Belgian digital administration platform Doccle expands to the Netherlands
Digital administration platform Doccle is expanding into the Netherlands, the Belgian company reported in a press release on Thursday. By acquiring the data vault solution developed by Dutch technology company Smart Service Company, Doccle can also offer its services in the Netherlands.
The ambition is to have 4 million Dutch people using Doccle's data safe or to be familiar with the application within five years. How much the company paid for the takeover has not been disclosed.
"With 2.8 million compatriots and more than 17,500 companies already using the Belgian document vault to manage and share their payslips and other important documents securely, Dutch companies and consumers will be able to join in," the company says.
"The Netherlands may be more advanced in digitisation and data sharing, but they do not yet have a total solution as efficient and secure as ours"
"The Netherlands may already be more advanced in digitisation and data sharing, but they do not yet have a total solution as efficient and secure as ours," says Doccle CEO Bram Lerouge. "Especially as cybercrime continues to grow and become increasingly sophisticated, storing and sharing data and documents securely only becomes more important."
Doccle, launched in 2014, is the largest digital administration platform in Belgium. Nine years after it was launched, more than 17,548 insurers, banks, telecom providers and other companies and public authorities use it to deliver invoices, payslips and other important documents directly to their customers' personal document vaults. Almost 3 million people in Belgium, or six in 10 families (57%), already store their documents with Doccle, and 1,000 new users are added daily, the company says.
