Fresh off its performances at FinovateAsia and FinDEVr—where the company was awarded “Favorite Alum” by conference attendees—Lleida.net announces a partnership with the largest financial institution in Ecuador. The agreement will bring Lleida.net’s electronic notification and contracting technology, Connectaclick, to Banco Pichincha and its customers in Peru, Columbia, Bolivia, Panama, as well as Ecuador. “The agreement ratifies the interest of the banking sector for contracting and notification services as an added value for their clients,” Lleida.net CEO Sisco Sapena said. “We are proud that such a consolidated bank in Latin America entrusted us for an important and sensitive area for the company.”
Lleida.net’s data-validation technology provides businesses and other organizations with confirmation of both receipt and content of electronically delivered material. The company’s Connectaclick solution, active in more than 150 countries, enables e-signature contracts to be delivered from anywhere using any device, with proof of delivery provided via registered SMS, email, or invoice. “Keep in mind that (telecom) operators are considered trusted third parties in front of the law,” Sapena explained at our FinDEVr conference this fall, adding that the technology provides an additional level of assurance that satisfied legal notification requirements. “Depending on what we say on that certificate,” Sapena said, “and depending on the case obviously, people can be jailed.”
Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Lleida, Spain, Lleida.net demonstrated its registered email and electronic contracting technology at FinovateAsia 2016. In September the company announced that it had won a key U.S. patent it said marked a “turning point” for its plans to expand internationally. Earlier this year, Lleida.net launched its Platform4Shares campaign in which the company offered its services in exchange for equity shares. The initiative was modeled after MediatorEquity, in which advertising agencies provide services to startups in exchange for a stake in the company.
