Marburg, 8 September 2020 - Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG (ISIN DE000FPH9000), expert for secure mail business and secure digital communication processes (FP), and weclapp SE, a subsidiary of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN DE0005167902), have agreed on a sales cooperation. Under the terms of the agreement, FP will provide its customers with online access to the cloud-based ERP platform weclapp via the portal discoverFP. Initially, all customers of the German FP sales organisation will have this possibility. The agreement can be extended to other FP national companies in the future. FP receives commissions on the sales generated in this way at weclapp SE.
The active marketing is to start shortly.
Ertan Özdil, CEO of weclapp SE, underlines: "Francotyp-Postalia and weclapp address the same medium-sized customer groups: successful companies and service providers who are currently on the road to digitalisation. Also, FP brings weclapp within reach of their broad customer base, and weclapp opens up comprehensive and easy-to-use possibilities for faster, team-oriented work for these companies".
"For discoverFP, we are constantly looking for attractive offers that make our customers' everyday office life and their communication and business processes more digital and thus easier and more efficient," adds Patricius de Gruyter, Chief Sales Officer of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG. "In our search for an innovative, comprehensive ERP solution for medium-sized businesses, we found what we were looking for at weclapp.
The cloud-based one-stop platform discoverFP represents the convenient way for FP's customers to enter the new, digital working world. In addition to practical enhancements for reporting cost centres and managing postage rates, which make letter communication with a modern franking machine even more efficient and cost-saving, discoverFP also allows other FP products and offers from partners to be discovered and used. FP customers benefit, for example, from FP Parcel Shipping (parcel shipping solution for the American market) or the process-supporting FP Sign (eSignature workflow solution for every industry). The overall goal is to reduce administrative effort, make processes more efficient and, as a partner, to accompany customers step by step on the path to meaningful digitalisation.
As a cloud-based ERP platform, weclapp enables its enterprise customers to process all business transactions from customer contact to invoicing comprehensively with only one software, independent of location and system. Developed for internal and comprehensive teamwork, weclapp ensures faster workflows and more efficient work. The intuitive user guidance simplifies the introduction of the software, the onboarding of the employees and the daily work. The offer as Software-as-a-Service makes on-site installations - for introduction or updates - obsolete: Users automatically always work with the latest version. With ISO/IEC 27001 certification and data hosting in German data centres, the software meets high data security standards.
