ValidSign, the Benelux market leader in digital signing, is pleased to announce its partnership with Visma. This collaboration will strengthen ValidSign’s market position in Europe and support its ambition for European expansion. Through this strategic acquisition, Visma enhances its position in the growing market of digital signatures and reaffirms its commitment to delivering innovative solutions to its customers across Europe.

Since 2016, ValidSign has been making significant progress in the field of digital signing. It has emerged as the market leader in digital signing across various market segments in the Benelux region. With hundreds of standard integrations with applications and vendors such as AFAS, ADP, SAP, Centric, Exact, TopDesk, SalesForce, Microsoft, and Aareon, ValidSign is known as the enterprise solution for digital signing. “This acquisition does not change ValidSign’s market approach but strengthens the foundation to consolidate our market position and shape further expansion in Europe,” said John Lageman, CEO of ValidSign. “This acquisition emphasizes our organization’s international ambitions and provides us with opportunities to further enhance our internal professionalism, enabling us to better support our customers in implementing and utilizing the ValidSign platform.”

Visma, a reliable partner for organizations in the Netherlands, has been providing leading software solutions in accounting, payroll administration, HR, and more for many years. The acquisition of ValidSign underscores Visma’s ongoing investment in innovation and its ambition to provide customers with future-oriented technologies that contribute to their success. Additionally, existing Visma customers will find it even easier to digitalize their signing processes with the integration of ValidSign within the Visma application landscape.

“We are delighted to welcome ValidSign to the Visma family,” said Marijn van Baar, M&A Director Benelux at Visma. “This acquisition strengthens our capacity to provide solutions that align with the needs of modern businesses striving for efficiency and digital transformation. With ValidSign, we can better support our customers in simplifying signing processes and improving document security.”

The main reason for this strategic collaboration, as identified by ValidSign, is the international growth the company is currently experiencing. Visma recognizes the potential of ValidSign and sees opportunities to further expand the company at an international level.

ValidSign will continue to operate under its own name with its current team as an independent entity within the Visma Group. Agreements with customers and partners will remain unchanged.
