Digital credentials

Verifiable digital credentials represent an additional new and interesting business field with great international potential to be developed in the coming years by Procivis, a subsidiary of Orell Füssli AG.

The ongoing digitalization of the economy and society means that interactions and processes in business and public authority transactions are increasingly taking place digitally. This often requires proof of identity documents and certificates, most of which are still produced and used physically today. In future Orell Füssli will offer both physical and digital identity and certificate solutions from a single source, based on secure and unalterable data from trustworthy sources. Additional functionalities are intended to enable simple and efficient interactions and business processes for users, public authorities and companies without media discontinuity.


Inspired by the successful model of a digital society in Estonia, Procivis was founded in 2017 with the aim of combining the success factors of the Estonian model with state-of-the-art technology and the democratic values unique to Switzerland. With its completely new, decentralised E-ID software solution, Procivis One, the company is equipped to offer its technology in digital identity solutions and verifiable digital credentials to customers across the world. Procivis has formed part of the Orell Füssli Group since 2021.
