What is it: Kivra is the digital home to all your postal mails from banks and government. Furthermore, it’s free, secure and eco-friendly!
How it works: When you first open the app, a login/registration page will ask for your BankID. Once verified and approved, you are taken to the inbox where you will receive and read your mails. Whenever there’s a new one, the service will send you an email alert and push notification. Sign in to the app to read your latest mail!
Kivra is an anagram for arkiv, the Swedish word for ‘archive’. All your mails will be auto sorted by sender for easy management. You can also upload documents to Kivra to secure them in one place.
The sharing function is an added bonus, start sharing the important docs with your partner!
Best for: Disorganized mail recipients or frequent travellers who can’t check their home mailbox
Value Offering: Kivra offers a neat solution to the billion window envelopes sent every year in Sweden, which are both eco-destructive and messy to handle. Combining innovation with sustainability, the social enterprise effectively solves multiple issues for the users, senders and the environment.
The perk of connecting to your mobile BankID, aside from security reason, is that you can easily pay invoice and sign contract within the app.
Hype Level: There are roughly one million users currently receiving mails from the service’s affliated businesses and authorities. The company is owned by 41an Invest and FAM (Wallenberg Foundation). Kivra is valued at 400 million SEK in its latest round of financing, as reported by breakit.se.
