Our story


ecratum was founded in 2013 in Berlin by Christian Alsen and Rüdiger Schulze.

The founders wanted to address the administrative challenge that Quality and Purchasing departments at SMBs are facing when dealing with supplier relationships.

It became clear that developing a platform to make document and data exchange between businesses and their suppliers easy and safe, while saving time and money, was necessary - and so ecratum was born.

Over the years, ecratum grew from a document management tool to an international B2B network where new business partners are found and deals are made.

ecratum consists of 20+ employees from around the globe, serving customers internationally from the Berlin headquarters.
