Signicat to enhance Digital Identity Platform with Swisscom Trust Services

European digital identity services provider, Signicat has entered into a partnership with Swisscom Trust Services in a bid to enhance its Digital Identity Platform through the utilization of qualified electronic signature (QES) functionality and to enable the supplier to provide legally binding handwritten signatures.

“Expanding our platform to cover QES enhances our ability to meet our customer’s needs for secure, regulatory-compliant digital identity services,” said Gunnar Nordseth, CEO of Signicat. “Swisscom Trust Services has convinced us with its agility and expertise to translate high legal requirements into technology. Our combined joint offerings complement each other and together we enable customers to easily further develop their business models.”

According to the supplier, Swisscom’s e-signature solution is expected to assist Signicat in providing enhanced customer experience and enable the development of digital trust via a number of sources including social logins to eIDAS.

“In Signicat, we have found a partner who not only complements our offering but also shares our vision,” commented Marco Schmid, Head of International Expansion Strategy at Swisscom. “Customers today demand a smooth digital customer journey and will not tolerate friction. Together with Signicat, we enable companies to live up to this expectation and thus develop their innovation potential.”

Swisscom Trust Services is a provider of qualified electronic signature in the EU jurisdictions and Switzerland. It enables its partners to create pan-European digital innovations by providing identity-based services that can run completely digitally without disruption and allows partners to easily extend their own business solutions with an electronic signature, taking into account industry-specific requirements and compliance regulations.

Recently, Signicat announced new capabilities for expanding and enhancing the reach of its digital identity verification service to 208 countries with offerings including identity document scanning, web-based video interviews, NFC scanning of passports, etc.


Established in 2007 in Norway, Signicat is a pan-European digital identity company that incorporates a suite of identity verification and authentication systems in the world, all accessible through a single integration point. The platform supports the full identity journey, from recognition and on-boarding, through login and consent.
