Our Purpose


At Tickstar, we’re on a journey to help businesses connect and interact more seamlessly through eDelivery of business documents. We started on this journey 16 years ago as a pioneering software provider, and now service large scale corporations throughout Europe, Asia and Oceana. 

Tickstar offers a suite of cloud based solutions, enabling customers to send and receive documents through the Peppol network - a secure eDelivery network that has been adopted by a number of leading economies around the world. Tickstar is now one of the most trusted providers globally, operating one in five access points on the Peppol network. 

We were recently acquired by the global cloud accounting software company, Xero, who saw a beautiful connection between our purpose and their endeavour to help businesses thrive through better tools, information and connections. Together, we’re reducing administrative burden and making it easier for businesses around the world to transact and exchange documents across borders.
