e-Boks is the Nordic region’s biggest e-mailbox and it has been available in Sweden since last fall. For PostNord, which owns 50 percent of e-Boks, it is important to be able to offer its own competition to Posten Norge’s Digimail and the Swedish National Tax Agency’s Mina Meddelanden.
Nordic region’s biggest e-mailbox
-Boks is the Nordic region’s biggest e-mailbox and it has been available in Sweden since last fall. For PostNord, which owns 50 percent of e-Boks, it is important to be able to offer its own competition to Posten Norge’s Digimail and the Swedish National Tax Agency’s Mina Meddelanden.
The initiative also entails giving consumers the power to choose how they want to receive their communications.
“With e-Boks, you can receive your mail wherever you are – that means administrative mail, like insurance policies, account statements and pay slips,” says specialist sales rep at PostNord Per Lindberg.
Digital pay slips
The new deal with Scandic Hotels involves PostNord delivering digital pay slips to Scandic’s staff.
“Initially, this means Scandic can now save money on both postage and printing. They have a lot of short-term employees, seasonal workers who move a lot, and a digital mailbox is great for them.”
The next step in the deal might be reviewing Scandic’s hiring process with the goal that new employees will be able to sign their employment agreements using e-Boks, as well as have a two-way communication and a signing solution, making physical documents unnecessary.
“Only E-Boks offers these services on the Swedish market,” says Per Lindberg.
The deal is a strategic step
For PostNord, the deal is a first strategic step for e-Boks and PostNord taking market share together and increasing the volume of users in Sweden.
“In the second step, we want to get deeper into processes with customers and help simplify their work procedures, for example with two-way communication and document signing. That is where major savings for customers will be.”
e-Boks was founded in 2001 in Denmark to minimize paper consumption for private customers, businesses and government authorities.
In 2015, e-Boks was also established in Sweden. It is owned here by PostNord and
Nets. Last year, over 250 million documents were sent to over 10 million Nordic users.
