Strategy

Marketing strategy

The business strategy for electronic invoicing is B2B2C:
- We convince accounting solutions, CRMs, ERPs and DSPs (document service providers that send tens of millions of invoices for third-party accounts) to integrate our solution through business contacts. The benefit to them is financial because they will receive a part of the revenues and they increase the value of their products.
- We then market our solution to billers through marketing and direct contact with major issuers. They adopt our solution to be paid better, more regularly and at a lower cost.
- Transmitted bills then contain a payment banner so that citizens can switch to e-billing and pay in one click.

Other approaches such as inbound marketing, testimonials and press conferences with the players who integrate our solutions are in progress.

Distribution strategy

We are contacting big issuers trying to get their CFO as a point of contact.

We contact integrators based on customers who use their services and would like to use Digiteal. We conclude with them an integrator agreement in which they are financially interested in sending a maximum of volume through Digiteal.

The onboarding is performed through self-service on our platform. Paid support is also available to help companies integrate Digiteal.

Internationalisation strategy

Our first goal is to firmly establish our activity in Belgium with testimonials and a significant revenue. Once this is done, we will have a good base to extend our solution internationally.

We made an analysis of the different countries of the Euro zone at first to qualify those that are the most promising. We will begin by deploying in those countries by supporting their language, finding distributors and starting with some first pilot companies in each selected country.

Main partners

Digiteal makes its own developments. It owns the platform, web application and mobile apps on Android and IOS. This allows us to have very little variable costs.Our main partner is Belfius for the operationalisation of our payments.
