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.
With a pedigree for technological innovation and a track record spanning over nearly 20 years, our journey tells a story of ambition, commitment and collaboration. But our journey doesn’t end here! It’s only just begun.
2021: Expansion from fifteen to twenty European countries
We start the new year with 3 new acquisitions, gaining a solid foothold throughout Scandinavia and Poland.
We integrate 21grams’ digital solution for processing outgoing invoices into your business, for corporate companies as well as SME’s. BanqUP will enable us to bring more open banking and data analytics capabilities to our SME customer base. With the integration of Akti, we can also help SME’s to develop their e-commerce activities, including order management and invoice processing.
Thanks to these acquisitions, we’re ready to help you make the digital leap.
2020: We are listed on Euronext Brussels
We want to become the leading cloud-based platform for SME business services built on “Documents”, “Identity” and “Payments”.
Since 22 September we are listed on the regulated market of Euronext Brussels. Going public is an important milestone for Unifiedpost Group’s future growth journey as an independent Fintech company.
We launched Jefacture, our digital accounting platform in France.
2019: We are Unifiedpost Group
We are Unifiedpost Group – a pan-European Fintech company that helps customers structure complex financial administrative processes by delivering simple, smart, digital solutions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
2004-09: Our early expansion through Europe
Building on our success in Belgium, we quickly moved into Luxembourg (2004) and the Netherlands (2008) as we set our sights on European expansion. This culminated with the launch of our flagship Development Centre in Timisoara, Romania in 2009.
