What is Penneo's secret sauce? Penneo is a great company with an innovative vision, strong work ethic, and meaningful core values. Find out how it all began!
Penneo is about a dream - a vision. It all began in 2014 when three Danish entrepreneurs put their thinking caps on and started Penneo out with the intention of changing the world. After conducting extensive research, they discovered that getting documents signed was a problem for both small and large businesses alike. Companies were wasting valuable time and resources on document signing, so our three heroes decided to do something about it.
The Danish NemID was the answer - the core of the Penneo software. Penneo makes it possible for companies and individuals to save paper by signing and managing their documents digitally in a secure and compliant way. Throw away your old pens! Penneo - the new pen - will be the last pen you'll ever need to digitally and securely sign documents via eID.
Our core values define us. They are the compass that guides our business process, product development, and brand story. In an ever-changing world, it is the core values that become the much needed constant. As our company continues to grow and develop, our values remain unchanged.
It all started with three Danish entrepreneurs...
...who wanted to make a positive impact in the world. They noticed that the whole document signing process was a big hassle for numerous companies. Businesses were wasting a great deal of time and resources on getting papers signed and handling documents. To help businesses improve their document signing and management processes, the three heroes of our story created Penneo. The software was built around the Danish NemID. Our solution makes it possible for companies and individuals to securely sign contracts by using eID. Furthermore, Penneo makes documents and contracts secure and compliant with legal requirements for digital signature.
Who were the early adopters?
Danish accountants, lawyers, and property managers were some of the first ones to try Penneo out. Later, the financial industry and leasing companies followed. In the first 4 years, almost 1,000 companies jumped on board the Penneo ship. Many HR departments, municipalities, and public institutions have also started using Penneo since employment contracts and corporate customer forms are currently being shifted to a digital environment. Penneo takes the hassle out of downloading, printing, and manually filling out web forms. Our software allows customers to download and sign documents and contracts directly on their computers and smartphones. Every day, new customers start using our platform and it looks like they love Penneo as much as we love them.
Sweden and Norway
We started in Denmark, but we soon conquered the other Nordic countries as well. Due to increasing interest in Penneo, in 2016, we expanded to Norway and Sweden too. The concept is the same - compliant and secure document signing and management - even though the technology is different from country to country. As a start-up, Penneo was flexible enough to adapt to the new markets and accommodate its new Scandinavian clients. The result? Penneo provided Scandinavian companies with the digital tools to compete in an ever-shifting digital environment. By using Penneo, these companies optimized their workflows, saved money and resources, and gained competitive advantage.
Time to take over the rest of the world
Denmark, Norway, and Sweden were just the first milestones. Belgium followed. Psst! Did you know that more than half of all annual reports in the Nordic countries are signed with Penneo? And we are not stopping here! We have our eyes set on many European countries. We can't wait to help other countries digitize and automate their document management journey and achieve full business process automation!
