification, of Swisscom Trust Services. For no matter what case they have a signing solution. This makes Connective eSignatures more versatile and future proof than any other electronic signatures provider.”
For Fabrice Offret, Connective Chief Commercial officer, Emakina was an obvious partner when looking to bring the solution into the region with greater focus. “Emakina and Connective share the same DNA. We both put the user in the center and strongly focus on transforming the digital experience. They are the right partner to bring our electronic signatures product to the market and to expand our footprint in Switzerland.”
