Remove any paper hassle
Connective helps every organization, no matter the size or industry, to do business any place and anytime – in a fully digital way. With our Identity Hub, eSignatures and Smart Documents solutions, our customers can streamline their digital transactions across borders and transform any paper-based customer journey (e.g. onboarding, KYC and contract management) into an unparalleled digital user experience.

Unique in our ‘Glocal’ approach
More and more processes of all kinds – even the ones that have always implied the physical act of creating, exchanging and signing paperwork, such as closing a contract – are being digitized.

But ever since its existence, the digital transactions market is dealing with a big challenge: Governmental rules and regulations, plus the legal acceptance of digital signatures and digital identification strongly vary worldwide.

At Connective we continuously invest in innovation and compliance to offer the best and – above all – the most secure ‘glocal’ signing and identity solutions. Connective eSignatures and Identity Hub have evolved to global solutions which include signing and identification methods that range from one-size-fits-all solutions to local electronic identity cards and digital identity schemes. Today, Connective helps any company to service all their clients around the world by offering both generic signature methods as well as locally available means of identification, while being compliant with the European- (eIDAS regulation), Swiss (ZertES), US and many other legislations.

Antwerp roots, global mindset
Connective was founded in Antwerp in 2014 as a small start-up. Today we can proudly state that we are a market leader for digital identification and digital signing solutions in Benelux and beyond. And because of our strong international ambitions, we have also opened offices in Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Copenhagen, Toulouse & Barcelona.

This impressive growth was made possible by both our investors and our management.
Connective’s Board of Directors is chaired by Michel Akkermans, founder and former CEO of Clear2Pay. Mr. Akkermans is accompanied in the Board by Erik Dralans, ex-CIO of ING Group and ex-CEO of ING Belgium along with Nicolas Metivier, the CEO of Connective.

Companies such as BNP Paribas Fortis, ING Bank, AG Insurance, Belgian Mobile ID (Itsme®), Proximus, Attentia, Talentsoft, Toyota, Ramsay, Grant Thornton, Pirelli, Bank Delen and many others firmly believe in our solution.

A bright digital future
The most exciting part of the journey is what lies ahead. Thanks to the internet, the world is increasingly connected. People have instant access to an endless supply of knowledge and entertainment. The efficiency levels we are able to achieve are unprecedented. But the internet also comes with a range of challenges, one of which is digital identification. Today, physical documents can no longer be the only mode of identification. That is why anywhere in the world digital identification means arise, which in turn can also be used as electronic signature methods. Therefore Connective is currently intensively investing in its Identity Hub to offer a more frictionless identity management across the globe.

Do you want to stay tuned about our newest innovations?

" One of the main reasons for us to choose Connective is the fact that they are a well-established European party offering digital signature and identification solutions. This makes us not only future proof when we want to expand business across borders, but also guarantees us that we will be able to use additional signing methods in our own country, such as itsme®".
