Namirial

Environmental Thesis

Digitalization is intrinsically linked to sustainability. By enabling businesses to digitalize, Namirial enables efficient remote working and transaction execution, reduces the use of paper and the need for traveling to in-person meetings, and helps businesses make a significant saving in the usage of paper, water, energy, and landfill, as well as reducing their CO2 footprint.

Business

Headquartered in Senigallia, Italy, Namirial provides a wide range of digital transaction management (“DTM”) solutions – including customer identification, onboarding and authentication, e-signatures, long-term archiving, electronic registered delivery, e-invoicing, and document workflow solutions. Namirial also provides compliance-related software solutions and services for accounting, HR, tax, building and construction, and cyber-defence. The company was founded in 2000 by Enrico Giacomelli and Claudio Gabellini, who will retain stakes of 25% and 5% respectively.

With 440 employees, offices in 5 countries and 120 international partners, Namirial serves over one million customers worldwide, including both large businesses and SMEs. The company enabled over one billion transactions in 2019 for which more than 500 million electronic signatures were generated.  The company’s revenues have reached €50 million in recent years, driven by its DTM business which grew at over 30% CAGR. The driver of this strong growth has been the successful conversion of businesses from models based on physical meetings to online engagements and non-attended self-service branches, covering all steps of an omnichannel customer journey.

Ambienta will enable Namirial and its management team to scale-up the company’s ambitious growth strategy by strengthening the firm’s organization, further extending its international presence and enriching its products and services portfolio.
