Who is Unifiedpost Group
Throughout the world, businesses are digitalising their financial value chain: from contract or order, to invoice, payment and financing. For this evolution to succeed, there must be a trusted network connecting this diverse ecosystem.
Our secure, cloud-based platform empowers businesses by creating a space where this network can exist and deliver streamlined, automated business functions, from e-invoicing and payments processing, to working capital financing, e-identity solutions and more.
Our evolution into Unifiedpost Group
With a pedigree for technological innovation and a track record spanning over 17 years, our journey tells a story of ambition, commitment and collaboration.
2002: Our foundation
“UnifiedPost” was founded in Belgium by our CEO, Hans Leybaert, with a central focus on document processing technology.
2004 –09: Our early expansion through Europe
Building on our success in Belgium, we quickly moved into Luxemburg (2004) and the Netherlands (2008) as we set our sights on European expansion. This culminated with the launch of our flagship Development Centre in Timisora, Romania in 2009.
2012-13: Our first acquisitions
Eager to catch the digitalisation wave, we knew we needed to combine organic growth with new capabilities. Our first acquisitions, PowertoPay (2012), a corporate payment hub, and Finodis (2013), a financial services provider, set us on the path to becoming an integrated cloud solution capable of serving our customers’ entire document processing and financial value chain.
2014-15: Welcoming new capabilities
Managing documents and approvals is a complex collaborative process that occurs within businesses and between entities. It is a critical element of the financial value chain and it’s central to Unifiedpost Group’s offering today.
This was made possible when we welcomed eID (2014) and Zet Solutions (2015) to the Group, which combined brought identity recognition services, document signing tools and community platform solutions to the business.
2016: A new platform for payments
Today, our platform functions as a central hub where customers can access all their financial data - anytime and anywhere. In 2016 we launched PAY-NXT, officially establishing Unifiedpost Group as a payment institution. This is why our customers can manage invoicing as well as payments using our platform.
2017: The future is integrated
A central tenet of digital transformation is the ability to share, store and access data remotely and collaboratively. Our acquisition of Nomadesk brought this capability to our customers.
However, there was still one piece missing from the puzzle: automation. With the acquisition of Onea, which delivers automated accounting services with ERP-integrated accounting solutions, our mission to serve the entire document processing and financial value chain was near complete.
2018: Consolidating our position
This year was all about consolidating our complete offering. We brought further strength to our financial accounting integration solutions with the addition of ADM Solutions. In the same year, Inventive Designers brought more capabilities in the form of high-volume, omni-channel customer communications technology and other related consultative services.
2019: We are Unifiedpost Group
Today, we are Unifiedpost Group – a pan-Europe Fintech company that helps customers structure complex financial ecosystems by delivering convenient, smart, digital solutions.
The acquisition of Fitek has secured our footprint in eight new markets.
But our journey doesn’t end here! It’s only just begun.
