We ask ourselves every day if there is a better way to manage your important documents. Why do we cut down trees, process them in factories to make paper and then transport that paper to mailboxes all over the country - when we can send letters, invoices and receipts digitally?
Why should you run up to the attic to dig out your high school transcript or search through files in vain, looking for old service contracts? With our upload service, you can store everything that is important to you in one place. A place that is safe, environmentally friendly and that you can access whenever you want.
More than five million Swedes have already discovered Kivra. And more than thirty thousand companies and authorities are connected to our network. But our journey has only just begun and we are going to continue to push ourselves to become an even better place for your most important things.
