Nitro customers and partners can enjoy even more advanced e-signing capabilities and the market’s most expansive electronic identity (eID) support with the acquisition of Connective.
Nitro’s enterprise-grade, high-trust eSign and e-document applications make it one of only three vendors today with the reach to fully empower digital teams wherever they are worldwide — whether the task in question is digital workflow automation or secure document handling and management online.
As Sam Chandler, co-founder and CEO of Nitro, says: “This is truly a milestone moment for Nitro. Like our recent acquisition of PDFpen, the much-loved suite of PDF productivity apps for Mac, iPad and iPhone, joining forces with Connective means further accelerating our product roadmap and delivering additional value to our current and future customers.”
Welcoming Connective into the Nitro fold means the instant addition of best-in-class functionality to the Nitro Productivity Platform, to cover off rapidly expanding customer demand for enterprise and high-trust digitised document management, identification and workflow automation.
Connecting and empowering business customers
Connective boasts over 30 eID and smart card integrations across 20 countries. Not only is this more than any e-signature vendor, but it boosts the Nitro Sign Premium ability to connect eSign workflows with popular systems and tools such as Microsoft, SAP, Salesforce and OnBase — or customise your own via Nitro Open API.
“This is what customers want. As workflows become increasingly digitised – a process accelerated by the pandemic – CIOs and IT leaders everywhere know that increased efficiency, trust, security and regulatory compliance are vital to business success,” confirms Chandler.
Connective’s roster of blue-chip customers already includes the French and Belgian governments, BNP Paribas, ING Bank, Pirelli and Toyota. Founded in Belgium in 2014, Connective today meets the needs of more than 1000 e-sign customers across Europe — and the vision of CEO Nicolas Metivier is set to fuel further growth.
“Their products are immediately ready for global scale and this is why the partnership with Nitro is so powerful,” says Chandler.
Nitro Sign Premium is aligned with multiple industry standards, from ISO 270001, GDPR, EUTA, eSIGN Act, eIDAS and ZertES to laws in Hong Kong and Singapore — meeting today’s organisational needs for stringent regulatory compliance.
With Nitro’s global sales network and platform combined with Connective’s market-leading products — making for a 13,000-plus business customer base in 150 countries — opportunities for partners and customers are vastly expanded — talk to QBS to learn more about business benefits, sales and licensing.
