Docuten: a decade of business growth

Docuten, founded 10 years ago by Brais Méndez and Ángel Aparicio, computer engineers by profession, has become a reference in the digitalization of administrative processes in Spain.

Brais Méndez and Ángel Aparicio, founders of Docuten.

In the beginning, the company was named Enxendra Technologies and at that moment, having two platforms, one dedicated to electronic invoicing and another to the digital signature of documents. In 2018, in order to differentiate ourselves from our competitors and to give more value to our clients, the decision was taken to unify both platforms in a single tool, Docuten. The decision was also taken to adopt the product’s own trade name, Docuten. 

In addition, in that same year 2018 we completed our value proposition with the purchase of Besepa, a startup focused on the automation of online payments. 

After consolidating on the Spanish market, we have already taken the first steps of our international expansion. On the one hand, we have secured the support of the United Kingdom Government through the Global Entrepreneur Program and created a subsidiary in London that will become a key part of our international strategy. And on the other, we actively participate in the EURINV program, whose main objective is to help participants comply with European regulations on Electronic invoicing.
