Dokobit acquired largest document signing portal in Estonia DigiDoc from SK ID Solutions.
This move will let us provide new functionality, such as an updated user interface, the ability to simultaneously sign several documents, and offer improved document management functionality for existing DigiDoc customers.
“We believe that the management transfer of the portal will be beneficial for all the concerned parties. Firstly, the users of the portal, who will get new functionality, will benefit. Secondly, for the SK ID Solutions, the change represents an opportunity to focus on our main activity, i.e., the management and development of e-ID infrastructure. Considering the fact that Dokobit has been successful in Lithuania, I am sure that this change will benefit all the portal’s current and future users”, Member of the SK ID Solutions Management Board Kalev Pihl said.
“By taking over the management of the DigiDoc portal and expanding our activities geographically, we are strengthening our position as a provider of e-signing solutions in the Baltic countries. Our long-term experience in Lithuania and in other countries enables us to provide better functionality to the users of the DigiDoc portal and to introduce new services to the Estonian market”, Gintas Balčiūnas, the Business Development Director at Dokobit, said.
Portal users will be able to keep using the portal as they have done so far. This change does not affect the documents saved in the DigiDoc portal, or the security or privacy of these documents. In the future, the information related to the portal users and their documents will continue to be stored according to strict security standards. It is planned to create many new functions for DigiDoc users, including a larger number of supported document formats and signing opportunities for new countries.
